 You have a very limited view point of what is USB problem. I don't see 
 it as a bios problem. For sure the problem is in the boot0cfg code and 
 for sure IT IS A USB PROBLEM. Now if you want to change this to am 
 different group then you are welcome to do so. But as the original 
 reporter of the PR I don't have the authority to make that change.
