    BIOS Startup Screen gone since 10 upgrade

    When running windows 7, for the first few seconds upon booting my laptop, it would display a startup message,

    "Press ESC for boot selection, F2 for setup, etc......."

    Now, nothing. I cannot choose to enter setup, BIOS, get to ESC for a boot selection screen in case I might want to boot from a flash drive or a floppy just once.

    I cannot figure out how to get it back either.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Click on restart from the power icon instead of shutdown.


    Hold down shift key when you click shutdown.


    Turn off fast startup in Windows.

    The "problem" is that with fast startup enabled, when you just click shutdown the computer doesn't actually shutdown. It enters more of a hibernation state and doesn't give control back 100% to bios.

    Restart performs a complete shutdown before rebooting - holding down shift when clicking shutdown overrides the fast startup - and turning of fast startup permanently disables fast startup and every shutdown is a complete shutdown.
