Booting from USB port

HP Recommended
Pavilion all-in-One 27-n110
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The OS is not working; initially boots to the sign on screen.  Then after sign-on the OS freezes and the spinning blue circle appears ad infinitum.  Sometimes it doesn't get that far.  Got an new version of OS on USB from Microsoft, but cannot get the BIOS to allow booting from the USB.  Can anyone tell me how to boot from the USB port?  Thanks

First need to ask if you are getting into the BIOS to check if the USB drive is recognized?

Which USB ports is the USB drive plugged into? back or bottom?

Also - did MS send this to you or did you make it from the Media Creation tool?

I'm not an HP employee.

See if you can boot from the USB port as follows...


Go into the BIOS, enable legacy mode and disable secure boot.   See this link for more info on the BIOS settings to change.


Then plug the Windows USB installer into a USB port, turn on or restart the PC, tap the ESC key to get the menu of options.


Select the F9 boot options menu, and from that, select the USB flash drive.


Then press the Enter key.
