Maybe you need to create a partition first (even if only a single partition). See click here

Is the keyboard one with an F lock so that those buttons perform other functions, try checking that the F buttons are locked as soon as you start to boot.

Alternively try using a simple PS2 keyboard if the one you are using is USB
