  1. Hi,

    Can I get into the BIOS of a Shuttle if it has power, but no CPU, RAM and
    hard drive isntalled? If not, what's the bare minimum I need in it to look
    at the BIOS settings?

    You need the CPU (with cooling fitted) and RAM and don't need the
    HD,CDROM or Floppy drives.

    Agree. The BIOS won't know how to configure itself without a CPU (w/cooling)
    and memory. The other standard internals would be nice as
    well.....particularly a hard drive and cd-rom.
