    I just selected "Windows Boot Manager" as the boot option and it seems to be working. I've never seen this as an option thus was confused and unknowledgable. Is this correct?

    I'm still encountering a system freeze sometimes when I plug a USB device in a USB port. I just plugged the USB 3 Toshiba 2.5" drive in one of the front ports of my tower, the Toshiba white light came on which means it was detected as USB 2 and the system froze my only recourse was to press the reset button. I removed the Toshiba drive and hit the reset.

    I then connected the Toshiba drive to the back of the tower USB 3 port coming off the MB. It was properly detected and I could use it.

    Please confirm I have the correct Storage Configuration settings, following are what I currently have
    • SATA Controller - Enabled
    • SATA Mode - AHCI
    • AMD AHCI BIOS ROM - Disabled
    • SATA IDE Combined Mode - Disabled
    • Aggressive Link Power Management - Enabled
    • Hard Disk SMART - Enabled
    • ASMedia SATA3 Mode - Enabled
    • SATA Boot ROM - Disabled

    I read through the manual regarding BIOS but most of it was like water on a duck's back. I see the words but very often I have no idea what the heck they are trying to tell me. OK so I'm old and slow.

    With Windows 8.x I believe that's correct. I don't use Win8. I remember reading that it may show up as that in the bios, reasons unknown to me.

    That looks good to me.

    Easy with the "old and slow'. I'm feeling my age today and it ain't pretty.
