Ran into problems last night where keyboard and mouse stop working. I had created a recovery disk using a ScanDisk USB Flash Drive and win 10 but I was not able to get the Bios to recognize  the USB drive. So I installed Win 7 from recovery DVDS.

Can someone walk me through the process of getting Bios to see USB drive as a boot option?.....thanks


This is what I did:                                                       What I added


1    Add boot option                                                    Flash Drive  


2    Select Filesystem                                                  ScanDisk\HD(Part1,Sigoooooooo) 

                                                                        This what the bios recognized when I selected (select Filesystem)



3    Path for boot option                                           I wrote what is above  ScanDisk\HD ..........

The bios battery probably died and it lost it's settings. Check if USB is enabled and then change boot settings. If you have a EUFI bios, then you need to turn off secure boot and enable legacy boot support.


Check the bios battery voltages within the bios. Needs to be 3volt.
