Right Click

Quite Easy

To get into the Bios is simple....

Right click VM->Power->Power to Bios...

not sure how to delay it though.
If pressing "F2" doesn't help, you can try changing the settings of the VM, in the Options tab, under "Power", enable "enter full screen mode after powering on". Then press "F2" when the VM starts.

It looks like you are using Workstation, in which case my answer above is correct, if you are using any other vmware environment then check out this page

To be actually Correct:-

Select VM --> Power --> Power On to BIOS

Power On to BIOS
will boot the VM, and enter the BIOS setup.

My version of VMware Workstation, does not have a Delay function, as per VMware vSphere. But if you cannot hit F2 or Escape to get into the BIOS, the Power On to BIOS function should suffice.
