Can' t enter BIOS to change boot order

Product Name: Elite 8000 SFF
Operating System: 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

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.

@ZL1BNB, welcome to the forum.

 

Try using the Esc key to see if that works.

Re: Can' t enter BIOS to change boot order

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.
