db2man,

Can you access a Boot Menu from the System Menu?

You need to repeatedly hit F10 after restart to access BIOS on that system, boot menu is F9.

I did not remember if I had tried hitting ESC so this
morning I tried it.

The BIOS did come up. I can take pictures of the menus and get
translations since it is in Spanish.

Yes, from the system menu, F9 brings up the boot menu.

as everyone mentioned, on the new HP and several others, you can press esc
to show the menu of what the Fn keys do. typically on the new HP consumer
PC, F9 is the boot menu, F10, is enter the bios. you can use those keys as
soon as the screen goes from dark black to grey black (you see a subtle
change in the screen, at least with the laptops and AIO).
