    I checked it because I assumed it should have been enabled.

    When I checked it, that appeared to enable it, therefore I unchecked it.

    The screens show which ones I looked at and how they are set.

    Blackscreen with the bootable device message is where this leads each time?

    Can't read the last screen at all. Camera overexposed.

    In the panel Boot Configuration, lower portion Boot Devices.

    The top line UEFI Internal Shell, does not appear to have check mark. Was it always like this?

    Hey there. Could you place a little more description around this

    "Ok, couldn't get to the BIOS from the advanced start method. Consumed quite a bit of time trying to make ready then update which failed."

    What were you updating? and what failed?

    Thanks

    I tried the instruction to get, I assume, to BIOS thru the Advanced Start.

    The tutorial found by following the link appeared to be for win8, but, was similar on my end although did not have the UEFI or whatever option.

    As ot tried to restart, where it did not give me the options shown in the tutorial, it did the update stuff which didn't last nearly as long as normal since I started having this update problem.

    It also did not try and undo changes twice.

    Hopefully this is coherent.

    I believe it also tried or did start up repairs.

    However, the machine booted up and worked fine after all that.


    It didnt act stupid until I went in BIOS via f2.

    I don't think I changed anything, other than the checking and unchecking, and hate the idea that I may have and don't recall.

    When I start and do f10

    Displays 'select boot device' and none are shown to select

    When I start and f7

    Displays Bios Flas Update and shows my 2.5 sdd and Partition 1, and my msata having 3 partitions and for some reason, I don't recall there being but 1 partition on it. I may be mistaken.

    F2, f7 and f10 are the only sequences that doesn't go to the black screen.

    Well something happen in those minutes.

    Not following ...

    "It also did not try and undo changes twice."

    Then you said .... I believe it also tried or did start up repairs. Something got whacked if it is doing startup repairs..

    Your machine is not seeing your boot device. If you didn't change anything then maybe you can get it back by trying a repair. You have your boot media, can you boot it and try repair.


    Have to step away for 10. I'll be right back.

    If I changed anything, I don't know it.


    What in BIOS should I change to see if it will detect and boot from my msata, as it always has prior?


    I made my usb media and have it along with my product key.


    Regarding the restarting/repairing from updates section that leads to restarting, that all appeared like a bootup where it hung on the 1703 update to me.

    It vooted and worked fine after that.

    There shouldn't be anything to change.

    As a test, install your USB key and re-enter bios with F2. You should see it as a bootable option.

    Thanks.
