My HP Prodesk 400 g6 MT desktop is not showing "Boot from USB" option in Boot Menu

HP Recommended
Prodesk 400 g6 MT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi Folks!

I'm trying to install Ubuntu along with windows 10. However, system's boot menu doesn't give me Boot From the USB option. Even after trying updating my BIOS and switching among Legacy enable/disable options but all in vain. 

 

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

@HCUD 

I'm sorry, but HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled.

IF you replace that with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.

If you are using Ubuntu, go here: https://ubuntuforums.org/

Good Luck
