Solved How do I turn off the BIOS boot override on save tab?

Specs: Windows
MY BIOS is tabbed, so to speak. Under one "tab" is boot options. I go here and change boot order to:
1. Live USB
2. HDD

On the last tab, the SAVE Settings tab, there is a "Boot Override" which is unchangeable. How do I change that to stop the machine from automatically reverting to HDD as #1 in boot order?

I have an ASUS GL771JW, running Win 8.1, motherboard is an American Megatrends

I assume it's UEFI. There is some useful bed time reading here:

Thanks. I had forgotten about the new UEFI rules. With Secure Boot disabled, and USB Flash selected as #1 in Boot Order, I let the boot process run through fully a couple times, and came back to the BIOS. Each time, Secure Boot is still disabled, USB is selected as #1 in boot order, but "Boot Override" lists the HDD first, and is non-configurable. Scratching my head over this one.

All because I want to run a second OS from USB to see if I want or like it....

"Boot Override" is, as it's name suggests, a way to override the normal boot sequence. It does this only on this boot and doesn't change the default boot sequence. It's just an alternative to the boot menu that you can access with a function key on bootup.

Your BIOS is behaving as it is intended to.
