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.

    Do you want to configure the BIOS? Or just boot into the BIOS? Jun 9 '10 at 18:54

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. :-))

  • And the motherboard itself ;) A keyboard would be useful as well.
