When press F9 to seelct the option it won't allow me. Please any clue. I have an image thumb drive i created whic used in imaging all out PCs. i have doen so many  before but i have issue with this desktop because i can find the USB as an option in the legacy boot section to select.

I am not a HP representative. But I'ave had similar problem before on my hp laptop.


I fixed the issue by enabling Legacy Boot from my BIOS setting. Make sure you have that setting set to Enable for your system.


I found this post with another person that had your problem with a smiliar system. Try out the solution there
