    Is there any way to disable booting from USB on this motherboard? All I can find is disabling USB 2.0, but that doesn't help me because I use USB 2.0 in Windows.

    My problem is when I plug my iPod in and boot my computer it will hang at the ASUS screen, trying to boot from my iPod, but it can't. It just pisses me off because I have to either disable USB 2.0 in the BIOS which causes it not to work in Windows, or I have to unplug my iPod which requires me going under my desk (very hard...). I don't see anything related to USB in the boot order, so it must be set first.

    EDIT: I think I found my solution about 30 seconds after posting this, but oh well maybe someone else will need this... I'm going to try disabling Legacy USB Support tomorrow and see if it works.

    in the bios you have to find boot order, or boot priority, set it as 1. Hard Drive 2. CD 3. Floppy.

    What would that accomplish besides setting my hard drive to boot first, CD drive second, and floppy drive third?
