For the Eee PC, it's F2.
I dont own a B204, so I cannot be certain that it is the same.

The pdf(U4635) manual says press F2 repeatedly during bootup.The booklet U4244 has no information.
The asus wireless keyboard and a microsoft wired keyboard 600 does not work.I still cannot access the bios menu.Everest report its version 0602(which is the latest one).I can see the Eee box logo and then its goes to xp load.

Madsharpei,

I admit it is not very clean, but this is how I got access:

1. After you have booted the eeeBox, force a power-off by pressing AND HOLDING the power button.
2. When fully powered off, power on again. You then seen the typical BIOS/system info screen.
3. To access the BIOS on a B204, you need to use the DEL key.

This is the only way I managed to get it.

I just thought that I'd add the there isn't much to configure in the BIOS. The reason I wanted to get in is to change the boot order, but I found out that the HDD was only the third boot device. Fortunately, after the little trick above, I was able to boot from CD.

I appears to me as if the Windows booting is somehow cached. I tried unplugging the power for a minute or so, but I guess this doesn't really affect the system considering the internal battery.

Hope this helps.


TT

This is the best method i found that works on the B204

Turn on the eee box and then immediately hold down F2 and then hold down the following keys

for BIOS menu - Delete

for Boot device menu - F8

for Asus Recovery System - F9
