    Default Dual Monitor Boot screen

    OS : Win7
    MB : Asus P8Z68-VPRO
    GPU: Asus GTX 970 DirectCU II
    Monitors: LG connected via HDMI set in Nvidia Control Centre as Primary
    Dell connected via DVI

    The dual setup work OK after Win7 loads - no issues, but, when the PC starts the boot POST , it is displayed on the Dell not the LG which is set as the Primary display.

    Checked BIOS setup, couldn't find any thing relevant to the issue.

    How do I change the display during Boot POST? Possible at all?

    Cheers.

    You can't I don't think. Swap the cables and change the primary to match, that's what I did but mine are both HDMI so it was easy.
    Windows display settings mean nothing to the BIOS.

    I was thinking to swap the cables, but in my setup, I can't as the LG hasn't got a DVI output, only HDMI and D-sub; and there isn't any HDMI input in the Dell display.

    OK. Looks like that's the way it is, nothing I can do about it! Anyway, no big deal, really.

    I run the same graphics card on a system here & it also shows on the secondary screen first.

    Why does it matter?
