ThinkCentre E73 SFF - Can't access BIOS?

2016-12-25, 21:16 PM

Hi there,

 

I recently bought a Lenovo Thinkcentre E73 SFF, which had Windows 10 installed in it. I decided that I wanted to installed Windows 7 instead of using Windows 10. I decided to go into the BIOS to change the boot priority so that my Windows 7 installation drive had priority over the pre-existing boot drive. In the process, I also recall disabling "Fast Boot", as the PC kept skipping the post screen every time I booted up. It continued to do that even when I was in Windows 10, but I've now got Windows 7 installed, but I cannot find any way to access the BIOS of the motherboard. Can anybody advise on how I'd go about getting into the motherboard BIOS?

 

TLDR - I've installed Windows 7 in place of Windows 10, but I cannot get into the BIOS as the computer is forever skipping the post screen on bootup. Does anybody know about how I'd be able to get into the motherboard BIOS?

 

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I wish you all a Merry Christmas!!! :)

Solved! See the solution

Repeatedly hit F1.   Although if you have a wireless keyboard, I recommend you connect and use a wired one, as wireless can be too slow to come online for you to break into the BIOS setup.

Thank you!

Do you also happen to know any way of disabling the really annoying beep the system initially makes on start up? :)
