    UEFI BIOS settings to prepare for Windows 10 Installation


    Is it advisable to set the UEFI BIOS (Asus ROG Hero Maximus VI motherboard) to a factory default settings before installing Windows 10? Or should I at least set the memory "XMP" profile?

    Thanks!

    Hello Greg,

    The only UEFI firmware settings that I would recommend to temporarily change until Windows 10 installation is complete is:

    Disable Fast Boot to make it easier to be able to boot from a USB. When Fast Boot is enabled, you don't have time to be able to press the Boot Menu key to select to boot from a USB.

    Disable Secure Boot. Some motherboards do not support booting from a USB while secure boot is enabled.
