BIOS Problem I think? Never seen anything like it.

So, first I should say this began after I installed 2 GTX 770's running in SLI. Now I'm not sure if it's related but I felt it needed mentioning. This occurs most times after a restart, not every time, mind you but most. So since I'm unable to upload the actual screenshot I took, I will copy down what the screen is telling me:

AMERICAN MEGATRENDS (logo and words)

Asus Z87 Deluxe / Dual ACPI BIOS Revision 0905
(It continues with system specs, I'll list what I think is important)

Total memory: 8192MB DDR3 1600

Lists my 3 HDD's

(Here's the weird bit:) 
The reserved memory is insufficient due to dual Intel thunderbolt ports resource occupation.the function of onboard thunderbolt is now disabled for better system resource allocation. Press F1 to BIOS and manually disable the unused I/O peripheral controllers is required. Suggested items: ASM 1061 SATA/Realtek LAN/Wi-Fi/Thunderbolt Controller. Press F1 to enter Setup.

(I copied that Word for Word from my screen, now the first time I pressed F1 it immediately booted into Windows like nothing happened. The second time it happened I pressed F1 and it booted into BIOS, but on other occasion it booted into windows again. I haven't changed anything in the BIOS, my RAM usage doesn't seem high, around 25% usage. I have a thunderbolt drive coming in the mail, so I haven't verified if the ports are still functional.)

Sooo, if you've gotten this far I can't thank you enough. All I'm looking for is an explanation, maybe a solution if you can provide one! Thanks So Much!

I supposed you should dedicate some memory to the onboard GPU if possible. Now I haven't looked into thunderbolt much as its been generally to expensive for my tastes but if I remember right didn't it have to go through the onboard GPU?

I wouldn't know, I don't know how the thunderbolt uses the onboard graphics, the onboard shouldn't be used at all if I'm using my GPU's I/O right?

I wonder if SLI is causing the issue?
