    I have OpenElec installed. If during startup I press on Esc (Udoo splash screen shows) Press Esc for Frontpage..it boots right up to OpenElec.

    Any pointers?

    Nevermind. Once I plugged a usb dvd player in...it did go to the bios after pressing Esc.

    I also change the time out seconds to like 5-9, so my wireless keyboard has the chance to connect and hit esc.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Ubuntu runs pretty well on the UdooX86 with 4GB ram!!!

    And hitting ESC multiple times also helps a lot. Just start hitting the key on the moment you start booting

    Thanks Walter. I hit esc like I was playing space invaders!! No joy until I connected something that the board saw as a possible bootable device.
