     Well one way to learn more is to figure out which main boards sound 
to you then download the manual for those boards.

     Reminded of this as I try to reseach a laptop BIOS/UEFI on an HP 
computer with the Insyde F.12 BIOS.  It sells with Windows 8 so I know that
it has Secure Boot enabled.  Trying to make sure it can be reset to Legacy

     Good luck with your research on the mainboards.
