When the unit turns on, I can ask for the POST screen by pressing the TAB key when the BIOS splash screen appears. However, the POST output to the screen appears and is gone again in less than 1 second preventing me from learning anything from it.
press Pause / Break on the keyboard - it should halt the POST. Press Enter to continue
