BIOS Menu

Jump to solution

Hello Dell Community,

I recently purchased the Dell 8910 with the 1TB hard drive. I successfully cloned and installed a 500GB Samsung SSD. Now I'm not seeing the BIOS menu screen. The system boots up fine (and fast). I would like to get into the BIOS however. Could someone point me to a solution? Thank you kindly!

Jim H.

You have to be really FAST to press F2 as soon as you power the PC on, otherwise you miss the "window" to get into BIOS setup, especially with an SSD boot drive.

If you are on Win 10,  "Fast Startup" is probably enabled and when that is enabled it will by pass the BIOS on power up.  If you just do a "Restart" you can access the BIOS.  

Disable Fast Start, in power settings as you have an SSD and it will boot "fast" anyway.
