Hi

you can change the boot order in bios to the usb as the first boot device.

So, the 1st boot should be Removable Device? Yes, it goes straight to Windows. I haven't done the F12 option yet.

If you have Windows Boot Manager then you have an EFI BIOS so any flash stick must be specially formatted to boot for UEFI and then the stick must be chosen specifically as a UEFI device.
