In order to enter the bios, you will have to press the ESC button the second the Advent logo appears.

If you press the F11 key when the Advent logo appears, you will get the multiboot menu, allowing you to boot from other devices such as a USB-DVD/CD drive. If you want to boot from a USB-HD, you will have to change the priority in the BIOS, as it won't show up in the boot menu.

If you cannot get back into the BIOS set up to repair a bad setting, there are a couple of ways to clear your CMOS.
First unplug the system from the AC power.
Then depending on your system you either move the CMOS jumper from the stand by pins to the clear pins for a few moments and return it, or remove the CMOS battery, press the power button a few times, and then replace the battery. (A few motherboards now have a clear CMOS button but I doubt yours has this.)
Then you need to go into your BIOS set up, Reset Defaults, and then manually set your time, date, and check your CPU, Memory, Hard drive, and boot order (possibly others), Save and Exit.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If I understand correctly what you did it was to turn off legacy USB in bios. Having done that your USB keyboard will only work off operating system drivers. The only way to get back into bios is to attach a PS/2 keyboard.

That of course would work also and if you have one available (most of us do), it will be easier.
