Windows 8 BIOS setup feature?

Recommended Posts

There is a BIOS setup option with my MSI Z77A-GD65 motherboard called "Windows 8 Feature". It can be enabled or disabled. I don't know what it is supposed to do. When I try to enable it I get this console-like screen on boot up. Any ideas what this is about or whether it should be enabled?

I couldn't find anything in the manual about it.

I enabled the fast boot stuff at the same time and it's fine now.

What in your pea brain little mind makes you think that spamming a post from 2013 is an inconspicuous way to look like a real user?

 

And yes, I think thats one of my first 'personal attacks' on this forum, ever, but MY GOD, what on earth compels you to post that sort of spam?
