Missing boot track on VMware virtual disk

I have installed SCO OSR 5.0.6 onto a vmware server system but did not install a boot track. Consequently, all I get is a '-' prompt on attempted boot.  How to get the boot  track on the virtual disk? I could do it from the cd-rom, but the function keys that control boot order, <ESC>, <F2>, don't work.
Thanks,

Never mind, I found the answer:
When the startup screen is starting - i.e. asking for the keypress to pick the boot order - you have to quickly left click the mouse into the opening screen and then the keys work to select the boot order.
