XSP 12 cant get into bios or F12 for boot selection

it is the model with normal lid

In Windows, it was showing hard drive full no matter what I deleted it still said H/D full

During start-up, F2   and F12 are ignored.

I ordered an adapter so I could install part and also full Windows in another computer then put Msata back now nothing happens

it will not boot to windows and as before cant get into either bios or F12

I was thinking about removing the cmos battery to reset bios but can't find it.

I read a similar case,  Dell came and replaced M/B  mine is no longer under warranty.

You cannot format in another machine and put back.

BIOS has to be set Secure boot OFF for F12 to work.

Re: XSP 12 cant get into bios or F12 for boot selection

Thanks for the reply

I thought if Windows was installed it would be formatted UEFI so would not need to be  set secure boot off.

unfortunately, I can't get into bios to turn it off If I knew where the battery was I could remove that to reset bios and then I would be able to get in.

When I posted I got an email from Dell asking for express code I put it in now it saying: -   ESC  <Express service code removed>
