Change BIOS settings when PC detects USB

My current arch installation is on an SSD in an enclosure that I connect to my PC via a USB-C to USB-B connector. Is there any way for me to make it so that my PC automatically detects the drive, and puts it at the top of the boot order? (So I can have the PC boot to Windows when the drive isn't attached, and grub (Arch) when it is attached.)

If it's not broken, you're not trying hard enough.

Re: Change BIOS settings when PC detects USB

Make sure Fast Boot in firmware is disabled, as that delays the detection of usb devices until an OS has started .

Other then that, what you want is default behaviour .
Entries in boot order for devices that are not present will be skipped.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
