Hi:

 

Welcome to the HP support forum.

 

I believe on these new W8 BIOS's, you need to tap the ESC key right at the beginning of the HP welcome screen to get a menu of options.

 

One of the options should be a F10 option to enter the BIOS.

 

Then you hit the F10 key at that point.

On my HP Pavilion g6 laptop (originally Windows 7, now running Windows 10) I had to first power off completely, then 'hold down' the [Esc] key, while then pressing the power button.

 

Tapping the Esc key after power on did not work for me.

 

You may have to try more than once.

 

The resulting menu is:

 

Startup Menu

F1 System Information

F2 System Diagnostics

F9 Boot Device Options

F10 BIOS Setup

F11 System Recovery

F12 Network Boot
