That's irrelevant. Entering the BIOS setup program has nothing to do
with Windows, or what version of it you are running. In fact you have
to do this before Windows even starts to boot.

You are probably missing the correct time to press it, perhaps
starting too late. Press it continually (tap it twice a second or so),
and start pressing it as soon as you power on.
If that fails, you apparently have a hardware issue, either with the
keyboard or the motherboard.
