    UEFI boot order?


    I have no BIOS, only 8 boots up but instead of the Windows logo, with the ASUS. How will I boot from CD? I have configured an EasyBCD program to allow me to choose, but what if 8 cannot boot?

    When you say you have no bios - do you mean you can't see any way of getting into bios/efi setup options?

    There's probably a key press to do it.

    Did you get a manual with that thing ?
