Such instructions for BIOS would say "Turn the computer on and start 
hitting the F2 key. If this doesn't work, try the Del key, or maybe some 
other key that may or may not be mentioned briefly in a flashing message 
right after the power comes up. Tap the key fast enough but not too 
fast. If you hear beeping, you've been too fast---force the power off 
and start tapping the keys a little slower. If you see the blue screen 
(but it may be white, or green) see if you can find the menu option 
'Boot' (but it also may be 'Security' or 'Options' or something else). 
Use arrow keys or tabs, or space, or mouse clicks to select it".

There is no reason to believe that the UEFI instructions can be much 
better than those. For some reason, OEMs think that firmware 
customization is a value-adding, distinguishing feature, and go to town 
on it. I have already seen a 3D UEFI interface on one of the new boards.
