Let's establish if your PC can even boot from USB devices. Plug in the USB stick and power on your PC. When you get to the HP Splash screen, then start tapping the ESC key to bring up a boot selection menu. If you don't see the USB device then your PC doesn't support booting from a USB device.
If your PC does supporting booting from a USB device then read this MS posted article.
You still have the option of booting Windows Defender from a CD or DVD.
