    ...SO have you gotten to BIOS yet?

    Try hammering DEL-key, F1-key and F2-key. Try each key separately 3-5 times in a row after you selected reboot in Windows.

    Hit DEL to enter SETUP! It clearly says that.

    If you want to go to Boot Menu to override boot device a single time then press F11

    This blog from AMI should be relevant to your system.
    https://ami.com/en/tech-blog/top-thr...fi-bios-setup/

    Your screenshot shows '...DEL to run Setup'. Sometimes the 'windows of opportunity' can be very short. Try hitting DEL repeatedly, starting before you see that screen.

    You're not using a wireless keyboard are you? If so, it may not work until the OS has booted. Try with a wired keyboard if possible.

    Exactly as Bree says!

    Most likely you need a PS/2 wired keyboard! USB might NOT work, as you can also see that USB controllers are initialized during POST/BOOT...

    Yes, the screenshot clearly says 'initializing USB controllers . .' if it then goes on to say a few more things before booting there's an outside chance a USB keyboard may work in the brief time available. Otherwise a PS/2 keyboard would be the only option.

    thanks for all the suggestions guys, i finally managed to get into the bios, i could only do it by removing the motherboard battery. and even when pressed the delete key it didn't go into setup.
