BIOS and Bluetooth Keyboard

I can not access the BIOS with my Logitech Bluetooth keyboard connected but I can with wireless.

Anyone has a fix for this? There are Bluetooth dongles out there that has the Bluetooth stack integrated but haven't tried it.. 

Also how do I disable 2 step authentication logging into this forum, it does it every time and is annoying!!

Many wireless keyboards and mice from Logitech supported Bluetooth alongside the 2.4 GHz Unifying technology.  You can search for keyboard/mouse products with specifications connectivity Bluetooth + Unifying USB receiver.  They should work with accessing BIOS and bluetooth connectivity in Windows.

About 2 steps authentication log in, I think it's here to stay as the requirement was applied to ALL sites and customers, not just for this community users.

About point 2, maybe they should do like everybody else is doing 

"press here if you consider logging from this computer to be trusted" to not have 2FA always engaged with confirmed safe sources.

This way is actually just a big annoyance ( anyway this is OT and I will shut up )

@Chino de Oro​ So what you are saying is I still need the Unifying USB receiver installed? with it installed it works fine but if the keyboard is connected to Bluetooth, I can not enter BIOS F2.

Some one mentions I need a Bluetooth dongle with HID Proxy and Bluetooth stack installed on the dongle.

boot - Use a Bluetooth keyboard to access/edit the BIOS - Super User

The unifying receiver connects the keyboard to both signals, bluetooth (logitech) and 2.4 Ghz radio.
