If you are sure that you have tried the boot options in the BIOS, i cannot help you.
The Intel logo: Look somewhere in the the Advanced BIOS Features for something like "Full Screen Logo".
also you can try to find the key that will take you too the boot menu after post i think it would be something like the ESC key but if it is a new system then your friend should still have the Manuel so check for it in there
