Hello all,

I am curious as to whether there might be a BIOS version for this mobo that has a conventional text-based setup UI?

I'm old and find the cartoonish, graphics laden presentation of v1.60 to be more annoying than helpful--I'm just configuring a BIOS, not looking for an entertainment "experience".

I am also not wild about its listing the boot devices by what it determines to be the installed o/s; in my support role I have multiple boot devices with variants of Ubuntu loaded, in the BIOS boot configuration the are all listed as just "ubuntu" making selecting the particular one I want a trial and error experience,

The whole shtick has a very "happy-homeowner" flavour to it...
Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet.
We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future.
And we are all mortal.

Your only option would be to look at BIOS modding forums is my guess.

If your board uses UEFI then it's highly unlikely there will be a regular BIOS
available for it. UEFI replaced the BIOS interface quite some time ago. The only
BIOS style UI based boards you will find new these days are in some prebuilt systems
(Dell, HP etc) and no-name/unknown brand boards from China.

As for boot device naming/renaming, try searching:
"rename boot options linux"

Boot device naming is handled by the OS not the BIOS/UEFI. You should be able
to rename them to anything you choose following the guides the above search will
pull up.

Not a huge fan of UEFI over the old BIOS setup myself but sadly it seems to be
here to stay. There are a number of reasons UEFI has taken over, security being
one of the big ones.

Hope this answers your questions.
