Hi there, just flashed Bios 217. When I press F2 on boot, I see the regular "old style" Bios. Do we have UEFI on the G55, and if so do we get a "graphical" UEFI instead of standard BIOS? I'm confused by the whole thing, to be honest.

Edit: OK I read http://www.wikihow.com/Check-BIOS-Version ... We do have UEFI but no graphical "BIOS" interface? Can we get one?

Also: Bios 217 took away Bus Speed controls. So there appears to be no overclocking through BIOS. Is this correct? No big deal, just making sure.

Honestly this UEFI thing kept me busy the whole day but I wasnt able to find out whether there is a graphical userinterface or not - I for one wasnt able to find nor acess it, sry. Hope somebody else is more into this.

Ok I think I have the solution... your Laptop indeed has UEFI which "provides" the possibility for a Graphical User Interface.
This by no means forces ASUS to implement it, which I do can understand. Since there is no need for us laptop users to access the UEFI frequently, like people that own an enthusiast-level mainboard, there is absolutely no need for a GUI.

In short: You can feel reassured that everything is ok with your laptop.
