Does the motherboard from this desktop support boot from usb?

HP Recommended
HP pavilion slimline s5398d

I am trying to perform a fresh install of Win 7 from a bootable USB.


Understand that this motherboard is old. My question is whether it supports boot from USB? Because i don't see that option under the boot menu sequence.

I just answer so as not to leave you alone!
Obviously this product is at the end of support at hp, therefore we no longer have access to the documents
Note, even if this was the case, there is not always enough detail on the bios options.
If you have the motherboard model (hp name), I would be happy to try to find something!
Anyway, if you can't find an option it's probably not possible ..
A simple test, placed the usb key (being certain that it works well), then started the computer
press the esc key several times, this often allows you to have the boot options
What do you have here?
