Having thought more about this, it then would imply that F8 is NOT a BIOS option but a post-BIOS, pre-Win startup option that is really being recognized by Windows?
Also, the Gigabyte manual says F9 is for some driver
disk hard drive backup thing (sounds like Gigabyte proprietary).
The F12 is to be able to set which device to boot from without entering the Full BIOS menu.
Either way, you'd think F12 would work.
