Computer booting up straight to Windows help

So, I have a gateway computer from 2006. The model is GATEWAY GT5432 and it came with Windows Vista. So around 2010 I decided to bring it to a computer shop and get it upgraded to Windows 7. After using it for 5 years with no problem I decided to upgrade to Windows 10 I didn't see the download in the taskbar so I created it using cmd from using inputs on another site. My problem is when I upgraded, it turns out my version of Windows was cracked. I have an installation disk but when I restart my PC it restarts straight into Windows and dosnt let me enter BIOS. I really don't understand it. I really need some help. Thanks!

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
What version of windows was a cracked version 7 or 10 ?

If the machine still boots into 10 turn off fast start might make it easier to get into the bios,

Connect your keyboard to a different USB socket, reboot and see if you can get into the BIOS.

If you're using a special keyboard it might not activate until Windows opens, try booting up with a basic keyboard if you have one. You should then be able to get into BIOS.

Hi,
Power the machine down and then unplug it from the power outlet
While unplugged hold down the power button for at least 1 minute (power drain)

Wait another few minutes then plug it back in and power up
See if you can enter the bios continuously tapping the F2 key
Insert the dvd if you make it into the bios and boot to it

If you were last logged into win-10 you might need to insert the win-10 install media because win-10 will be the default os at that shutdown point as I said to turn off fast startup inside win-10 earlier.

Good points about the keyboard is it wireless ?

Thrash, I tried doing the power drain but it didn't work would you like to see a video of it happening? I've never seen anything like it.
