Well... I've boot it using a shortcut (ESC key as far as I remember or F8). I mean it's not a persistent setting in BIOS. I'll try setting boot drive permanently in BIOS. Btw, it's desktop Asus motherboard and it has UEFI BIOS, not a usual one.

Regards,
Vans.

Seems that bios informs loader (I mean boot0) about drive but loader itself can't proceed, like it can't access the drive/partition. If the drive is plugged in the USB 2 the boot proceeds ok. I don't know if it is a real issue. It may be a motherboard problem. I don't have another hardware with USB 3 to test.
