We have bought a couple of new laptops that came with Windows 8 (Toshiba L870) but we don't use Win8 at work so have rebuilt with Win7 (with Secure Boot turned off).

Does anyone know how to get into the UEFI system manager to make changes? We did it originally via Windows 8 itself.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You access the configuration menu the same way you always have accessed bios. I would check the manual for the laptop. – Ramhound Jan 24 '13 at 0:57
Hmmm, there was a user guide in the box, but it was pathetic! I've tried the default for other Toshiba laptops to get into the BIOS but they don't seem to work. It doesn't display anything at the Toshiba logo screen either. – neildeadman Jan 24 '13 at 8:05

Check the BIOS manual and it may clue you in on how to get into the UEFI BIOS. On my MSI board I get to the BIOS with DEL or the Boot menu with F11.

I did this on my desktop PC running Windows 7 Ultimate. Your manual should have similar instructions.

This really isn't an answer. More specific advice for his laptop would be welcome. – Ramhound Jan 24 '13 at 0:58
