When I press the ThinkVantage button during startup, I don't get an option that allows me to Start Setup Utility. Instead, the screen flashes very briefly, then a message displays "Windows is loading files..." and then I get System Recovery Options.
My guess is that the "screen flash" is where I would have the option to view/change BIOS settings, but it goes by almost instantaneously, with no option to make any selection.
Any thoughts? I appreciate any help.

It should work for either cold boot or warm boot.
The window of time to press the F1 key is small, so it's easy to miss.
When I need to enter BIOS setup menu, I press F1 button repeatedly, at a rate of around twice per second.
