USB BIOS Flashback button

That's such a nice feature on the ASUS boards to have that USB BIOS Flashback button, I can imagine especially on new MB installations that have an older bios that is problematic to your current setup, and so before hooking up any other hardwares except for the power supply and MB, you can update the bios and fix the problem - this is a Great feature!

My question is - what does Intel do for the equivalent feature of that on their new motherboards?

Re: USB BIOS Flashback button

The answer to my question is that the Intel "Back To Bios" button, is what it's called on my DZ77BH-55K board anyway, is if you're in windows or even if the computer is off, if you push the button in then the next time you boot it will boot straight into the bios gui is all - it does nothing more than that.

I guess it's a convenience thing so you don't have to press any keys while booting, but it can be a pain when most of the time you forget that you pushed it in to the On position, and so when you go to exit the bios and reboot only to have it prompt you to be sure to put he button back to the Off position, and that makes you have to reboot again.
