After installing a blank SSD on my HP t610 (Windows 7) the boot menu doesnt have a usb option.

HP Recommended
HP t610 PLUS WW Thin Client
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I wanted to swap the original 16GB internal flash hard drive of this PC  with a 120GB kingston SDD. I believe the SSD is connected but when pressing F9 at startup there is no boot from the USB. I was assuming i would intall a operating system with a USB boot drive. Can someone help me?


My system:

Windows 7 Professional (32 Bit)

(I have 2 usb sticks with either the same windows version (to intall) or a linux mint 17 (64-bit). Whichever is easier. I have used these usb drives before to install a new OS so i know they are ok


Bios: K30 V01.16

Product Name HP t610 PLUS WW Thin Client

SKU Number: B8D09AA

Processor Type: AMD G-T56N processor

According to the HP specs, your model PC comes witn Win7 EMBEDDED -- which is not a standard retail or OEM version of Windows.

It could very well be that since this is a custom OS, there is also code that requires the original storage media to be there for it to work.

Perhaps someone will come along with different advice, but barring that, I think you're stuck with the original storage media.
