x220i unable to access bios setup after upgrade to Windows 8

I just upgraded my x220i tablet to Windows 8.  All works great except I cannot access the bios setup.  I know you have to access bios differently under Windows 8 by going through the advanced restart in the OS but I do not get an option to enter the bios.  Please help.

Hi Pappa32, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

It's called "UEFI Firmware Settings" (not "enter the bios") Try this: hold down Shift while clicking Restart>Troubleshoot>Advanced Options>UEFI Firmware Settings.

 

Tell us what you find!

Nope.  I don't get the option for "UEFI Firmware Settings" under Advanced Options.
