I have a new motherboard (Jetway NF98), and unlike prior BIOS/boards I have had, I am unable to garuntee a boot priority list and lock the BIOS out.


Ensure only one disk/port is booted from.


BIOS has dynamic boot priority list; depending on what is connected and at what time, the list can automatically change.

Does anybody know a way to achieve this?

I do not want all the other disk ports completely disabled (read: post boot) but I do not want the system to try and boot from any other disk besides the one I configure it to.

Awesome. Another name for my "Do Not Buy" list. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Mar 28 '12 at 18:52
My thoughts exactly. Too bad everything else about the board makes it perfect for my purposes. – c card Mar 28 '12 at 19:05
Physically disconnect all the rest? – Everett Aug 10 '12 at 1:25
