    Do you have UEFI BIOS? If yes, you can tell Windows 8 to boot into it from the Recovery option in PC Settings.

    Going to let someone else try, I think maybe the language thing is getting in the way.

    Try "dirty shutdow", hold power until laptop turns off. Then try getting into BIOS on startup.

    From your video I never saw you press any keys. Hold down the shift key and tell windows to shut down. After it has shut completely down do the following:

    1. Press the power button and as soon as you press the power button start tapping on the F1 key to enter BIOS.

    You do not have to wait for a screen to tell you to press a key. Just do it.

    If F1 doesn't work you could try the other common keys such as F2, DEL, ESC, F10 or ESC....

    A BIOS reset may help.
