How to change BIOS boot screen timeout or access key

HP ENVY x360 Convertible 15m-cp0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The BIOS boot access screen times out too fast, how can I change it?

 

The Esc key is unusual for BIOS access, can it be changed?

Check in BIOS if you have the following options and you can try changing the Boot Timeout time

  1. In the BIOS screen, go to Setup Menu > Boot Maintenance Manager or System Configuration Menu > Advanced Boot Options.

  2. Change the System Boot Timeout setting by entering the number of seconds you want the BIOS to pause.
    System Boot Timeout

Keep me posted 😊

How to change BIOS boot screen timeout or access key

Hello KrazyToad, no I do not have that option in BIOS, the only timeout is for "Post boot hotkey" to select a boot option which is set to 0 to prevent it from timing out.

 

How did you get that screenshot of BIOS?????

Since the value is already 0 for the Post Boot option, I suggest you try increasing it and check if that affects the post boot option

Finally got around to changing the Post Boot option and it did work; it changes in 5 second intervals.

 

Thanks KrazyToad
