HP Spectre x360 How do I get into the BIOS?

My HP Spectre x360 boots really fast and I can't figure out how to access the BIOS screen?

You should hit Esc + F10 at the start of the boot sequence.

On HP Spectre X360 15-bl012dx (2017 15-inch): Hold esc during boot. A menu appears. Press F10 to enter BIOS setup.

  • 1 Thanks. Many tutorials show F10 , F12 but the newer models seem to prefer Esc –  tresf Apr 1, 2020 at 18:19

You have to hit F9 during bootup. If you miss the right point, shut your laptop off, begin pressing the F9 key continously and then start your laptop. You can't miss it that way.

  • 1 I could not get the BIOS to appear reliably using F9 . Esc + F10 seems to be the most reliable way. –  Pete Jul 21, 2015 at 5:17
  • same here. should use ESC + F10 –  Squirrel Jan 16, 2016 at 1:46

Pressing F9 multiple times really fast at start up will get you to a boot menu, (Just holding down the F9 key won't work) once in that boot menu press F10 and that will get you to the main BIOS screen.

From my experience Press F2 repeatedly or F6 is also accepted by some HP machines. HP Support F10, F2, F12, F1, or DEL. from HP Store dot com
