Unable to access boot menu

Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Hello everyone,

I am unable to access the boot menu on my HP Pavillion laptop. I tried pressing ESC key after Power on and also through PC settings but none of it helped .  Pressing ESC key just shows "ESC...pause startup" message but didn't got to the boot menu. And if I stop pressing it , it just loads OS.

Hey @ameyCY,


Welcome to the HP Forums!

I read about your HP Pavilion  Notebook and not able to go to the Boot menu. If you try F9. this should help you out.


Please get back to me how this goes.
