Can I install windows from my motherboard USB ports? My USB 3.0 port on my motherboard has plastic from a cheap cord stuck in it, tried everything to get it out, don't wanna break anything. Is there anyway I can just use the USBs from my motherboard or will they not read?

USB should read just fine from the MB or case ports.
Plastic stuck? Is the port damages?
Bought a really cheap case years ago, the USB cable's plastic got stuck in the motherboard, cord came out. Haven't been able to find a fix but honestly can work around it. Tried pulling it out many different ways.

Okay. As ling as the pins for the USB connector aren't grounding out you should be good.
Also, be sure to select the correct settings in BIOS for your Windows install. (UEFI, legacy, secure boot, etc.)

What is the difference in all of the settings for the install? I've installed like 3 times before but never had noticed/chose any of those settings. Only have chose the USB to boot first and went from there.
