How to boot a PC to use the HP PC HARDWARE DIAGNOSTICS, when the PC does not boot

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My PC won't start and shows a B1InitializeLibrary failed 0xc00000bb error. 

I search the internet but the solution proposed involve BIOS. My HD is UEFI, so i cannot access the BIOS. By pressing esc, i reach the startup menu, and then i can select diagnostic.


The diagnostic tells me that the Boot test has failed, with an error code 3F0

I am trying to use the HP PC HARDWARE DIAGNOSTICS, and i downloaded the sp101423 ( to be able to run the diagnostics. I installed the soft on a USB Key, but the installation does not make it a bootable USB Key. 


So what should I do to boot and execute the diagnostics from the USB Key?


Thanks for the help.
