Albatron PX865PE Lite (V 2.0) booting from USB

Just a small note, for this motherboard which has a tricky boot sequence selection.

In general if you have multiple boot devices connected on the same option group (e.g. Hard Disk, which includes USB sticks) you must disable all but the one you wish to boot from, boot once and then reboot and enable the rest.

That is the motherboard will choose the last known bootable device.

For instance you may have a SATA bootable drive and an IDE bootable drive. You usually boot from the IDE but now you want to change to the SATA one. Simply disable the IDE drive (set None in BIOS), boot, reboot change the option back (to Auto for instance) and it will now boot from the SATA always.
