is it possible to modify the Award BIOS V6.00PG so it won't be possible to press F8 an get a bootlist during boot? (ASUS MB A8N SLI Premium).

Background: I disabled all boot devices expect disk an set a BIOS passwort.
So the "normal user" should only boot from disk. But it is still possible to press
F8 during startup and get the bootlist to choose e.g. floppy.

This crap is unfortunately in many new BIOSes. These "very cool" features actually prevents the boards from being used in any serious applications :x

You could break the F8 key on the keyboard...though you'd have to make sure that nobody suspects that this is the case... :roll:
