when I enter bios to change boot device, the priority boot is the only choice to boot. the others are not highlighted in the "Boot Options" This is a Gateway with Acer bios on win 8.1

I have changed the boot order on several computers, this one will not give me a place to make to change the priority. The only one with priority is Windows boot manager. Win 8.1, Acer computer

There may be an F key (top row of keys) you can press to bring up a boot device menu, often the correct key to use is shown onscreen just after switching on.

changing boot order is locked in win 8.1,I restored 8.1 to factory condition and am now upgrading it to win 10. Thanks for all the suggestions.
