What does everything is USB mean?
If the keyboard is changed to PS2 then the tapping of the correct F key or combination of keys should get you to the bios or the setup screen whichever it is called on your system. They are the same thing just some systems call it bios and others call it setup.

I found your manual HERE and you are right there are no PS2 connectors. Seeing that tapping the key to enter the Setup or Bios is not working, I highly suspect the USB keyboard is not initializing on bootup.
Now you stated these are USB but wireless so that may have something to do with it. Do you have a wired USB keyboard you could plug in and try? The wireless may be the issue that is not initializing correctly and a wired keyboard may allow you to enter the bios]setup area then. :)
