As the title says, I've been trying for hours to get into the BIOS of my Lenovo PC and I simply can't.
After searching online a bit, I came across a post that said (for an Intel motherboard) that the keyboard and mouse aren't recognized by the BIOS as they are USB devices and one must go into the BIOS and enable USB devices to be booted up before Windows... However, without being able to get into the BIOS I cannot achieve this stupid task that shouldn't even need to be.
I've tried every combination of keys, with and without the Fn key. What brings me to the final conclusion that my keyboard isn't even recognized is the simple fact that popping a Windows disc into the machine and "pressing any key to continue" doesn't work, it times out and boots to the current Windows version.
I've thought of using a PS/2 Keyboard but this Lenovo PC doesn't even have PS/2 connectors on it, so that idea had to be scrapped.
The system is a ThinkCentre M82 with Windows 7 64-Bit on it. The manual itself says to use F1 at POST and when I see the Lenovo logo, it says to press Enter to interupt boot, I've hammered the Enter key and the F1 key. Nothing, absolutely zilch.

If you are using wireless keyboard, use a wired USB keyboard.
