I have a Lenovo G500s laptop which comes with FreeDOS installed. I want to install Windows, but I am not able to enter the boot menu so I can boot from a DVD.
I have tried keys like F1, F2, F9, F12, Delete, etc.
How can I get to the boot menu?

Use F12 for Bootmenu. Please remember press the Fn+F12 to make it work.
If all do not work, make sure your keyboard is functional or try a external USB keyboard to check.
To install Windows - insert Windwows DVD - Boot from disk - install as instructed
On the Lenovo G500S you will have to push the little button next to the power button while the laptop is turned off or asleep, to enter the BIOS and boot menu. You can change the boot sequence by entering the BIOS and in there make the dvd-player the first boot device.
Some Lenovo laptops have a second button next to the power button. Instead of pressing the function keys you actually have to just press the second button which has a u-turn arrow on it; it will give you a list of options (Bios, Boot menu, normal boot). I was also trying to press
F10 and also trying with the
FN button without success.
