Why is this HP Photosmart 7525 printer installed as a bootable device in my system BIOS?

HP Recommended
Photosmart 7525
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This system is built from scratch from all new componants. I've had booting issues from time to time, and noticed that this HP Photosmart 7525 printer is listed as a bootable device in the system's BIOS.

 

Why the heck would a printer need to be listed as a bootable device?

 

Thanks,

Chris

You should call the system bios people and ask them.

More looking around seems to indicate it's because the printer has a card reader, and a USB port.

 

I don't know if installing the HP printer driver puts it there, or if the BIOS finds it after the driver is installed., though.

That may be possible. Just ignore it.
