I'm trying to install windows 10 after a reformat but running into a problem with my boot order. Instead of beginning the install from the usb I made or from a disk I always get the message that there is no OS installed and to connect a drive with an OS. I can get to the boot order in the bios but my choices there don't seem to matter or take effect. No matter what I choose it is always stuck on HD first. Is there any way around this? or to force my bios to boot from USB or disk drive?

Additional details are needed.  Particularly what is the make and model of your computer and what version of UEFI/BIOS is running on it?

I'm not sure there is a make and model number for the computer, it's a pre-built that I got on newegg I think. The bios says: Award Software International, inc. XV FSb, 2/27/2013

If it's pre-built it has to have been pre-built by some company.

 

In any case, the easiest thing you can do to provide the information that those who wish to help might need is to take a Speccy snapshot and post the URL for it in your next message.  Here are downloadable step-by-step instructions for doing this:

Is Secure Boot enabled? If so you may have to change it to Legacy
