Hi folks,

i've just finished buying all the parts for my new custom build (specs in parts picker link below) and i was wondering if it would be possible to use my HDMI TV as a monitor during the initial bios setup and Windows instilation process or do i need a dedicated monitor?

Thanks.

Yes. Why not?


Well, i had a Toshiba TV some years back that would only desplay my PC when Windows had already booted up and was on the user login screen making it impossible to set up bios on that deiplay. I'm not sure why that was so i'm just making sure that others had used TV's when setting up new builds and perhaps it was just that model TV that had the issue.

Thanks for the reply.
