How can I reboot from a USB drive on a Zbook.

HP Recommended
Zbook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I like to re-image my PC. Therefore I prepared a USB stick. When I try to start the Zbook I type in ESC until I get the into the Starup Menu. There I see 3 optenins

a) UEFI Windows Boot Manager

b) UEFI - SANandisk Ultra ....

c) Boot from file

I tried them all but I was always rebooted by the hard disk but not what I needed on the USB stick.

 

What did I wrong?

 

Thanks in advance for any help

 

Heinz

Hello

 

BIOS setting manual is this : http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06399361

in case you want to learn more about it.

 

Press F10 during PC boot , several time , until you enter in BIOS Setting interface

Then select Advanced Menu

Then Boot Options Menu

you find USB Storage boot. it MUST be checked

 

In Secure Boot Configuration Menu

you MUST have:  Legacy Support Disable and Secure Boot Enable

 

Zbook 15 G4 should boot if the USB Key contains valid Windows 10 installation files, either FAT32 or NTFS in EUFI mode.

How did you created the Windows 10 installation USB Key ?

 

bye
