    Good day, I am trying to reboot from USB (Ubuntu installation), I cannot find the key to press to get to the reboot options. I tried F1 to F12 and Esc. Nothing works, it still go direct to Windows. Any hint? thank you, Francis

    Hello, @whatamidoinghere ,

    Hold down the VOLUME DOWN key as you power on the Surface.

    Aha! Some Surface models use Volume Up and some Down, depending upon whether the controls are on the top or side of the screen.

    Glad you found it.
