ASRock H81M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs AsRock H81M-DGS Can't Boot from DVD 07/03/2014

This review is from: ASRock H81M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice pretty BIOS menu

Cons: There is no setting on the H81M-DGS that will permit it to boot from any DVD not released by Microsoft. Thus, no operating system can be installed except for Windows. This renders the motherboard completely useless to me. I spent three hours troubleshooting this thing; it's relentlessly locked to only boot into Windows. I suspect AsRock is getting a payoff from Microsoft, and that's why the board's so cheap. Anyone who buys it will be locked into Microsoft products forever.

Other Thoughts: Never going to buy AsRock again, of course. Will study reviews of other motherboards very carefully to ensure that other users were able to install Linux.
