I'm trying to change BIOS to boot from a bootable USB Key, what settings should I use? My mobo is Intel's D850MV AAA56423-301 BIOS is Intel's MV85010A.86A.0011.p05.0111141737 11/14/2001
Quiet boot and Intel Rapid BIOS boot are enabled, so are Scan User Flash Area and USB Boot. Boot device priority is set to Removable Dev first followed respectively by CD Rom, Hard Drive and finally 1BA 4.0.1Q Slot 0208 (whatever that is). My USB KEY is bootable because I was able to boot my laptop from it.

get to the bios boot section
( on starting the computer hold down the delete key until the bios screen shows
in that section you will see boot preference
organize the sequence that the unit will boot from save and esc
so sata hard drive =1
external hard dive =3 etc
Insert your USB jump drive into a USB port on the computer containing the bootable program. Copy the information to your jump drive, then insert the drive into a USB port on the computer you wish to boot the program from.
Power on the computer. When the computer begins displaying its startup information, hit the key indicated on screen to enter the computer's BIOS (the "F1" or "Delete" keys are commonly used to access the BIOS).
Browse through the menu options in the BIOS to locate the computer's startup and booting options to locate the "CMOS" menu, which is where you'll have the option to set which devices will boot at startup.
Browse though the list of bootable option---they'll be ordered as "First Boot Device," "Second Boot Device" and so on. Set the USB jump drive as the first bootable option---your BIOS may refer to the drive as a "USB Removable Floppy Disk."
Save and exit the BIOS. When your computer restarts, your program will boot first before your operating system.
On page 47 it states F2 is used to get into the bios, press repeatedly while booting so you don't miss the window, and of course check you keyboard, it should flash the caps,num, and scroll lock lights on boot.
"The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins."
That is from the manual for the board, instead of reinstalling Windows you may as well just change the product key on one of the installations to your other copy.
