Windows 10: Boot Order?

    Boot Order?


    Hello

    If the pc BIOS is set such that the very first device to boot from is a usb stick, what happens if there is no usb stick ?

    Will it “automatically” go to the second device (presumably a normal boot) ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    The bios should look at other drives to find the boot drive. If none is found you will get a No boot device found error message.

    My understanding is ...... it goes down the boot order list until it finds one applicable.

    Yes. From my experience, the boot order goes down that list of everything that is listed there. If none of the devices have anything to boot from, then yes, like Winuser said, the computer will state that there is no boot device.
