    Stuck in bios, please help


    Hi. I don't know what to do, already asked for help on bunch of forums, but nobody was able to help. I cleaned my hard drive in command prompt and now I'm stuck in bios. Can't do anything, not even boot my windows DVD, so I can install a new one.

    Did you enable boot menu in boot options in the bios ?
    If so, you can press the assigned F-key at splash screen to get boot options.

    Insert the dvd & restart & press the F-key at splash screen & you should see the dvd as an option.
    Choose it & continue.

    It works for me.

    Don't think, I have that. My bios is weird, it's missing bunch of stuff. Though, I can post all my bios options, if you want

    edited the OP, hopefully it'll give you some idea of what's going on

    Boot the DVD in UEFI mode from One Time Boot Menu or Boot Override.

    Thanks for trying, I think I screwed up my bios, when upgraded to Windows 8.1. Didn't have any problems before that
