    Question Asus FX504 BIOS boot issue

    I recently bought an Asus FX504 laptop which I wanted to upgrade the HDD + Intel Optane with my SSD.

    After removing both the hardware above and installing my SSD, I am entering the BIOS each time I turn on the laptop.

    The SSD has an OS already from a previous laptop, and I also have a bootable USB pen with Windows 10 files so I can reinstall a fresh copy of Windows.

    I have read people having the same struggle but I don't seem to find a solution.

    Things I have tried/to be considered:

    - Disabled Secure Boot and Fast Boot however I am still unable to either boot from my HD or USB pen. (Unable to locate an option for CSM in "Boot" menu which I read should be enabled.)

    - The Boot menu is empty so I am seemingly unable to change the boot order.

    - Removed CMOS battery for a minute.

    - Pressing Esc shows no boot options to select from.

    - USB pen is fine as its being detected and bootable by another laptop.

    - Both SSD and USB is being detected in the BIOS main screen.

    This is driving me mad! Any help is much appreciated. (Pictures to follow I hope

    Goal: Boot from USB drive to re-install Windows.

    Setup: Laptop: Asus FX504GD-E4673T BIOS: American Megatrends 312 EXISTING Hard Drive: HHD + Intel Optane NEW Hard Drive: Samsung 850 EVO
