    Pop!_OS is designed to take over and not allow users to make many changes. As such it does try to disable entry into the BIOS by setting the timeout to 0 seconds. You should still be able to get there though by pressing and holding the F2 key while turning on the computer. It might take a few tries, but you can usually get in eventually...
