While I save the $$ for a mini slot dvd player, I was wondering - are external USB DVD enclosures accessible during the BIOS POST? ie. will it read my winXP cd if I ever need to repair the system, or do I have to have the DVD player plugged right into the mobo for the BIOS to read from the DVD player?
