Boot into bios for surface running windows rt

I have a surface running Windows RT. When I try to boot it up, it says some windows files are bad. I went to the surface site on MS and downloaded windows from there and burned a usb iso but I cannot get into the bios or get it to boot from the usb. I have tried holding the power and both volume up and volume down. Oh and if I reboot by pressing the windows key when I get that error message it asks for the bitlocker key which the owner never said he set up. Thanks

Thanks that's exactly the problem I'm having unfortunately it was never answered in this thread any suggestions?
it seems that you can boot it, so can you boot it to where you can select option on restoring to factory defaults or anything.
try looking at these helps from MS, this will offer something to try.
This is what Google says:

To load the UEFI firmware settings menu:
  • Shut down your Surface.
  • Press and hold the volume-up button on your Surface and at the same time, press and release the power button.
  • When you see the Surface logo, release the volume-up button. The UEFI menu will display within a few seconds.
Had to take it into the microsoft store and they were able to reinstall.
