I posted a review on Newegg, and an Asus tech wrote and said "Unfortunately with Windows 8 you can not boot from bios."

I'm looking at the Series 9 too. If you get them and wouldn't mind letting me know if you can successfully boot, that'd be great. I'd appreciate it. Good luck. Not certain how anybody would want to buy Asus moving forward.

I haven't found a solution for the issue. A friend thought he read something about how they were locking out boot options on purpose. How can they do that? I can't believe I can't even do a clean wipe on the machine. Extremely frustrating. Not to mention the backlight bleed all over the bottom of the screen. I've heard their tech support is brutal too. No wonder why Apple wins.

Mine still does not show up. What BIOS version are you on? Mine is 214.

@hennes Just tried that and nothing at all. Still only showing the SSD.

I posted a second screen with what happens if I click add. That filesystem option is all I get. Not sure if I can add USB here somehow.
