Try restarting the computer and pumping the F2 key up and down immediately until the computer goes into the bios screen. In there you can search for the boot menu and select the proper hard drive to boot up from that has Windows on it.

Please reply and let me know if that works for you or if you have any questions. Then we can go to the next step if needed.

Regards,
