F2A85-V Pro DirectKey (boot to bios); case button/Win7 shutdown option
Have a need to reboot to flashdrive, so need access to boot option menu. Current case/monitor/keyboard orientation makes it difficult to use normal F8 or Del/F8 options: case is oriented 180 degrees to monitor/keyboard and are several feet apart; can't see monitor when you push power button.
There is a DirectKey on the motherboard which will do a shutdown and then boot to bios if the key or the power button is pressed. This sounds functionally like what I need. There is a 2 pin header labeled "DRCT" on the motherboard.
This connector is for the chassis-mounted button that supports the DirectKey function. Connect the button cable that supports DirectKey, from the chassis to this connector on the motherboard. Ensure that your chassis comes with the button cable that supports the DirectKey feature. Refer to the technical documentation that came with the chassis for details.
Since pressing the button signals the o/s to shutdown, it would seem that there should be a way to simulate this with software; ideally adding a "boot to bios" to the shutdown menu.
Anyone have any ideas?
Edit: Forgot to say it's an Asus mb.
