Question

Bios

I can't enter the bios even when following onscreen step by step instructions. It doesn't let me go to the next step, and wont show what the instructions tell you should show next after a certain point.

Gigabyte Z270X Aorus Gaming 7 w/ Core i5 6600K CPU running Windows 10, (which i'm not a fan of). Thinking of going back to Windows 7. The whole idea behind switching to Win 10 was to get my NVME SSD to work (which it didn't w/ Win 7)...

The following guide has worked for me:

To access your BIOS on a Windows 10 PC, you must follow these steps.
W+I / Update & security / Recovery / Click Restart Now under Advanced startup / Click Troubleshoot / Click Advanced options / Select UEFI Firmware Settings / Click Restart

My problem is when I get to that point where everyone is saying "tap on UEFI Firmware" it dosent show that. Is that word for word what it should be saying, or can it be worded differently?

Yes.

I've seen different wording.

Cant get into bios

In reply to: Bios

Right, but the question is "what is that particular wording?"....hmmm. I don't want to screw anything up by not knowing where to navigate too and tapping on the wrong thing. I have already clicked on a couple or three options and those were incorrect.

It may specific to your model.
