I just purchased a Sony 850 EVO 250GB SSD to replace this 80GB HDD, I bought the computer for 100 bucks, and I'm pretty sure the guy just took the stock HDD and gave me its backup. Anyway, all I have is a Microsoft 3000 wireless keyboard and mouse combo, with a USB adapter. I plan on cloning the HDD to the SSD and changing the primary drive to the SSD, running my Windows 8 64-bit operating system from the SSD and keeping strictly media files on the HDD.
The problem is I cannot access the BIOS. First of all the motherboard is sketchy at best, no info for it except for other users asking for info on it when consulting the internet. Also, there is no display for which key or key combination initiates BIOS, just a Lenovo splash screen, immediately proceeded with a beep and Windows boot. The motherboard is "Mahobay" on a Lenovo K410 desktop, and it comes with the stock CPU as well, an Intel i3-2130 3.4 GHz.
I've tried just about every USB port, as I can't decipher if they are all 3.0 or 2.0 or not, none seem to register the keyboard before the Windows boot, as I read this may cause errors when trying to enter BIOS with a USB keyboard. I've also tried holding the power button from off to on. This has not helped, simply cycled the power loop from off to on to off. The same with pressing the F2 key, tried Del, and tried Ctrl+Alt+Ins, to no avail. I never had the owner's manual, but even a search on the internet has yet to yield a consistent answer, so I might just not know the keyboard combination.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'd seriously hate having to spend twenty bucks on a ps2 keyboard I would never use again just to get this to be my primary drive.
