When I press F11 while the ASRock Splash screen is showing, a boot menu screen comes up from which you can select which of all possible drives you will boot from. If instead you go to the ASRock UEFI Setup Utility, you get the opportunity to put all the possible drives in order (Option 1, 2...etc.). I'm guessing this means you can avoid selecting a drive to boot from every time you start up your computer. Below this, opposite an icon that looks like an open book and the label ?D/DVD ROM Drive BBS priority??is the opportunity to put CD/DVD drives in order. A similar icon and the title ?ard Drive BBS priority??is the opportunity to put the hard drives in order. These last few choices seem redundant. Can anyone tell me how (and why) these various menus are to be used? Finally, further down is the title ?CI ROM Priority??opposite which you can toggle between ?egacy ROM?? and ?FI Compatible ROM?? How do I respond to this?

Press Delete and go into bios. Go to Advance Bios and click on Boot Tab. On this screen you can priorities your first boot, second boot, harddrive or CD/DVD drive and whatever order you want at everyboot.

F11 boot menu is meant for changing what you want to boot to as a one time only boot.

PCI ROM Priority should probably left at default if everything boots fine. EFI is a boot partition of an OS installed on a GPT drive as opposed to MBR (legacy). If you see Boot Manager (harddrive identifier) in your boot order selection than you have a EFI on this harddisk and unless to did something weird you have an OS installed on this harddrive.
