I have come to know the fact that the only way to get into the bios is through windows 8 booted and accessing the advanced startup options... so i have a genuine question here..
what happens if someone's windows 8 partition gets corrupted? Then there is no way to access the bios options to set to boot from a usb drive for recovery??..
my question assumes that the recovery partition on new pcs arent able to recover the windows state..
The other way to say this question is that is it possible to have only ubuntu on this kind of a notebook?? and still have a way to go into the bios/uefi settings?
