Because the Dell Venue 8 and 11 tablets like the 7130 and 7130 have no keyboards you need to use a button combination to gain access to the BIOS. That order is:
- Power up the tablet from being powered off – reboot does not seem to work
- Press and HOLD the volume down button (second silver button from the top on the left side) until the DELL logo screen shows ENTERING BIOS in tiny letters in the top right corner.
- If you see the Windows ‘rolling dots’, you have missed it so power down and start again.
You will then be able to get into your Venue 11 or 8’s uEFI BIOS.
Note that if you have an Atom Based Dell Venue 11 you CAN connect a keyboard to the USB port on the device or dock and press F12 to access the BIOS.
I have also found that I have to go into the Venue BIOS and then EXIT if I want to PXE boot by pressing F12 on boot.
