Hi, thank you for having a look.

To be more clear about this issue:

I had Linux Mint before switching to Ubuntu 17.10 few days ago - no dual boot, just Ubuntu

I can access BIOS (either via f12 or one-key recover mode)

I can change all BIOS settings, but the issue is that when rebooting, the BIOS keeps the old settings so the machine keeps rebooting in safe-mode. Thus usb is not recognized. (bios, boot menu)

before installing Ubuntu 17.10, USB was present as third option under the sub-section Legacy.
Now it's not recognized.

I hope this make things clearer.

The USB option is not present obviously even when pressing f12 at startup (for selecting the boot source)

Ubuntu 17.10 is working properly for me, and within Ubuntu USB ports work properly.

Let us know if you need more details, thanks
