Compaq CQ58-392SG Boot menu

I wanted to try an Ubuntu live cd on my girlfriend's new laptop:

Compaq CQ58-392SG
AMD Vision E1 APU

This is an EFI device, there's no classic BIOS.

Since there's no clue at startup how to get into EFI configuration console, i tried out every standard key combination.

The solution
Hold ESC while cold booting
(Restarting Windows 8 is not sufficient!)
