How to change the boot sequence in setup - HP Vectra VL600

Hi
Im trying to change the boot sequence on the above PC. It says to hit F2 to enter setup but all I can do is view a page giving a breif description of the BIOS settings. There are no F keys displayed to adjust anything, only thing it says at the bottom of the screen is pause to read and hit any key to continue. If i try to hit any key or F key it just carrys on booting up normally. I've never had this problem on any other PC.
Any suggestions ??

You need to press F8 to get into the boot menu: http://www-pc.uni-regensburg.de/hardware/PC/HP/VL600/INFO/661vm0272en.pdf (page 40)

u need to use the function key on the  top row of yr keyboard (F1 --  F12)
tap the F8 key repeatedly when u power up the computer.
use the arrow keys on yr keyboard to navigate the menu and the pagup/pagedown or ENTER to change the settings.

I think he's saying that the BIOS does not give the option to change the boot order of the drives.  If that's the case, you should update the BIOS to the latest version and hope that they improved the functionality.

The add on keyboard had a F key disabler and it defaulted too off on startup, everybodies right.
