    It is set in the bios not to show the prompt, Hit the right key and it will go into bios. When you get in there will be something like disable setup prompt or something like that, just disable the setting and the next time you boot it should show the prompt.

    Depending on bios they use different keys, most use delete, some F1, some F3. Just take an educated guess and push the keys on start up until you hit the right one.
