Acer Aspire V5 571 - can't access BIOS setup after installing Linux Mint

bdimitrybdimitry Posts: 2Member

 In the the BIOS setup I've changed from UEFI to Legacy mode and have reordered the sequence to 1.DVD 2.HD 3.Acer Mananger. The original order was: 1. Acer Manger; 2. HD 3. DVD. I've installed Linux Mint 32-bit version without any problems.

Now, I want uninstall it  and install 64-bit version, but the computer doesn't pickup DVD as a start boot device. I've tried to access the BIOS setup but no luck. It looks like the original boot sequence is  back.

When I turn on the comp, the Acer splash screen is displayed for sec or two. I press the F2 key and nothing happens. I've also tried other F keys and also the Delete key with no luck. If I press the Esc key at the start I get the GRUB loader.

 

How do I access the BIOS setup?
