    I get it I understand what CMOS is an BIOS is. What I am telling you is the BIOS creep does not appear once the CMOS set up utility screen and there is only ONE option that says Adavanced BIOS Features. No BIOS set ups screen in any options anywhere that I can see. At startup I have DEL bios setup which brings me to CMOS screen setup utility. ESC for boot setup which just allows me to pick harddisk or USB-HDD and other options I have stated above. USB Legacy function is enabled as well under the Intergrated Perhipherals option. I cannot see my USB stick under the boot options menu

    Adavanced BIOS Features << Is the option that should take you to the full BIOS setup menu. If your thumb drive doesn't show up in the Boot Options menu its not setup correctly. Or there are other options you have to change to so its detected. On my old desktop PC I have to do the following to boot from my Windows 10 thumb drive.
    BIOS > Boot > Hard Disk Drive > 1st Drive > USB-Kingston Data Traveller.
    BIOS > Boot > Boot Device Priority > 1st Boot Device > USB-Kingston Data Traveller.

    Select Lexar stick and see what happens. Your BIOS may just drop the USB part. The BIOS menus vary quit a bit from PC to PC manufacturer to manufacturer. If it works, on the first reboot during setup, you'll have to go back into the BIOS and switch it back to the hard drive. If you don't it will just go throw the setup all over again.

    Just a point on this part. After the display of setup progress, about 5-6 lines that are checked green when completed, there will be a 10 second countdown before that first reboot. It is displayed on the top of the screen. As long as he pulls the stick out before that 10 seconds is up , he'll be fine. No need to go back and rearrange the bios boot order again. It will fall thru the BIOS choices and boot from SSD/HDD, or whatever is second.

    Yes that will work if the hard drive is set as the second boot option. I like to go back in anyway and set it back to normal so there is no pause on boot up while it looks for the thumb drive.
