Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Your PC is capable of booting to USB Windows installation media.

Tap "ESC' at boot.

Select the "Boot Menu" from the "Startup Menu".

Select the USB Windows installation media under UEFI Boot Sources.

Hi, @Grandadturk

 

Go into the BIOS, enable legacy mode, and disable secure boot.

 

Then see if you can boot from the legacy USB device...

 

See this link for the settings to change.

Hi,

 

I use the up or down arrow keys on the keyboard to select the correct UEFI boot device. Then press "Enter".

This has always worked for me.
