Note that this boot menu option option may not be present on all UEFI PCs.

This can help improve compatibility with older operating systems that weren’t designed with UEFI in mind — Windows 7, for example.New Windows 8 PCs don’t include the traditional BIOS.They use UEFI firmware instead, just as Macs have for years.On desktop motherboards designed for tweakers, you should hopefully find these settings in your UEFI settings screen.While the methods of accessing the UEFI settings screen and booting from removable devices are both different, not much else has changed.RELATED: The UEFI settings screen allows you to disable Secure Boot, a useful security feature that prevents malware from hijacking Windows or another installed operating system.
