Hi guys, I just bought a new laptop that has no OS. I prepared a bootable USB stick with Windows 10 on it,and I was wondering if I need to enter the bios settings the first time I power it. Can I just plug in the USB and it will automatically boot from it?

If the hard drive definitely contains no OS then yes, you'll be fine to just plug the stick in and power on.
