Hmm...I see, must be talking about this one.

I guess I never bothered to use it, since if it POSTS, there's no need to read what's there.

Every PC I ever used, the A90 being the only exception, has a Pause/Break button in the upper right area of the keyboard. Again, without exception, pressing this button will freeze the post process at any point up to the point where Windows starts to load. It sometimes proves useful as seeing the post text can be helpful when troubleshooting some problems.

I have been home building my PCs since the IBM XT days circa 1985 and I upgrade to a new mobo every year or so. The ability to pause the post process prior to Windows starting has not only applied to virtually everyone of my homebuilt units but also to all the laptops and retail PCs I have used. This accounts for a lot of PCs so I was surprised not to see the pause/Break key on the A90.
