Will my computer boot from my usb recovery drive if cd is first on booting order. If I change the order in Bios will it effect how my computer boots each time I use it?

 

Thanks. Robert

If you made a recovery drive you should be able to boot from it should the need arise.  However, if you put the CD drive first in the boot order it does not affect booting from a USB drive.  The USB drive and the CD drive are two different things.

 

If I change the order in Bios will it effect how my computer boots each time I use it?

If you change the order in the BIOS it shouldn't normally affect how your computer boots unless another bootable medium is present.  For example, if you changed the order so that your CD drive comes before you internal hard drive and a bootable CD is present in the CD drive, then it will boot from the CD drive first.  However, if no bootable CD is present, then the computer will simply skip the CD drive and go to the next bootable device in the list.

 

NOTE: None of the above takes into account whether you are using BIOS or UEFI firmware.
