assuming you know F2 is the correct key you can press *and hold* it immediately after pressing power key

 del and f1 are also used by sony - depending on the model - so try those too

You might also remove the drive temporarily and then go into setup and see if you can set the amount of time it waits for input.. usualy 0-3 seconds.. change it to 10..  then reinstall the SSD. Would need your model # to see exactly your options.

maybe the easiest solution is putting the old drive in again, - then boot up and change the BIOS settings

then reconnect the SSD drive
