Default what f-key to select sata drive to boot from

OK, I was hoping to hold off on installing Vista a little bit longer but I've been given access to the Microsoft Games for windows- Live beta that requires Vista.

Not a big deal, as I have a fresh copy of Vista just waiting to be opened. I've installed this on an extra SATA drive because I know there is a way to select what drive you wish to boot from, when you start your PC. (without going into your bois)

However I have forgotten what key to press during bootup and for the life of me can not find my MB manual. I thought it was F11 but that does not seem to work.

I have an EVGA 680i board, any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

found my answer,

press esc key then if you're like me and have more then one hard drive, select the hard drive then press the + key to bring up a list of hard drives to boot from.
