Are the RAM module or CPU required to boot the motherboard? What is the minimal configuration to boot into BIOS? The motherboard I need to boot is a mediocre ASUS socket LGA775.
Yes CPU and RAM is needed to boot up into the BIOS config utility if you meant this. Also a VGA, PSU... and that's it I guess.
(And if you may want to enter to the BIOS, a keyboard comes handy. :-))
