Asus X670E-E BIOS version 2007 (BIOS BUG) boot order change not working

rcarlos243

On the latest BIOS version 2007 for Asus X670E-E, there is a BIOS BUG.

Changing boot order is not detected as a change setting and is impossible to save.

This means if you have multiple drives with multiple OS installed, it is not possible to save the change of the boot order.

Hello, @rcarlos243 

May I ask from which version did you update to 2007, and did you clear CMOS before starting the setup after the update?
If you roll back to version 1905 or update again in 2007, does the issue resolve?
If these steps do not resolve the issue, could you provide a complete video recording of the problem and the following hardware specifications to help us better understand your setup?
- recording steps: BIOS mainpage and boot order settings, saving and rebooting, showing that the BIOS does not show the saved settings and cannot boot according to the set order
- SSD/HDD, indicating the OS version and OS build for each
- the images of BIOS mainpage and all the manually adjusting items in BIOS
- the brand and model name of the CPU, GPU, RAM, and PSU currently installed

Thank you.

sharing complete hardware info & software config details will help us better understand the issue 🙂

Hello, @favoyang 

Thank you for promptly sharing the context and related images.
Could you also confirm the relevant hardware and software specifications mentioned above?

- SSD/HDD/storage device, currently installed slot or port location, and indicating the OS version and OS build for each
- the images of BIOS mainpage and all the manually adjusting items in BIOS
- the brand and model name of the GPU, RAM, and PSU currently installed

This will allow us to further investigate and verify the issue.

Thank you.

Indeed for BIOS 2007, the boot order is not detected as a change setting. But I can still save it and the boot order has been applied.

Hello, @favoyang 

Based on your description, settings made in the BIOS are not saved, but the booting behavior changes according to your manual adjustments.
Could you refer to my previous comment to share your hardware and software specs and record a video demonstrating the steps?
Recording steps: Start recording> Clear CMOS, boot, and enter BIOS> Confirm information of BIOS mainpage> Adjust boot device priority, save, and reboot> Check if the system boots according to the set priority> Reboot and enter BIOS again to verify if the boot device priority remains as manually set.
This will help us submit the issue and consult the relevant members.

Thank you!

I mean the BIOS changes (the boot order) have been saved. However the saving dialog can not detect it as a change and prompts a wrong message.

I will provide a few screenshots instead, good enough to confirm this issue.

1. I have four startup devices, the top two are local drives and the last two are USB sticks with ventoy.

2. I changed the order to move the last two to the top, so I can boot from the USB stick.

3. Try to save the change to BIOS, and it prompts "You have not made any changes to the BIOS settings". Let's save it anyway.

4. The machine reset and boot into the USB stick (ventoy).

@rcarlos243 Based on my test. You can save it, even the BIOS can not detect it as a change. It will work anyway.

@Jiaszzz_ROG I hope this helps.

Hello, @rcarlos243 and @favoyang 

We apologize for the delayed response.
After our internal verification, we were unable to replicate the issue you described in the video.
Regarding the message "You have not made any changes to the BIOS settings," after adjusting the boot device order and pressing <F10> to save is expected, as adjusting the boot order is not considered a BIOS settings update.

Thank you.
