No, not both key presses. Use one or the other. You can also press DEL and enter the BIOS one time boot menu and select what you want, save and exit.

I know it isn't both, I tried both seperately and I can enter the bios to place the usb first in boot order using delete, I've been able to do that from the beginning. The problem is that for some reason it doesn't seem to matter, after I save and restart, windows simply opens and after checking the bios again, the main hdd is in first place again. I'll try it on a different flash drive or temporarily unplug the hdd next.

Just a thought, in this snip I have a hp USB attached to a USB 2.0 port. It also shows as UEFI hp. If you choose the UEFI boot it will go direct to w7 instead of booting the USB drive. Also connect to a USB 2.0 port.

Britton, i never would have thought of that . Also thank you for going to the trouble of taking the picture of the boot screen and everything, it's really helpful.

You're quite welcome, did it enable you to boot so you can run memtest?
I've hit the UEFI boot too often, lol.

Yeah I got it to work, running right now on the computer. Thanks for telling me to put it in a usb 2.0; it still showed up only as a uefi but when I used the boot menu at the bottom (which i never saw????), and sorry for the late response I was on a vacation.

I ran the test but then after coming back around 3 hours later the computer was at the windows login screen... I'm so lost at this point, what even happened? Because of it returning to the login screen I couldn't determine the results, but there were no bluescreens logged so I'm clueless as to what actually happened. If anyone could get back to me with what I should do at this point it would be very appreciated.

It appears that something caused a system reboot. Could be just a hiccup in the power lines around your home or something more serious in your hardware.

Can you try running memtest again?

If you run Windows Memory Diagnostic instead my mistake, it defaults to run two passes and reboot.

I wasn't running windows memory diagnostic, I ran memtest from this site Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Or maybe I'm just misinterpreting what you're saying Britton. I will try the test again to see if the same results occur, but I fear that the problem the whole time was the motherboard since we've ruled out the hard drive and processor, and the passes that memtest did on the memory were fine when I left (still only 1-2 passes though). I'll run it again later on.
