What do you mean by "firmware screen"? The bios?

I was just trying to work out what that screen is called if it is using EFI rather than BIOS, but you might want to think of it as the BIOS screen.

On my 3 latest ASUS board with AMI bios I haven't got any chance to modify any settings but the boot order, if any.

It is not always easy to find out which key to hit to get the BIOS screen to appear. My ASUS laptop will give the boot order choice if you hit (or rather keep hitting) one particular key, but if you can find the other magic key then the BIOS screen appears. The keys that may be used include :-

<escape>, <delete>, <F10>, <F12> and there may be others. I have no written documentation to tell me what to use! I will have a look on the web...

Re: EFI trouble

I have just downloaded the PDF manual for my ZenBook UX305FA and on page 54 it tells me that I press <F2> during POST to access the BIOS. According to this document, <F2> has a picture of an aeroplane. (I am on a different machine currently).

Re: EFI trouble

I have now tried the keys during the Power On Self Test on my ZenBook. The delete key also works...

<F2>  BIOS screen
<delete> BIOS screen
<escape> Boot screen
