Question
Why there is no display after changing “Operation System Select” to “Windows 8” from “Windows 7 or other OS” or “Manual” option in BIOS setup ?

Answer
You may probably receive no display output from monitor with external graphics card installed, which can’t fully support Windows 8 in UEFI mode, when change “Operation System Select” to “Windows 8” from “Windows 7 or other OS” or “Manual”. The reason mostly caused by external graphics cards only support legacy mode working on Windows 7 / Windows XP but Windows 8 UEFI mode. The suggestions for this circumstance are :

- Using a graphics card with Windows 8 certificated.
- Keep “Operation System Select” as “Windows 7 or other OS” or “Manual”.
