Hi:

 

Turn on the PC.

 

Immediately press/tap the ESC key to get the menu of options.

 

Select the F10 setup option and press the enter key.

 

That should get you into the BIOS.

 

You can also select the one time boot options menu without the need to change the boot order in the BIOS.

 

Turn on the PC.

 

Immediately press/tap the ESC key to get the menu of options.

 

Select the F9 boot options menu, and from that, select the device you want to boot from and press the enter key.
