When I run the blue screen(BIOS) and go to Settings boot can not find an option that allows me to change the boot to USB Drives.
How do I solve the problem?
I am sure there is not a problem with the hardware, but the problem in the operating system.


my laptob dell inspiron 5323



Thank you

Ah center text!!! Please don't do that.

I suggest honing those google skills and then reading this thread. http://en.community.dell.com/supp...87625.aspx

As mentioned by LR, the last post at the link he posted may have some good info for you, but for starters, with regards to you not finding the USB boot option, you need to make some changes in the bios first, like disabling secure boot, or if there is an option for legacy, choose that too, and if there is one for fast boot, disable that one.
Once you get the bios accepting legacy, you'll find the USB boot option.

^^ That and I think while you can boot to a USB drive (usually by hitting F12 at boot on most computers) I don't think you can actually set in BIOS the USB to be a default boot to device. You can change the order in which items boot or are checked for being bootable, but I don't think you can tell the computer to directly boot the USB at startup automatically (unless that's changed on some newer PC's).

Turn off what Rocky said, then try tapping F12 when the machine is booting up, it should give you boot options.

One thing for sure is that it varies from brand to brand and model to model so we have no way of knowing the exact bios options, without having one in hand or owning one (Googling your particular model can help).
In general, one will find "Secure Boot" in just about all Win 8 laptops, after that, it gets murky as to what options will be there and how they word things.
With regards to the USB issue, it has been my experience that after secure boot is disabled (and legacy enabled if there is such an option) that if the bootable device is plugged in before going into the bios, then it will appear in the boot list.
If the bootable USB stick is NOT plugged in, the option will not appear.

One other thing, Making USB flash drives bootable can be quite difficult. Not because the machine won't boot just because of what you have to do to make the drive itself bootable. You can't just throw an ISO image on it like you would burn a CD. If the computer has an optical drive you might go that route.

There's more to it than just having bootable media like your USB stick or a DVD.
YOU HAVE TO make the correct changes in the bios first.

Plug in your bootable USB stick or DVD, then follow instructions below.

You're getting close.
Is the bootable USB stick definitely functional?
Can you try it on another computer?
Is the USB stick plugged into the computer before you turn it on and go to the bios?
In your first picture, the 2nd option from the top is "legacy boot".
Have you clicked on it?

Nope.
Disable "Secure Boot" and click on "Load legacy option rom" and see what that does for you.
