Sorry, but you basically can't -- boot Linux USB stick.

 

And even if you could, once you did that, you would then inherit the entire support role for your PC because HP does not provide Linux support.

What da shame and pity in da same time for HP. Obviously I do not need any support from HP but enable legacy options or just any other help to boot from Linux stick. That's it. I do not need any other support and I don't have anything against HP in that case like ask for drivers or any issue etc. As well as obviously this forced me to ask help from BIOS mods resources.

I already told you that you can't boot from a Linux USB stick.  You need to have UEFI disabled and Legacy (CSM) enabled -- and some of the newer HP PCs simply do not support that.  If you can't make those changes, it does not matter how you format the USB stick, it is not going to work.

Both Mint and Ubuntu have functions to create Boot USB sticks -- but I have found they do not always work  There is also Unetbootin, but I have not used that lately.
