So, I have been using my A300W since April 2019, however, there are two issues that I am curious about.

1 - I know that the DEL key will take me to the BIOS, but is there a hotkey that will bring up a boot menu, so I can select a device to boot from (ie: USB stick vs the NVMe SSD)?

2 - Why is it that the BIOS won't display via HDMI? It seems that I can only view it when connected via Display Port. If it matters, my monitor is an Acer XR382CQK (38 inch, 3840x1600 resolution).

Any help you can offer is appreciated.

Dear King_V,

Thank you for choosing ASRock.

Regarding your question,
1. Press F11 when POST can get into boot menu.
2. BIOS only supports certain resolutions. Have you tried with different HDMI monitor?

Yours truly,
