I apologize if this is in the wrong section of the forum, but it pertains so directly to motherboards that I felt it would reach the right people here.

Asrock's motherboards, or at least mine, came with a program which I think is called "Restart to UEFI"

As I remember it, it allows you run a utility from your Windows desktop which will restart your computer and bring you into BIOS without any additional user input. You would not have to sit there at the computer and hit F2 to enter BIOS. It would just enter BIOS automatically. I really like the convenience of being able to use this utility and walk away from the computer immediately, and have the BIOS opened when I return.

I attempted to install Asrock's utility on an Asus motherboard. The utility wouldn't even open.

Would any of you who are familiar with Asrock's utility or at least what I am describing know of a utility to achieve this that isn't Asrock specfic?

Make a shortcut on desktop and in it's properties write "%windir%\System32\shutdown /r /fw ", name it what you want and select an icon for it.
