I have a self built desktop with the following

Gigabyte F2A68HM-H MB, AMD A6-7400K, Radeon R5 graphics, 6 comput cores 2C + 4G 3.50 GHz, Seagate 2TB Barra Cuda SATA 6 g. running windows 10 pro with the insiders updates. my problem is this I have just finished installing my os again after my computer started shutting down and coming back on again and the last time it shut down I tried taking it back to a better running point but that had no effect so I went ahead and tried refreshing windows totally and all that did was mess it up worse so I formatted the computer which i had to change the boot order because the cd/dvd rom would not start without doing so, I managed to get windows installed again but now I'm getting >> Checking Media Presence.... >> Media Present.... >>>Start PKE over IPv6.. Pke-E21: Remote boot cancelled. Then it takes m,y computer a long few minutes to start. Can anyone tell me the right booting sequence in my bios? I've looked all over the net and can't find it and what manual I have is a joke. This is the first computer I've built with UEFI's  in the Bios and its all strange to me, I've built computers before and am use to the normal boot from HDD or CD rom etc.

Thanks for any help you may give me this is driving me nuts...

Well, the PKE means that it is trying to boot from your network.  Even with UEFI there should be something somewhere where you change the boot order.

 

Just so I'm clear, you have the one 2TB hard drive and the optical drive, right?

 

Your boot sequence can pretty much be what you want since if it can't boot from something it will skip to the next item on the list.

 

Did the machine boot to Windows after the install?

 

If so, you can use Hard Drive, USB, Optical Drive, Network.

 

If that works and you're good with it fine.  If not you can change it to USB, Optical Drive, Hard Drive, Network.  If this doesn't work switch back to the Hard Drive being first and know you'll need to change it if you need to reload the machine again.

As Kilroy posted, you can set the boot order in any order you want and the computer will search for the boot device which contains the operating system.  But you will pay the price of a slower startup if the ssd/hdd isn't in the first device location in the boot order.  The only time you should need to change this would be when you need to boot from a bootable disc.

 

Tapping the Del key as soon as you press the power button should ope the UEFI/BIOS.

 

If you look at the image below you will see where the boot order is and its options.
