It took a l-o-n-g time to learn that more than 2 USB devices attached during boot-up would prevent power-on from completing normally. But now the keyboard & mouse occupy those 2 slots (in rear) which means that adding a flash drive will probably cause the power on to fail again. Hopefully Dell has finally fixed the bug with a BIOS update.
(1) is it recommended to update current BIOS with a newer one ?
(2) if so, how can it be done to minimize possibility of new bugs ?
ps: the boot order in BIOS was recently changed to read USB "floppy" drive (i assume this means flash drive) first to allow loading of Windows Defender Offline (WDO) but the flash drive was ignored during boot.
