When you successfully arrive at UEFI BIOS interface, please click "Troubleshoot", in the advanced options screen, choose "UEFI Fireware Settings". If you don't see UEFI Fireware Settings here, it means your computer doesn't use UEFI, therefore, things become easier. You can just press F2, Delete, F12, etc. to get into Windows 8 BIOS setting Menu option. However, you can also click Windows Startup Settings to change boot up device no matter it is UEFI or non-UEFI alike.
