Booit into UEFI; how to change boot order Carbon x1

This must be ridiculously simple,however, F1 and/or F12 do not work for me.

 

Have Win 8 Pro and bios 2.5 installed.

 

If you have updated the bios on your carbon x1 and can a) boot into the UEFI menu, b) change the boot order, then I'd appreciate the solution.

 

Please only respond if you have actually accomplished this on a X1 Carbon with the latest bios, 2.5.

 

thanks,

You must turn off Windows 8 fast start (hibernation) or do a full shutdown.

Anyone out there who has actually done this on a Carbon X1 Touch, Win 8 Pro, Bios 2.5?

 

If yes, I would very much appreciate a listing of the steps necessary.

 

thanks,

Have accomlished objective. 

 

Have bad cold and will supply step-by-step tomorrow.

 

Managed to perform full disk image backup to external usb drive, Reboot using a special reboot usb stick and restore the image.  This all done using Macrium Reflect Pro.  Next week will try sceario where backup is restored to a "new" disk.

Sorry man.  I had a meeting so I couldn't give you the steps.  I figured you'd google or bing it since the steps have been discussed here and elsewhere many times.
