Windows 7: AMI Aptio F6 BIOS [Antec VSK3000E desktop] Win7Pro [Retail]

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
AMI Aptio F6 BIOS [Antec VSK3000E desktop] Win7Pro [Retail]

I have AMI Aptio F6 BIOS in my Antec VSK3000E desktop, running Windows 7 Professional [Retail, not OEM].
Belarc reports: Boot Mode: Legacy BIOS in UEFI & UEFI: American Megatrends Inc. F6 08/03/2013 &
Board: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. Q87M-D2H. I have tweaked UEFI/BIOS combine to reflect as much BIOS as possible.

My question concerns the three Boot Options, and the Boot Options Priority; apparently within the Legacy-BIOS portion.

I would like to set Boot Options to:
external USB FD
external USB CD\DVD device
external USB stick [bootable]
internal CD\DVD reader/writer [also has BluRay playing ability]
internal CD\DVD reader/writer [does not have BluRay playing ability]
internal hard-drive [has System Reserved partition, Cdrive partition, Ddrive partition]

Because I do not at all understand the choices that are found in the Options and Priority blocks,
I have no idea on how to "write" the above 6 choices into Boot Options and Boot Options Priority.

From what I have seen you do not get to "write" in the drives you want. The UEFI/BIOS will usually only show fixed drives as boot options for the boot order. I believe this is because using a removable drive as a boot priority option could cause problems.

A method I use is to use the F8 key at boot to bring up the BBS, or boot menu. There you will see all connected bootable drives and you can choose which one to boot. And in the case of a UEFI BIOS you can choose which mode to boot.
