1) You don't have to change the "1st boot device." Just change the allowable boot devices so that USB is included. Then, during the BIOS startup, press a key to bring up the boot menu, then select the USB device. That key may be F2, F12 or even Escape, depending on your BIOS version. That way, it boots from the hard drive normally, and never tries to boot from the USB unless you tell it to with an F-key.

2) Also, check the "allow legacy USB" setting in the BIOS. Some (all?) USB keys cannot boot if legacy is disabled.
