    If you're running in UEFI then you will see the Windows Boot Manager in the boot options, rather than a hard drive model. You set the hard drive boot priority in the BBS priority options.

    snipestech, the purpose of resetting to Defaults in the BIOS is to clear the CMOS settings between BIOS updates, as sometimes the new BIOS will have trouble reading the settings of the previous BIOS correctly.

    Resetting to Defaults sets up the new BIOS with compatible Default settings as a base to configure BIOS options, like the ones you set previously - you have to manually set them again in each BIOS page for each option you had previously set.

    You probably cleared the options you had set to accommodate your SSD. It looks like you figured this out and set the options back

    The PXE option is for booting from a network install server, and has nothing to do with booting off local devices. Here are some nice descriptions of PXE booting - I use it to install Linux/Solaris/testing.

    I guess it doesn't do much harm at home, and even in a PXE boot environment it won't do anything, except show up in the local boot server logs - with your MAC address show as looking for a boot server - the boot/install server won't actually respond to the PXE requests from your laptop unless it's unique MAC address is configure into the boot/install server - but it is completely unnecessary so you might as well disable PXE booting in the G750 BIOS
