Hi @calmes , To enter the BIOS menu press the F2 key after the POST finishes and ''before'' Windows starts. If you miss the chance to do this, turn off the laptop by holding the Power button until it shuts down and then try again If this doesn't work and you are running Win 8.1 or 10, turn OFF the Fast Startup option in Win 8.1 or 10. Here is a [https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4189-turn-off-fast-startup-windows-10-a.html|link] that describes how to turn it off. (Step 7 in the guide) Once it has been turned off, shutdown the laptop in the normal way. Do NOT select restart. Turn it off and when it has completely shutdown, then start it again and try the F2 key to enter BIOS.
