I want to know where the boot menu is on my ASUS laptop. Can anyone tell me where to find it or where to find my BIOS settings? I am having trouble booting my computer to ubuntu with a USB.

Did you even read the two answers you got to this question? Those two basically explain how to get to it. –  Thomas W. Sep 11 '13 at 2:12

Depends of model but normally you access the BIOS using:

  • F1
  • F2
  • F10
  • Delete
  • F12
  • F8

You should check when you boot for the exact key.

Depending on the model of you machine, you could plug in the USB, to boot from it, during the post press the F12 key and see if you get an option to select the USB drive.

Another way is to press Esc key at the ASUS splash screen. A popup menu will appear with all the devices that can potentially be used for booting, select the desired device and press Enter. (you may have to hold the Esc key)
