Four months ago I install Mint 14 in dual boot with Windows 7 on my new ASUS (F301). I install it UEFI-mode from USB. Two months later I upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8, without problems. Some days ago I was hearing music and something began not to work. There was a sudden crash which power off the computer. A little scared I switch on again and everything was apparently working. A couple of days after this strange crash, I wanted to enter Mint (which usually I do from the UEFI-Bios menu), but the Mint’s reference in the menu has disappeared. The Windows Boot Manager was the only option.
I'm really lost on what had gone, perhaps the problem was due to a option in the Bios as the PXE ROM was enabled, and in the crash the computer was complaining about something relative to the network card. I've now disabled that option.
I’d like to place again the option for Mint under the menu tab of UEFI-Bios, I can't access now to Mint. I know that this is not a "Mint topic", but perhaps someone has any idea. Otherwise I would be obliged to reinstall Mint.
