Driver Installation Alienware Bios Problem

Hello, I was recently updating my drivers for my x51 from alienware, and after installation it said I needed reboot, so I did, and it shows a black screen saying:

Intel UNDI, PXE2.1 (build 083)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

This Product is covered by one or more of the following patents:
US5,307,459, US5,434,872, US732,094, US6,570,884, US6,115,776 and

Client MAC ADDR: xx xx xx xx xx xx GUID: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_



I'm not going to give my Mac Address our nor my Guid, whatever that is. I have an alienware, I can't open my hardware, and f2 and f12 doesnt work in boot to open my bios editor. I've tried using an hp, corsair, and dell keyboard, neither of them works. Someone tell me how to "Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"?

Why were you changing the drivers on a driver-complete OS? Did you think it's like XP? It's not. Nor should a BIOS be updated due to risk unless there is an applicable reason to do so listed, and a rescue method ready to go.

If you cannot get the F-key to work to access the BIOS to check the SATA controller and Boot order settings which likely changed, then reset the CMOS to see if that helps access the BIOS: How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS) [Easy, 10 to 15 Min]

I don't know which one is the motherboard
Nor do I find any battery of switch in the computer
I also updated driver through the dell website, which the alienware website for drivers redirected me to, using auto service tag detector

Could you give me the system specs of the computer please? I'm looking at what appears to be a CPU cooler on the left and a CPU with no cooler on it on the right. That can't be right.

This is what a desktop CMOS battery looks like it's slightly smaller than a quarter.
