    Question F2 and F9 not working when booting

    What is the trick to use F2 (bios) and F9 (recovery) at boot up? No matter when I press them nor how often I always boot into windows.

    Thanks

    Check that your keyboard is properly docked.

    I do a restart and as soon as the screen goes black after shut down, I start continuously hitting the function key about twice a second.

    I had a similar problem, though, after updating the BIOS to v220. The problem seemed to fix itself after I turned off the computer and waited an hour or so. Can't say what really fixed it...

    I've seen that work one time for another user as well. Worth a try.

    Maybe because of locked (UEFI) BIOS.

    After multiple attempts, F9 finally works for me at cold boot. The trick is to hit F9 furiously at a very fast pace while pressing the Power button. Since BIOS is minimal for these machines, the time period during which it looks for F9 is really short. By the time the orange LED by the camera is lit, it's ready to load Windows.
