    Can this motherboard boot from a USB device

    Hi guys first post here ,

    BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies, LTD ASUS M2N-E SLI ACPI BIOS Revision 0801, 25/04/2007

    This is an older MB and I have installed Windows 10 as a fresh install now and its running nicely .

    The Question is would I be able in the future to install windows via a USB Stick as there's no option in the BIOS as a first boot device.

    This is in case I ever have a situation where I can't get back into Windows and need to reinstall my OS.

    Hope this kind of makes sense lol

    USB is considered as Removable device. Does it have this option in the BIOS ?
