    Every source that I've read says it's the DEL key to get to the BIOS on a Gigabyte mobo.
    Have you tried rapidly tapping the DEL key as soon as you turn it on, and keep tapping it until it either boots to the BIOS or boots to Windows?

    If that doesn't work, then try another keyboard (and try another keyboard port).

    For the record, I have a Gigabyte MB and I just simply press and hold DEL after turning on the PC and keep doing it till the Setup menu appears. Works for me everytime.

    All kinds

    For legacy (non UEFI) BIOS it doesn't matter which OS or even if an OS is installed, you should be able to access it with it's default key.

    Are you sure you're not meaning Fast Boot -- which is entirely different?
    I have seen numerous reports of issues trying to access the BIOS on boot up with Windows Fast Startup enabled. I don't know if its a UEFI thing or not, just that it does happen. Turn it off and you can then access the BIOS. It appears to be a result of the hybrid sleep mode the PC goes into instead of a full shut down.

    Old post but new reply

    Hello everybody. I know it's an old thread, but this might work for some of you.
    Make sure your keyboard is plugged in an USB 2.0 port and not an USB 3.0 port.
    I do have a logitech G19 with a lot of LED-ligths and I could see that win10 does not recognize it in the early state of booting, but it works like a charm when I use an USB 2.0 port.
    Hope to save a few people from just a little frustration ;O)
