Can not boot into BIOS/UEFI on ASUS laptop.

I just bought a generic laptop ASUS R417NA. I am trying to remove windows 10. However so far I was unable to get into BIOS or UEFI. I tried to disable pretty much every windows boot related feature (fast and hybrid boot) and pressing/tapping f2, shift, f10, del, f12 during cold boot like a maniac. I explicitly told windows 10 to boot into UEFI.

No matter what I do windows 10 boots "normally".

    It may be set to use "Fast Boot" which you would then need to disable to get into the BIOS.

    1. Make sure the laptop is turned off. Not in Hibernate or Sleep mode.

    2. Press the power button and hold it down. The system should emit three short beeps from the speaker, or headphones if you have them plugged in.

    3. After the beeps, release the power button 'before' the 4-second shutdown override.

    4. The power button menu should now display.

    5. Press F3 to disable Fast Boot and you should be able to access BIOS now.

    To enable Fast Boot:

    1. When the laptop boots up, enter the BIOS setup by pressing "F2".
    2. Now go to the "Boot Configuration menu".
    3. Choose the "Enable Fast Boot".
    4. Press F10 to save the changes and exit.
