Are you sure it has a windows 8 installation on it? I could be wrong I guess but I'm thinking it just has motherboard drivers and maybe some utilities. There must have been some instructions with the disk on how to use it.

Don't rush to update BIOS. This is only done for some specific reason (rare) and mostly does not need touching. Get it wrong and the motherboard is bricked.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"So you are saying I need to update my bios for it to work?"
No, you are booting from your MB CD.

1: Install Windows from your Windows CD ( Not your MB CD )

2: Whilst in Windows, insert the MB CD & install the drivers.

"I cannot install my asus cd!"

As stated above, you need to install Windows 1st, then you can install whatever you need from the MB CD.
