    Yes, UEFI. Before doing something drastic, you could talk to Acer support to see what they think the issue is. And, I presume you could return to factory fresh to see if the machine aways was lacking the UEFI Firmware Settings selection. Backup your files of course.

    Hi there

    I thought this was a post about No BIOS in the machine --all these shots are of WINDOWS Screens -- if your problem is WINDOWS / DIsks etc then that's OK but please keep the title relevant to what your problem is (or what you think it might be).

    Cheers

    I asked to make sure the OP had a UEFI/BIOS firmware.

    Therefore as OP has UEFI/BIOS firmware, the link should be in the Startup Options.

I have a new W8 laptop and have acquired Windows 8.1 RTM. The install, unlike the W8 install, prompts me for a key. When I installed W8, the installer simply picked up the key stored in the BIOS, as there was no prompt. Now, however, in 8.1, there is a prompt, and of course I have no way of...
