If you need to boot your Asus computer from a USB drive or CD-ROM, you need to go to BIOS and create a configuration.

On the superuser forums, a poster featuring a Zenbook checked with an Asus technician and was told that  Windows 8 could not be booted from his BIOS. 

  •  I've posted some workarounds for this issue at the bottom of the page if you'd like to try them out - they're listed under Workarounds for Asus Windows 8. Booting from USB with  BIOS 

  •  Asus provides the following instructions for booting Windows 10 from a flash drive or CD. 

  •  (If you don't know how to get into the BIOS, scroll down a bit, I've outlined the process for that). 

  •  Boot from Asus X555L Bios USB disk drive 

  •  Make sure to select [BOOT] when you enter the BIOS setup. Then enable Launch CSM. (compatibility support module) 

  •  Type Security -> Disable Secure Boot Control 

  •  Press F10  to save your configuration changes.

  •  How To Enter Bios 

  •  According to Asus, because of the Fast Startup feature, you can`t just press F2 to get in BIOS configuration when booting the computer. 

 Check out the steps below to enter BIOS configuration. 

 1. Hold and press [Shift] after that switch off the computer. 

 2. Push and hold the F2 button after that click on the power button. Don`t let go of the F2 button prior to the BIOS screen display.

 Asus Windows 8 Workaround 

 Below is a workaround for Asus Windows 8 when unable to boot from the USB option in BIOS. (Original instructions can be found here). 

  •  Plug-in  USB drive 

  •  Power on your Zenbook laptop  

  •  Press ESC or F2 to enter UEFI (BIOS). 

  •  Boot tab: Disable Fastboot (*) 

  •  Press F10  to save and exit 

  •  Immediately press ESC or F2  again 

  •  Under the Boot tab, you will see your USB drives - change the order 

  •  Press F10  to save and exit 

  •  The Zenbook should boot from the USB drive. 

  •  * Need to "Enable CSM" when booting in legacy mode. 

  •  The poster states that a more recent firmware version may be required if the above does not work. 

  •  Another Super User poster provided an additional fix that resolved the issue for many Asus users.

  • turn on the computer  

  •  Press F2 to enter  BIOS

  •  Select "CSM + UEFI" in the OS mode selector 

  •  then press F10 

  •  Press and hold F2 to enter  BIOS 

  •  Check boot -> check boot priority to see if the attached USB  

  •  USB flash drive shows a boot reference. 

  •  Instructables has put together a helpful table of USB flash drive boot references. When you boot your Asus computer from the 

 USB devise, you are actually running the computer with the operating system you installed on the actual flash drive. 

 This is compared to normal behavior when you boot your PC (install and run an operating system on the internal hard drive). Windows, Linux, or something else. 

It usually takes only  10-20 minutes to complete.
