For this particular laptop, how do you access the boot menu when booting?

Fn + F2 keys get me to the UEFI Config screen, but what about the boot menu itself? Is it F8, F10, or F12?

Also, when it comes to booting non-UEFI CD/DVDs, do I have to disable both Secure Boot and UEFI Mode, and then enable Legacy Mode?
 
The computer should actually tell you, on startup, what key/keys to push. It will be on the lower right or left of the screen when it is going through the start sequence.

However, it may be turned off if "Fast Boot" is activated. Which makes access to BIOS impossible until that it turned off.

You will need to disable "Fast Boot" from the power button menu. The power button can be used if you encounter Fast Boot problems.

1. Make sure the laptop is turned off. Not in Hibernate or Sleep mode.

2. Press the power button and hold it down. The system should emit three short beeps from the speaker, or headphones if you have them plugged in.

3. After the beeps, release the power button 'before' the 4-second shutdown override.

4. The power button menu should now display.

5. Press F3 to disable Fast Boot and you should be able to access BIOS now.

To enable Fast Boot:

1. When the laptop boots up, enter the BIOS setup by pressing "F2".
2. Now go to the "Boot Configuration menu".
3. Choose the "Enable Fast Boot".
4. Press F10 to save the changes and exit.
