    Rebooting from Windows directly to UEFI via a manufacturers utility


    My motherboard manufacturer, ASUS, provides a utility (called 'ASUS Boot Setting') which can be used to reboot a computer directly from Windows to the UEFI. My question is, would it be possible to somehow link to this from the Windows shutdown menu options such as 'shutdown', 'sleep', 'hibernate' etc?

    Save a batch file (.bat) with the following command in it:

    shutdown /r /f /t 00

    Make a shortcut to the batch (.bat) file on your desktop and pin it to the taskbar if you want.

    /r means restart
    /f means restart into UEFI firmware
    /t 00 means immediately

    When you create the shortcut to the .bat file, select the properties for the shortcut and the advanced button and set it to run as administrator.

    Thanks very much. Does that also mean that it can't actually be included in the normal list of shutdown options though?

    It might be possible with a registry entry, but that would be beyond my knowledge. You can probably assign the shortcut a hotkey sequence like ctrl-alt-s. The annoying part is that it has to be run as administrator, so you do have to answer the UAC prompt.

    You can already do that from the Recovery options....
