So here is my problem: I have a T430s with two hard drives that boot two different operating systems running Windows 8. As you know, Windows 8 uses hybrid boot/shutdown, a sort of half-hibernation thing that speeds up booting. When hibernating for real or using hybrid boot, Windows seems to tell the BIOS "Hey, I'm hibernating, skip the boot menu." So when I start up the computer, pressing F12 to choose what device to boot off of won't work - the BIOS ignores it and just boots using the normal boot order, which is super frustrating.
Is there some way to fix this? Maybe a registry setting? I can't find anything in the BIOS but I may be missing something.
As always, thank you for your help, gentlemen.
