Issue:
Acer Aspire V3-471G  – After trying out Windows 10 Technical Preview, i wanted to installed Windows 7. But System doesn’t response to F2 key at boot for me to change the boot sequence (to boot to DVD drive).

3) Click on Troubleshoot

4) Click on Advanced options
Jpeg

5) Click on Startup Settings

7) System reboot.
Now i am able to press F2 to access BIOS.

Above steps also workable for Windows 8.
