Just FYI... I have the latest BIOS flashed. Version 0068 from December 1, 2014.
Sorry guys. I just answered my own question.
It appears that changing the boot order correctly must be done via the "Classic Mode" in the BIOS and not through Visual Mode. It would be nice to have this bug fixes in a future BIOS update as well as USB device enumeration fixes, such as fixing the annoying bootloader bug that occurs whenever a USB drive (based on a conventional spinning platter hard drive) takes awhile to initialize and doesn't do so fast enough.
I am sorry you are having this problem but thank you for letting us know about this issue and the workaround for it.
I will pass the feedback to the corresponding department.
