I would attempt to locate the manual online (assuming it is a
commercial product).
Some other avenues might be (after a port scan)
-SNMP
-guessing strings (password reuse)

-SMTP
-vulnerabilities
- VRFY (user name guessing)
- Alternate route to bruteforce accounts

-SSH - as mentioned above (be careful of account lockout)

Also just from experience the BIOS access keys I have seen are F1, F2,
F12, Esc, and Del

Prove to peers and potential employers without a doubt that you can actually do a proper penetration test. IACRB CPT and CEPT certs require a full practical examination in order to become certified.
