BIOS - UEFI/Legacy Setting (USB/CD)

Hi there,

Is there a way to get the computer to boot from a USB or CD (instead of booting Windows 10 by default) when "OPROMs"/"Boot Filter" in the BIOS settings is set to UEFI mode? When everything is set to UEFI in the BIOS, there doesn't seem to be any way to boot to a USB/CD, so I must set the "OPROMs"/"Boot Filter" to "Legacy" mode to get USB/CD to boot. While setting to Legacy mode let's me start the boot from the USB/CD, the program on my USB/CD stops working once it detects Legacy mode is on and instructs me to reset my bios back to UEFI mode to operate, but then my USB/CD program won't start. I've tried resetting minor items in the BIOS so see if that would let be change my booting options, but it hasn't worked out for me.

So basically, I need to boot from a USB/CD when the BIOS is set to UEFI. Do you have any ideas how I can do this on my computer?
