Windows 7: Boot priorities and paths deleted after BIOS reset to default.

Boot priorities and paths deleted after BIOS reset to default.

I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7.
I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted.

Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI).

I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive.

I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all,
please tell me how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

Thank you.

A Win8 PC needs Secure Boot turned off to Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7.

If this fails or you'd prefer it you can Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7
