    I assume the f11 should be pressed during startup to select the USB as the boot device. My new Z83-4 doesn't respond to f11 although it stops Windows from loading and just hangs. I tried DEL to see if that would bring up the bios but that didn't work either. What should I do now?

    Have you tried ESC ?

    Same result. Seems to just stop the loading completely.

    I had another go at doing the update from 1607 to 1803 and this time it worked! It was my 4th or 5th attempt and the only thing I think I did differently was I started the update via the Settings>Update & Security dialog. C Drive started with 8.70Gb showing free in Windows Explorer and with 1803 listed as the installed version, it says 3.84Gb is available which I worry is barely usable.
    I can see some applications (Xbox, Win Media Player, Paint 3D, Movies & TV, Groove Music + a couple of others) that I won't need but I think maybe I should make a system image onto an external drive before I risk doing anything that might upset things. Maybe my further questions should be in a different part of the forum, too?

    I would still be grateful to know how to change the boot device or get into the bios as I can't see if I even have the latest version.

    Which type of keyboard are you using?

    Started with a Logitech Wireless Combo MK700/MK710 and then tried a wired Microsoft Keyboard 600 with a basic optical mouse v2 in case the first setup was missing the startup window in some way. The wired setup is connected now.

    Then I don't see why you can't access the BIOS! (n)

    Have you been continuously tapping ESC or just pressing or pressing and holdng?
    Usually tapping continuously is required!

    Tapping. I really can't understand it either. I'll make a video and maybe you can see what I'm doing wrong! Stand by...

    I sent it to support@minix - obviously wrong. Sorry. Seems like I can't post a link as I don't have enough likes or upload the file because it's too big.

    Unfortunately the link doesn't work. Download starts, but every time it stops at the same percentage. I tried also with a download manager, but at 99% it stops. No way. Is it possible to do something please? Thank you very much

    Thanks for the quick response Villa, but I always have the same problem.
    I tried DownThemAll! as you suggested, but at 99% and a second at the end, the download stops. I saw the graphic of the downloaded data and the problem is at about 1/3 of the zip file and just in few bits.
    I also tried to open the partial file, but the problem is in Install.swm file that unfortunately is the main.
    Please I need an help, an alternative link if it's possible.
    Thanks a lot and sorry for the bothering
