    There is traditional way access the BIOS rather then this way, on bootup either by pressing delete key, should show on logo screen at boot if it's another key.
    Not sure i ever heard if need Admin privileges to access it through Windows 8.1i am only one would access it and the Admin myself, this is the newer more convenient way without rebooting.
