How can I access my BIOS settings on a Acer Aspire One D257?

OK so i just installed windows 8 developer preview on my Acer Aspire One D257. Now I want to make my computer boot from its USB drive, I tried restarting the PC several times pressing all keys that should work, like e.g; Del, Esc, F1, F2, F5, F8, F10, F12 (But not at the same time). None of these worked for me so I wondered if there were any downloads that let me access the BIOS settings (I am using a netbook). Any help??

Answer

- Acer uses F12 on most of its systems, but you often need to go into the BIOS to enable it, usually F2 or ESC should work. Another option could be Function + ESC.
