Pause boot screens

I'm new to W2000, and I'm curious. Is there a way to pause/halt the opening
bootup screens on a W2000 machine (the screens that appear right at bootup
before the splash screen appears.

I'm running a P4 1.GHz, American Megatrends 07.00T Bios, with an ECS M925
motherboard, and a VIA Technologies VT8751 ProSavageDDR P4M266 chipset.


Any help would be appreciated,
Dan

Generally speaking the rightmost key in the topmost row will accomplish what
you want.

It's typically labeled Pause/Break.

I finally got the Pause key to halt the screen where the system listing/irqs
are listed. But I still can't pause the opening screen which lists the bios
information as well as the POST results.


Thanks for the help,

Poke it earlier. and then alternate between it and the spacebar to
advance in jumps.

Well I didn't want to be rude and poke it too soon. Thanks for the tip
about the spacebar.

All you are doing is pausing the BIOS startup. It doesn't know "rude"
;-) You're welcome.
