Hi there,
I have been trying many times to go to Bios mode in Mac Book. Can you please provide me key to access Bios like DEL in Windows?

Thanks in advance..

Hello
Thanks marc but that doesnot work in my system. What would be other alternatives? I have installed windows XP along with Mac. Is dual boot imposing problems? But, it should not be. isn't it?

Thanks again!!!

Wow, I have no idea about that.

Since you're running XP, I assume this is an Intel Mac, so the Mac OS is 10.4.x, right?

Yes I was hving a simmilar problem so I did a Bing search. there was someone saying that the OS software didn't have a "BIOS" but something that he said was "better" which I forget the name of at the moment. Anyways you access this by pressing Control-Option-O-F at the same time. Sort of like the Control-Alt-Delete when your in windows but at the start up. He also said somehing about adds which I think would just get in your way. Anyways have fun testing this information.
