Default F11 & F12 keys - 05-06-2010, 08:42 PM

Noob here. What combination of keys do I need to use to make F11&12 work? I'd like to open the BOIS screen. Or is there somewhere else I can look to find out my minis Bois. This really has to do with battery issues. I did read the the huge thread and do remember seeing something in there, but I wasn't up to it again. Thanks

The Mini 9 uses 2 and 0 to access the BIOS setup and boot menus, respectively. I think the necessary keys are displayed during the Dell splash screen.

As for F11 and F12, in all but the earliest BIOS versions, Fn+Z is F11 and Fn+X is F12

Right - 2 opens the BIOS setup menu, 0 is the boot device selector screen (you can also get into setup from that.)
