    New firmware states you can do the above.

    How do I implement this?

    Looks like going into the UEFI screen you can change the boot order from SSD only (The Default) to
    USB - SSD,
    Network, USB, SSD
    USB, Network, SSD
    Network, SSD

    Selecting one of those with secure boot enabled would look for Secure Boot files on the alternate locations before Booting to the SSD.

    I suspect that if you use the Advanced Device Security and disabled Network Boot or USB then it would override booting from the device in the Alternate order.

    Obviously you then need to enable the Administrator Password to protect your configuration.

    I changed the option to USB -> SSD, hit enter, went to Exit Setup, hit Enter, and accepted the change. Now, when I stick a USB drive into the USB port (Macrium Reflect or MemTest 6 in my case ) and either (a) restart or (b) boot from a shutdown by pressing the power button, the USB stick is booted directly with no further intervention. Great.

    So, it would appear to be solved. Marked as such.
