There are serial UART pins exposed on the MinnowBoard Max, which provides an alternative remote serial console.
(1) Try to connect MinnowBoard Max UART to a host machine with a Serial To USB cable.
(2) Open a terminal (such as Putty our Tera Term) on the host machine and configure it to use the serial port which connects Max with the host.
(3) Remove all storage devices from MinnowBoard Max.
(4)Power on the board, , it should automatically boot to UEFI Shell. Check if you can anything on the terminal you opened.
(5)Under UEFI Shell environment, type "exit" command to enter UEFI BIOS's Setup interface.

Thanks Cal and John.
Cal, as for using the startup.nsh, since my usb is not working, I should probably place this on a sd card? And it will automatically be run when the board boots up? I cant use a keyboard.

It was having some issues with the USB (it showed "set sel for device-initiated u1 failed"). I was debugging it and I was messing around with the firmware settings and I ended up disabling USB. Now, I cant get my usb disks working nor can I change settings on the firmware as keyboards are not working.
