Updating bios and raid
This is the screen where you set the system clock and set several of the drive parameters.
Luckily, most of the newer BIOS' set/read the drive parameters automatically.
As I mentioned earlier, the computer without software (or firmware) is essentially useless.
The BIOS is stored on a small IC that has a small amount of flash memory.
That memory is used to store the values entered when you set up the computer's BIOS parameters.
If you're going to buy a motherboard and want to be able to use a mouse when working with the BIOS presets, look for one with a UEFI BIOS interface.
To get to the BIOS screen, you have to follow the instructions when the computer just starts to boot.
The basic instructions that a computer uses to get up and running are contained in the BIOS (basic input/output system).
