    My system has got to the stage were I have to reinstall Windows 10. None of my data lives on the C: drive, so I have prepared a USB drive to install from, but am unable to get my Gigabyte X79-UD5 board to boot from USB.

    USB Legacy support is enabled.

    I am unable to us my Performance MX mouse inside the BIOS

    Yes. I think the USB drive is OK. I just can't find an option to boot from USB in the BIOS.

    OK, I think I have got it. I have a lot of drives (four SSD and five internal) so I disconnected everything except the C: drive with Windows on it. I think there might have been a limit as to how many drives the BIOS could display, because the USB drive appeared on the much shortened list. Windows is now installing from the USB drive.

    I won't hit the solved button just yet just in case, but I think it is going OK.

    Thanks
