Can't use usb as boot device - get black screen

Pavillion Elite HPE-210y
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Initially the problem is/was that I got a "no operating system found" message after a failed attempt (error) at fully resetting/restarting  all drives.


I tried to troubleshoot and now am trying to boot from usb. 

I don't see the option to set usb as boot device priority. The only options are HDD & CD-ROM.

However, when I go into boot menu, I do see the USB as an option to boot, but only get a black screen when selected?

May I know where did you get the USB Recovery Media from?


I suggest you run a Hard drive Test first to confirm the Hardware Functionality of the Hard drive

- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. 
- When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the main menu, click Component Tests and Hard drive


If all the Test pass follow the instructions in this Link: to help disable secure boot and then install the Recovery Media


Keep me posted 😊
