    Bios Boot Configuration Options Gone


    Hi

    I recently purchased an Asus N56VJ with Windows 8 pre-installed. At first I was trying to downgrade to Windows 7, but could not get past the windows splash screen trying to do a clean install . Anyway, while I was trying to figure out how to install windows 7, I was messing around in the bios. I decided to just stick with the Windows 8, but my bios is screwed up. I do not have any boot configuration options anymore. I tried to flash my bios, but the bios was still the same. I did a full reset on my machine, and still no change in the bios. Is there any way to get my bios options back to the factory settings with all the options? Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.

    Why are the pictures upside down after uploading? Another new wonderful security feature from Windows 8?

    Reset the ASUs BIOS back to factory default setting.

    Use the F9 key.

    Also take a look at your screenshot, named BIOS.

    option RESTORE DEFAUILTS.

    Also Windows Boot Manager is always first boot device.

    Ive tried that a bunch of times, but I'll try it again. But if you can see in the first screen shot, you have the option to Launch CSM, etc. I do not have any of those options anymore.
