Default Can't boot from USB stick, help!

Guys, help! It might not be linux specific but I just cannot figure this out with my 9npa+ ultra board

I am perfectly able to boot Gparted (a live linux partitioning app) off my 2 USB sticks at work (some MSI nf2 mobo) but not at home.

I have just updated to the latest BIOS but the system always tells me either "Invalid system disk" or "Remove disks or other media" when I try to easy-boot off USB, depending on which stick I use. One being a USB Bar device and one a Flash Disk. Both work perfectly fine on the older board.

Please, can anyone help me out? Have you been able to boot off USB sticks with nf4-based boards?

Thanks a lot.
