Pavilion 10 TS Won't Boot from USB_DVD

HP Recommended
Pavilion 10 TS
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

This laptop has a 1GB CPU and 2 GB RAM. Factory Windows 8.1-64 Bit. I want to install Windows 10-32 Bit.

I have setup the BIOS to look first at the USB DVD, next the OS boot Manager. The PC spins the DVD at startup but won't read it. DVD drive and DVD are good. In Windows, No problem to read the USB ports.

When I hit the "Escape" key at startup and select the boot menu, I am NOT offered the USB-DVD. It shows "OS boot Manager" twice.

This PC has BIOS = INSYDE F.09

SN [edit]

 

From what I read on the board, there seems to be a flaw in the BIOS. What is the solution?

Every non-trivial computer program has a flaw. 

Remember the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" vulnerabilities in most processors, that gained large attention from the media in January 2018 ?

Remember the 'FDIV' flaw in Intel floating-point calculations, from much more than a generation ago?

 

In your case, any alleged flaw in the BIOS is NOT RELATED to your situation.

 

At startup, press the ESCAPE key, and see if one of the options is to enter BIOS SETUP.

If so, change the "boot order" to make the USB-attached DVD device the first bootable device.

Save/Exit from BIOS SETUP, and reboot.

Your computer should boot from the first bootable device.

I followed your instruction. It was setup since last week to boot from the USB CD/DVD. I tried again to be sure.

On the second pass I looked again at the Esc, F9 option which shows the boot options to choose from. No option for the USB port even when the DVD drive is plugged in. It still shows OS boot sector twice.

 

This is what I saw initially. The laptop BIOS doesn't seem to recognize the USB port, but the Windows 8 does.

Power-off, then disconnect the USB DVD.

Power-on, and do the "escape-and-F9" sequence again.

Are there still TWO options, or just ONE -- the disk-drive?

 

Can you enter BIOS SETUP, with the USB DVD connected?

It should be possible to permanently change the boot-order, to nominate the USB DVD as the first option.

 

Do you have both a laptop and a desktop?

It's confusing to me about what you have tried on each computer, and what the results were,

and what you are trying to achieve on which computer.

Sorry about any confusion. This is all in reference to a touch-screen laptop.

1. When I disconnect the USB-DVD and hit ESC-F9, it shows

OS Boot Mgr

OS Boot Mgr

Boot from EFI File

 

I exit then hit F10. I enter the BIOS setups and the BIOS boot list shows

USB CD/DVD ROM Drive

USB Diskette on Key/USB Hard Disk

OS Boot Manager

! Network Adapter

 

I hit F10 (save and exit)

 

I plug in the USB DVD. Start the laptop. The DVD spins but laptop won't boot.

I restart and hit ESC, F9 still shows

OS Boot Mgr

OS Boot Mgr

Boot from EFI File

 

--Is it possible there's a problem that I'm trying to boot a 32-bit DVD while I have a 64-bit O.S. already installed? Would I have to edit the registry?

In BIOS SETUP, is there both "legacy" boot options and "UEFI" boot options?

 

> Is it possible there's a problem that I'm trying to boot a 32-bit DVD while I have a 64-bit O.S. already installed?

 

No.  Booting is booting, no matter what files already exist on the disk-drive.

 

> Would I have to edit the registry?

 

No. Booting is booting.
