Well, that's the problem... your PC is too fast to boot. Be sure to add a POST Delay of 10 secs when you enter BIOS :p

I'll try disconnecting the SSD and let you know the result. Thanks.

That's mostly your desktop ging too quickly... tell Windows to restart so it doen't quick boot, that should give you extra seconds. If that fails, disconnect the HDD so you are sure to enter bios upon booting. You can also keep DEL pressed on startup :p

1. Disconnected SATA cables from SSD (System Drive) and HDD >> Get "HDMI no signal" on screen.
2. Disconnected SATA cables from SSD (System Drive) and HDD
    and kept on pressing DEL key on start-up                              >> Get "HDMI no signal" on screen.
Do I have to take out the Power connection too?

Yup, that's for the best. It's strange that it doesn't display video

@p1k2b3

Related to this advice, try to set "time" on this way:

1. Right click on "My Computer" icon
2. Choose "Properties" and after that...
3. "Advanced system settings"
4. "Advanced"
5. "Settings" under "Startup and Recovery"
6. "Tick" option "Time to display list of operating systems" and set 10 sec.
7. Ok


Let us know about results. ;)

cya later,

Congratulations, You Win.

A - Does Your OS Have MSCONFIG.EXE ?

B - Does ( A ) Have A Tab Called BOOT ?

C - Does ( B ) Have An Entry Called TIMEOUT ?

I Configured My ( C ) To 9, But I Have A Dual Boot Of DOS6 And XP.

Cheers.

A - Whatever He Does, He Has To Do It Before The OS Is Loaded,

B - If An Interruption Screen Is Not Displayed Before ( A ), By Forcing Hardware Errors On Purpose Or Something, His Only Option Is To Reset The CMOS Following The Instructions On The Manual,

C - After ( B ) He Has To Completely Reconfigure The BIOS Setup, Again.

Cheers.

Did all the steps as advised.
On start-up, Desktop goes to Windows 10 straight from the "HDMI no signal" screen.
If I shut down by using Shift + Shut Down and on Start-up press DEL key repeatedly, the PC does nothing (does not go to Windows and it does not go to BIOS).

If you want me to do anything else, please tell me.
