NUC8i7HVB -- Version J68196-601 Cannot boot from USB

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro build 2004 (10.0.19401)

BIOS 0064

I cannot boot from USB. The only option I get is booting from Windows. I cannot turn off UEFI boot and have no option to enable Legacy boot.

Secure boot is not checked

USB and Optical devices are checked

Boot USB first is checked

I have tried Rufus and free dos to create the bootable drive. Formatted FAT32 on USB 3; USB 2 and even a 15 year old USB 1.1.

I have added USB in the back and in the front but never see anything other than the windows disk as an option to boot from. 

It is a working system that I cannot rebuild at the moment and is otherwise working pretty well. 

I do not know what else to try. It should be a simple thing to boot from USB.

Hi.

 

The boot sector on the USB needs to be updated in order to boot the Windows Boot Manager. Try creating the installation media again using the Media Creation Tool.

@n_scott_pearson I have tried all rear ports individually with all three of the USB drives with no luck.

As far as what I see in the Visual Bios that option is presented as a check mark in the Home page of the bios. As the Boot Order option.

Yip that works. I was trying to boot into DOS but I don't think legacy boot is supported as there is no option anywhere in the Visual BIOS and all I see is UEFI.
