Can't enter BIOS setup with F1 key.

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I've tried installing Mac OS X recently (10.7 Lion on Chameleon 2.1 RC1 16xx with iCloud patch), and the installator had crashed. Now when I boot my ThinkPad I press Enter to view boot options. When I click F1 or F12 ThinkPad not reacts, when I press Enter or Esc it will do what it should do.

 

I've got "CMOS reset" error after restarting after failed attempt to install Mac OS X. I know that sometimes Mac is resetting CMOS (I have one PC with Mac and it works good).

 

I can boot Windows 7, but I can't get to BIOS setup.

 

I've had supervisor password (I remember it Smiley Wink), maybe it's the problem.

 

djmati11,

Sorry for my English.

 

EDIT: I've got:

@djmati11,

Try holding Fn then only press F1 and see if you can boot into BIOS.
