Hi There,

I just built a desktop with a sabertooth x79 motherboard, and am running Windows 8.1 pro 64-bit. When I click the UEFI BIOS Firmware live tile via the change PC settings>update and recovery>recovery>etc. my computer reboots normally to Windows and will not open BIOS. I have tried accessing it using the delete and f2 keys, but this does nothing either.

Any ideas? I am up to date in terms of my BIOS, and am definitely running UEFI and not legacy.

Thank you so much.

OK I figured it out. I had to sign in using my Administrator's password. I didn't realize that by signing in using my account password it wouldn't let me access BIOS. Maybe this will be useful to someone else some day...
Thanks for the help.
