I only have one option to choose from in my boot menu, windows 8.

How do I do to add for example my BR/DVD drive and a USB memory?

I ended up burning a dvd cause I went with Win 8.1.
And once the dvd was in I could select it in the options.

If during the process (POST) you select F8 you should be able to select boot option. Check your manual for what is the F key for your system.

Haven't tried F8. There is nothing of interest about BIOS included in the manual.

Anyway, I solved. Here is how it is done, Windows 8 and UEFI.

To change the boot menu and add for example the DVD player to the boot menu:
- Boot into BIOS with F2.
- Choose "Security / Secure Boot Menu"
- Set "Secure Boot Control" to Disabled
- Choose "Boot"
- Set "Launch CSM" to Enabled
- Press F10 and Save the configuration
- Reboot
- Boot into BIOS with F2.
- Now you can boot from the DVD player, USB memory or whatever you want.

Reverse to procedure to change it back.

I would prefer to keep it with CSM enabled, but it is a bit of a hazzle boot to Windows 8 then.
