last I heard, unless your BIOS uses a specific F key they won't work until

after the appropriate software starts to load - such as the Windows activated F8 just after Windows starts loading.

Some older systems that are set up for PS2 keyboard and mouse won't recognise a USB keyboard until after the USB becomes active about halfway through the boot process - I've an old P3 that has that happen.
