I have a question about a proper bios setting after a new build of mine.  I put in an NVME OS drive, an NVME media cache drive, an SSD media drive and a HDD storage drive.  Well, it is a new build with UEFI and after realizing the importance after reading formatting them in GPT. 

My question is about the bios section where it starts with Windows 10 Features.  I have read many articles on this with many conflicting each other.  What would you do and why?

Windows 10 Features -

Other OS

Windows 10

Windows 10 WHQL

What should I set as default?

CSM Support - enable or disable  If I disable then it changes the following items and they are gone.

 

Storage Boot Option Control

Disabled

Legacy

UEFI only

 

Other PCI Device Rom Priority

Disable

Legacy

UEFI only

 

Network Stack dis or enabled

 

What do people on here do?  Thanks.

You forgot to mention what operating system you are using.

No Other OS. It's either Windows 10 or Windows 10 WHQL. No idea what that latter really means. I'd put Windows 10.

 

CSM Support can be disabled.

So Windows 10 without WHQL is right choice.
