    Issue with Asus X550L UEFI settings


    I installed Windows 8.1 (64) with UEFI in my Asus X550L laptop (I refer this forum UEFI USB guide). After the installation I can see 4 partitions. Just like the tutorial mentioned. Once the Windows 8.1 installation completed I try to boot into the UEFI settings menu, but it boot into the BIOS.

    In BIOS, when I select "Launch EFI Shell from filesystem device" it shows not found message.


    What could be the reason and how to fix this matter?

    The EFI shell is something you don't normally have to invoke. It is probably not even set up to use.

    The UEFI settings are accessed through the Bios. What exactly are you wanting to do with the UEFI settings?

    I don't want to do anything, I just want to check it's properly working. Yes I try to access UEFI via BIOS.

    Check Disk management, right click windows start button on Desktop screen, select Disk Management. There you can tell by looking at your drives. Any other question about it, ask more.

    Yes I checked and it shows I have efi and recovery partitions. Also windows shows it uses UEFI boot. But how do I access to UEFI graphic interface?

    The Bios is the UEFI graphical access. Maybe you are looking at some utility which won't allow you into the actual bios. If so, a picture taken with a camera might help explain.

    Well i felt Disk Management would at least tell you, you did it right for UEFI install.True what exactly do you really want to do or know more of. Would only to make changes to access it.
