Windows 7: Booting from UEFI bios

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Booting from UEFI bios

I have an ASUS MB H81K on two of my systems. The only way I can boot to Windows is it hold down the DEL key and select the F8 boot sequence list, click on the boot drive and go.

Instructions are to drag and drop - but nothing I can drag and drop changes the boot sequence.

Alternately is there a way to get to the classical BIOS?

Some UEFI BIOS allow to change the GUI to "classic BIOS". Once you enter BIOS look on options.
Enter BIOS (Del), go to booting devices, and set the HDD as fist boot. Save and exit (F10).
