On various Windows operating systems, how do I set up BIOS (or controller) to use only a boot loader installed on fixed media?

This is all the information that I have on this.

Thank you,

By disabling everything else on the bootable devices list in the bios. All current bioses allow for this method. If for limiting the OS for booting only from fixed media, that is not an option as it would take away the possibility to recover the OS from removable media. This is by design.

Do not assume anything
