Friend brings over a Windows 8 all in one laptop.
Friend: Can you fix my laptop
Me: I'm a programmer
Friend: I thought you worked with computers.
Me: I do... but I'm not tech support
Friend: Please?
Me: (reluctantly) Fine.
*many hours later after attempting to get the PC to boot from a USB. WHY DOES THIS PC NOT HAVE A KEY TO ENTER THE GOD DAMNED BOOT MENU AND HAS NO BOOT ORDER SELECTION?????!*
Friend: Have you fixed it?
Me: No
Friend: You suck at computers
Me: ....

Never spoke to him again.

    @daemonAD It might have it, but that doesn't help me. There was no option to turn it off in BIOS.

    In my case it was that Escape brought up the menu... but you had to hold it as the computer was booting...

    Usually, I bash F1, F12, F10, Del, ESC and the power button repeatedly. that usually brings the boot menu up.
