Windows 7: Dell M6600 no USB boot option

Dell M6600 no USB boot option

Hullo,

After reinstalling Windows 7 64bit Pro on M6600 computer I notice I have NO USB boot option in one-time boot list (F12).
USB device is on the second place in BIOS boot sequence (F2).

USB ports works find. I can use all devices connected to them. Although external keyboard remains inactive till the Windows logon screen.

Because of the above I am not able to perform windows backup Image restore directly from an external HD used previously to backup the system. Attempting this I have a prompt to install the driver that I cannot localise.

I will deeply appreciate any helpful suggestion to solve the problem.
Thank you very much in advance,

It was an original Dell DVD Installation Disk and drivers from Dell website installed more than less in suggested order. Recently I update the bios to the latest version.
Legacy USB was/is enabled by default and still no USB option showing up in an one-time boot option.

I think the problem is solved. In a Dell M6600 model only two USB 2 ports could be used for USB booting.
While an USB key is inserted there the USB boot option IS enabled in one-boot list (F12).

However the keyboard connected there remains disabled, though highlighted until the Windows logon screen comes out.
Any idea on that?

Thank you for your response.

Tofic one option you have mate is a clean install using this

REINSTALL

For installingI prefer a disk to be honest but if you want to try again this is the one tofollow
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 makesure it is the right version ie Home Premium or Ultimate whatever you have an activationcode (on the machine sticker) for and then the language. (see pic)
Now this will eliminate all of the Dell bloatware and in general gives you a bit faster machine but please stick with the version you had originally some go for the Pro or Ultimate when they see them and of course the code will not activate them.
Any Dell drivers can be added afterwards if need be.
You can use a disk or USB stick with this.
