Solved!

Can' t enter BIOS to change boot order

HP Recommended
Elite 8000 SFF
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I want to change the boot order to allow bootup from iso disks.

Keyboarding F10 at doesn' t bring up the BIOS screen, and the machine just boots into  Win7. 

Any suggestions?

Thanks

@ZL1BNB, welcome to the forum.

 

Try using the Esc key to see if that works.

Turn the computer off.

Disconnect the AC power.

Press the ON/OFF button, to drain any slight "residual" power.

Connect the AC power.

Hold down any key on the keyboard, and then press the ON/OFF button.

Hopefully, you will get a "keyboard error -- stuck key, press <BLAH> to enter BIOS setup".

Press the <BLAH> key.

 

Good luck.

What did work is swapping the usb keyboard and mouse for legacy keyboars and mouse.

Seems like the Win 7 installation was impeding the recognition of the USB devises.
