My MB is fairly new.
I only got it in May, but I think that it had been available for about a year.
I read a review on that MB series (not my board specifically) that was done in 2010.
The BIOS on this MB reconfigures itself at every boot up.
I can't have it remember USB
unless all of the devices are present.
If any device is missing, it rewrites the boot device order.
My old MBs would remember the boot settings you selected, even if the device was no longer present.
