Hi,

Can someone advise me on how to enable the USB boot option on a GA-B85-HD3 motherboard, please?

Thanks,

Martin

Greetings,

Fast and Ultra Fast Boot should be disabled.

Next set of options:  BIOS > BIOS Features (heading) > Boot Options Priority

What is it you are trying to boot from and what is the desired result?

Hi shadowsports,

Thanks very much for the reply.8-))

I am going to install windows 10 on a spare drive and I have the program on a USB drive so I wanted to boot from that.

Why I wasn't sure if it could be booted from a USB is that I cannot see that option listed in the manual although I have seen the USB Support option but I am not sure whether I need to use that option?

Should I se that to Full Initial?

Martin,
Fast and Ultra Fast Boot should be disabled.  When done, USB Support options are disabled.  So there will not be a "Full Initial" option.  You can boot from the device by tapping the F12 key.
