Hi, Im trying to run Memtest86+ and Ill also need to update the BIOS but I cant get this board to boot to the FAT32 USB 2.0 thumb drive I have connected directly to the back of the board. I should note that Ive used this same exact USB on my Striker II Extreme for updating the BIOS and it worked perfectly, so its not the stick.

I also made the following changes to the Bios so the USB thumb drive would be recognized:
-USB Support --> Full Initialization
-Boot Priority - Boot Option 1 --> Generic Flash Disc (980MB)

Its seeing the drive there but it isnt booting to the MemTest86+ (Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7)

Ive also asked on the AsusTek forums but havent received any repsonses.

Any feedback is appreciated from people familiar with Asus UEFI Bios

Is the drive connected to a USB 2.0 or to a 3.0 port?
