Working with an ASUS K42F Notebook. Have a need to boot to a Kaspersky USB Rescue Disk. I find no apparent boot path to a USB drive. I do see the UEFI feature which is supposed to be the successor to BIOS. Perhaps there is a solution within this feature. Any solution in this regard is good enough for now. This is a Windows 7 home premium machine.

Seeking some wisdom on how to how one can get this machine to point to USB

Also, the setup utility is American Megatrends ver. 1.28.1119. I would ask if there might be any specific benefit to an upgrade or is it mostly hype.

Setup screen images are uploaded to:

What exactly are your trying to do? Why are you attempting to boot from a USB?

try pressing f9 or esc on start up, that will hopefully take you to a boot selector and try to boot from usb-zip

here is a good usb boot creator, either select something on the list or use unlisted at the bottom

Greetings:

The query was posted precisely because I recently discovered pendrive linux. The setup utility on this windows 7 machine does NOT offer booting to USB as an option. The machine has both BIOS and UEFI features and I seek someone who can offer some substantive gudance on the UEFI features. It is an American Megatrends product [ver 1.28.1119] and they offer absolutely no documentation. It was my hope the the link to images of the utility might provide. So again, it is the ability to control booting using all of the features of this machine that I seek.

if it does NOT offer USB booting via through BIOS or an F9 or F12 option (etc.) then your MoBo doesn't support it, and you are DEAD in the water. and if it doesn't offer a BIOS USB feature, then forget about UEFI.
You claim "The machine has both BIOS and UEFI features" but is that in windows or in the BIOS setup too? You are NOT specific.
Try this man (there are a couple of manuals:
