Hi,

 

It can start pretty quickly :generic:

 

Try the following method.

 

Hold down the left Shift key as you click on Shutdown to temporarily prevent hybrid boot.

 

Leave the notebook shutdown for 10 seconds.

 

Start tapping the esc key continuously as soon as you press the power button ( don't wait for the prompt ) and see if this will access the Startup menu - if it does, select f10 to enter the Bios Menu.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

You can change the default action as follows.

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  Select the Bios option ( f10 ), then make the change shown in the document on the following link.
