Hi abdalla_eliwa


Welcome to the COmmunity FOrums. 


If FN + F2 on restart would not allow you to get in the BIOS screen, fully shut down the computer.

While it is off, use a paper clip to insert on the Novo pin hole as this would also automatically turn on the machine. Novo Menu would offer BIOS set up.


How can I start the BIOS setup utility? (page28)
To start the BIOS setup utility:
1 Shut down the computer.
2 Press the Novo button (item8 page 7) and then select BIOS Setup.


Hope this help answer your query.

If you don't want to use a paperclip and run windows 10 then you can reboot the computer via windows which restarts the computer and goes to the bios.


I had to do this to turn on virtualization should I could get Oracle virtualbox and vmware working for my computing course.
