On a homebrew computer I've installed a Intel DX79SR Mainboard, changed the BIOS mode to UEFI and installed Windows 8.
I further switched UEFI to fast booting, which works nicely.
Now I wanted to boot into the UEFI firmware settings from Windows 8, but the option to do so is missing from the advanced boot options. Instead of the 6 advanced Options as described in this article I only see 5. The UEFI Option is missing.
Luckily the mainboard itself has a rescue option, but I wonder how I get Windows 8 to recognize my UEFI bios? Shouldn't it be possible to boot into the UEFI settings from Windows itself?
