I had an issue where my HDD broke, so I bought a replacement and have replaced it in the PC.

The new HDD works perfectly fine and has passed diagnostic checks.

However when I try to boot from a USB, even with Secure Boot off and Legacy on it still says:

”ERROR: Boot disk not detected or Boot disk failed”

(Direct wording may not be the same but you get the point)

I simply do not know why this isn’t working.

Assuming the flash drive is working and the USB selection for boot source actually shows the USB as selected. then it most likely is not a bootable USB flash drive.  The other possibility is that there is a choice between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. 

If the flash drive is proven bootable by try it on another PC, then pick a USB 2.0 port.  Since the model number of the PC is not given and what is on the flash drive , that is about the extent of the help I can give.
