    No need to change the boot order. You only need to select it from the boot list (not the BIOS)

    Thank you. And this is in the UEFI settings? This is where I changed the boot order.

    This tutorial may help, but note that...
    If you have fast boot or ultra fast boot enabled in your UEFI firmware settings, then you will need to temporarily disable fast boot or ultra fast boot to be able to boot from a USB.

    I did not see anything about fastboot in the UEFI settings. I did see an option for bringing up the boot menu with the F12 key. I enabled that to see what would happen. But once I rebooted and hit F12,. The Hard Drive was the only option. The USB was not listed

    If we knew the make and model we could offer specific advice. It may be that you need to enable Legacy Boot Mode...

    On newer Windows 8 PCs using the UEFI or EFI boot standard, many PC manufacturers require you to take certain steps to allow you to boot into recovery tools and non-EFI or non-UEFI operating systems.

    It's an Acer Aspire ES 15. I did see the Legacy boot mode option. You could choose between UEFI and Legacy . I will try that in the morning. Thank you.

    I was able to select my USB drive in the boot list after enabling Legacy Mode. Running Memtest now.

    I believe you have to do that from within windows. Which I can not boot into.

    Memtest was on Pass # 6 when I left this morning with no errors so far.

    11 passes when I got home. Zero errors. Not sure what to do now. I am thinking he may of downloaded something that caused this. Unfortunately it won't let me restore to a previous backup .
