Cannot enter BIOS, Intel boot agent continues to pop up

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I want to boot from a USB stick with MS Win 7 on it. Screen shows the following message:


Initializing Intel (R) Boot Agent GE v1.3.76

PXE 2.1 Build 090 (WfM 2.0)


It does show a cursor beneath, but does not react to anything. I cannot enter the BIOS. 


Also when starting the computer and hitting F10 (or any other F key or Esc, del) I cannot enter the BIOS and the boot agent message above shows up again.


I do not have an OS on this machine anymore after the HD died and want to boot via that USB stick. Going crazy over this.......

@nrvsbrkdwn Welcome to HP Community!


As you have stated that you are unable to install the operating system on this computer.


I would suggest you perform cloud recovery.
