I had the same issue after updating the bios. Pressing F8 opens the boot options menu. From there if you select "Enter Setup" you should get into the bios.

I also re-updated the bios and the delete key is working again.

^To all most of the time it's 1 of 2 reasons :
1. Using a non-USB 2.0 port (use the BLACK USB 2.0 @ I/O
2. Incompatible USB Keyboard (try a different Keyboard or a PS/2 Keyboard).

I had this same problem before installing anything. The first time I cleared the RTC Ram and I was good. The problem surfaced after I changed the boot priority under the simple BIOS - didn't do anything else. The CLRTC did the trick but after setting up a Raid array on the Marvell Controller the problem surfaced again.

I did manage to get into the BIOS twice by continuing to hit the delete/f1 key out of say 50 attempts.....on the second entry into Bios I disabled the speed posting and delayed it by 5 seconds...haven't had a problem since but it doesn't seem like a good option. I'm thinking about doing the Bios update....I'm on 1104 I think it is.

There are a lot of software bugs on this boards still it seems. My first was the system wasn't booting up....seems like the HX650 Corsair wasn't enough even though I think it should have been.....the latest problem was a TCP/IP issue with the LAN....updating to the latest driver fixed the problem....still taking the kinks out.
