Please do the following.  This will provide me with the name of the BIOS manufacturer and its version.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

dc3, if OP's computer is similar to mine concerning BIOS, OP might have to have a DVD [anything readable] in the cd-dvd drive before BIOS will allow a change.  With material in the internal and/or external dc-dvd drives - I can change my BIOS order.

 

Addendum: I had to convert desktop from UEFI into Legacy/BIOS, and that left me with that scenario.  I'm also talking about USB boot devices along with aforementioned cd-dvd devices.  My laptops don't have this problem; however, my desktop has Option 1, Option 2, Option 3 under the boot order section.

It's not common, but it gave me a little head scratching first time I ran into it. Of course if you always have the habit of having the CD/DVD in the drive as you set the boot order, you don't discover if a board has that behavior.

Since I don't allow discs to remain in the optical drive I see why I've never personally experienced this.  This is a new twist I hadn't heard of before.

I think only some of the odder proprietary brands did it, no idea why they thought it would be a good idea.

Boot into the BIOS and go to the Advance Boot Settings to change the boot order.

 

At the bottom of the BIOS page there will be instructions for making changes.
