Default CMstorm quickfire tk keyboard

Does anyone have this keyboard? or something close to it layout?

I have no idea how I can get into the bios with the keyboard, I hit the del keys, but don't seem to work.

wait, so your keyboard works in windows or not?
if yes, its simply figuring out what keys activate the bios.
If you are sure its the del key then spam it from the time you boot.

Keyboard works without problem in windows. The layout on the keyboard is a little weird. compacted as you can see.

Damn.. dont think i can help you anymore. Try using a serial port adapter (if you have one) or try switching to legacy 6 key nkro.

**** yea, Anyways yea I have an Asus Maximus V Formula mb, it have a option to disable num lock at boot up. Even tried the legacy 6 key nkro, no good. I can do ctrl alt del in windows just fine. Emailed CM support, let see what they can come up with

have you tried NOT using that bios option and just manually turning off numlock?

i'm using asus p8z77-i deluxe.

sequence of events:
system fans turn on, keyboard is off
keyboard turns on, numpad is enabled
frantically try to turn off numpad
after a couple of taps, the numpad light finally goes off and then i spam delete
asus logo appears on the screen with instructions
numpad light turns back on
goes into UEFI



anyhows, GL!
