How to boot my HP Pavilion Elite HPE-130fr from a USB Key ?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Elite HPE-130fr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello there,


I was able to find the solution to my question, hence I place hereafter the answer in case someone has the same question (This can be useful for example if you need to make a repair of your Windows using a Windows Recovery USB Key) :

 

1) You need first to insert the USB key in one of the USB plug of your PC.

 

2) Then boot your PC and immediately hit F10 (better to hit this key several times until the message "entering BIOS configuration" is displayed).

 

3) In the BIOS screens go to the page of the start-up menu:
- Start-up
- Start-up priority
- Hard disk priority boot group
- Find the line of the name of your USB key and move it to the top
- Save and restart your PC

 

When your repair is complete, do not forget to come back to the BIOS screens and to place back the original start-up device to its former position. 

 

Hope this helps.

Guy.

there is more to it than that but thanks.

yes boot order must have USB first or use the boot on the fly hot key , no matter what. (seen  in the manual)

if PC is UEFI PC and enabled fully  this kills cd or usb boots dead. (special steps need be taken here)

the PC USB ports must not be disabled in BIOS as some PC have that and USB boot allowed , port by port selected.

some PC with USB2 and USB3 motherboards (transitional) do not boot from USB 3 at all.

that I think gets them all.

if PC is 2020+PC with UEFI class III  , only allowed, the steps are super complex (legacy gone).  and covered at HP.com

 

NO warranty answers by me.
