once again I find myself in need f help. my brother-in-law gave me a asus x55m to repair. its stuck in a boot loop on start up and in repair mode. If searched google up one side and down the other and have tried all that I have found with no results. I have even made a windows 8 bootable flash drive in hopes I could at least get to the restore section( It has no cd/dvd rom ) ,but no luck. The only thing I have no tried yet is removing the hard drive setting it up externally and doing a checkdisk.Im sure there is someone out there that has experienced this and knows the secret to boot up or factory reset.

  Any and all help is highly appreciated.

Hello Rascle53,

 

For computers that have UEFI as opposed to legacy BIOS, to be able to boot from your USB device you may need to disable secure boot and change UEFI to CSM Boot, not all computers and BIOS are the same, please refer to your user manual if you have one as the following steps are only one such example. 
 
While the computer is re-starting,you will need to continually tap or hold down the particular key that will allow you to access the BIOS on your computer, we will use the F2 key as an example here;
 
After restarting the computer, when the screen goes black, press and hold down the F2 key, wait for the BIOS to load.
 
Select Security -> Secure Boot and then Disabled.
Select Advanced -> System Configuration and then Boot Mode.
Change UEFI Boot to CSM Boot.
Save the changes and Exit the BIOS, commonly F10.
 
Restart the notebook with the USB device in place and test.
