rEFInd w/ Windows 8 and Arch Linux

So I have successfully installed Windows 8 on my SSD while having Arch linux installed on my other internal hard drive. I have been using rEFInd as the boot loader and it was working great until today when i flashed my BIOS to a custom version so I could overclock my GPU. Now when it boots it goes straight into Windows 8 and not to rEFInd. I have no idea why. I know I have flashed the BIOS so i had to reenter the settings I had before such as:
SATA Operations = AHCI
Disabled Secure Boot
Disabled Fast Windows 8 Boot
Enabled UEFI and Disabled Legacy
Disabled Legacy ROM support

These are the same settings I was using before. Please help. I'm sure my Arch install is still there and in tact, i just think my BIOS/UEFI isn't recognizing that rEFInd is installed.
