Hi Arshad,

Instead of changing the boot sequence each time, please load the BIOS settings to defaults and check. To change the BIOS settings to defaults:

1. Power on/restart the computer.
2. When Dell Logo appears start tapping the F2 key.
3. When the BIOS screen appears press the F9 key.
4. Confirm to load the defaults.
5. Press F10 to save and exit.
6. Check if the boot order is corrected now.

Do reply with results.
