    How to Boot to UEFI Firmware Settings from inside Windows 10

    information   Information
    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is a standard firmware interface for PCs, designed to replace BIOS (basic input/output system). This standard was created by over 140 technology companies as part of the UEFI consortium, including Microsoft. It's designed to improve software interoperability and address limitations of BIOS.

    This tutorial will show you how to boot directly to your motherboard's UEFI firmware settings from inside Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    This only applies if your PC's motherboard has a UEFI firmware chip instead of a BIOS chipset.

    This only applies if Windows 10 was installed using UEFI, and not legacy BIOS (CSM).

    Hi, if I don't see UEFI firmware settings under Advanced options on my comp, then I guess my MOBO doesn't have it?

    Hey Case1, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Your MSI 870-G45 specs below doesn't show that it supports UEFI.

    Hi Shawn

    I have asus gl552jx machineand it is configured for uefi boot, but I am still not able to access the UEFI BIOS utility tool. When I do the above steps, I land on the normal BIOS configuration where I have only 1 boot option for windows.

    Hello vedz91, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    See if tapping the F2 key during post will open your BIOS settings.

    Thanks, Brinks.

    It opens the same old Windows BIOS, nothing like the ASROCK UEFI BIOS utility...
