I checked again, what I have where you have the uefi option is "start up settings (change windows start up behavior)".

It wont even allow me to select any of those options, could it maybe be that because this perticular motherboard is 100% usb 3/3.1 and has no inputs at all for usb 2 that is maybe why my keyboard and mouse wont work when I am in that screen ?

The mouse and keyboard work fine in the booted windows envioroment but not before that, wonder if thats the reason, hmmm, could that cause there to be that different option those screen options ??? this is kinda hard to figure out, hmmm :confused::confused:

Make sure you try restarting after it has been up and running for a couple minutes. If I try and restart with options right after startup I also only get the option to change startup settings. You have to wait a minute or two before trying to restart. It probably has something to do with delayed system analysis. The only reason I can think of for not seeing the troubleshooting option to edit UEFI Firmware Settings is a broken linkage or the install isn't even in UEFI mode. Does it report BIOS mode as UEFI in msinfo32? If you run sfc /scannow is it clean?

in system info it says Bios Mode Legacy (if thats what you mean ?)

and the screenshot shows what happens when I try to run sfc /scannow
(I am the system administrator) hmmm ?

please let me know what you think, thanks.

That is why UEFI firmware settings is missing in the restart menu. It must be a UEFI install, or at least Windows must see it as a UEFI install (it sees it as legacy/MBR right now). Either Windows is mis-detecting or an installation was performed in legacy mode. You could check this by seeing if CSM is enabled or if the partition is formatted in MBR or GPT. What I don't get is if that option is missing and Windows sees your install as Legacy why you can't easily access the BIOS at startup.

sfc /scannow must be run as an administrator. Right click the Start Menu and click Command Prompt (Admin).
