Fixing the (UEFI) Boot Order

Modified on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 at 02:30 PM

Please note some of the settings/names in the following guides have changed over the years. It is very difficult to know the exact name for every motherboard for the last 10+ years as there are always very small tweaks to the phrasing.

  1. Switch on your system and start repeatedly tapping the Delete or F2 key on the keyboard, at least twice a second (often it is easier to do this from a restart than a shutdown state)
  2. You will then be met by a screen named “ASUS BIOS Utility - EZ Mode” or you may be already in Advanced Mode
  3. If you're in EZ Mode, press F7 to Enter the Advanced Mode, select Yes if prompted
  4. Navigate to the Boot tab at the top. You can use your Mouse or the Arrow keys on the keyboard.
  5. Scroll down to the section where you’ll see Boot Option #1, Boot Option #2, etc
  6. Highlight Boot Option #1 and press Enter
  7. You should see a list of options appear, press Enter on the top option and navigate to Windows Boot Manager in the list and press Enter to select it
  8. This should change Boot Option #1 to now be Windows Boot Manager
  9. Finally, press F10 and choose to Save Changes and Restart
  10. From there you should load into Windows correctly now
