I've set a supervisor password on a Tecra A10 laptop, but now I can't choose the boot device or enter the BIOS as supervisor. I do know the supervisor password however I don't get the prompt to enter it. To access the BIOS with the supervisor user do you have to use a different keyboard shortcut on boot?

The problem has been solved. You need to hold the Insert key down while powering the laptop on. You will then get prompted for the supervisor password. –  MHrappstead Sep 28 '11 at 18:16
