I basically upgraded form Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit to Windows 8 Professional with a Windows 8 upgrade disk.
However I have lost the ability to check the boot order in BIOS
. I can't access it. Not that it matters in a way because my optical drive has disappeared.
I have a set of Toshiba Recovery Disks but I can't utilize them with no DVD drive. My Toshiba details are at http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/...download?os=30
I tried all the usual workarounds without success. I have the yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager for my hl-dt-st bddvdrw ct40n optical drive. I can't update the driver as Windows says it has the best driver already installed. Basically, I can access an external HDD
used for storage or my internal HDD
I edited the registry as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116
and similar information.
Is there a piece of software (Microsoft Fix it says it has but it doesn't) can help me restore my optical drive and maybe get my F-keys back onboard to access the boot order in BIOS
