Your description of the Bios menu makes it sound SO spartan I almost 
wonder if there isn't ANOTHER menu with other options. Some BIOSes put 
the boot menu on a different menu eg F10 to get into one, Esc or F2 or 
something to get into the other.

There ARE some BIOSes that have just locked it down completely and eff 
you if you aren't running a Microsoft operating system, but those are 
thankfully still rare. There are more of them here in Japan where 
consumers tend to be more docile... I hope that isn't a trend that is 
going to reach the rest of the world in force.
