quote:Original post by OrangyTang BIOS = Basic input/output system.It needs to complete its startup *before* any IO operations (like reading data from a floppy) are possible. It could check external devices after its finished, but there''d be no point so it doesn''t. The BIOS password feature is built in and is checked before any of this happens.If you really want a floppy to act like a ''key'' to the computer, then buy a case that has a physical key needed to switch the thing on, the floppy idea isn''t going to work.
