ElitePad 900 Not able to install OS

ElitePad 900

Hi HP, 

I have several ElitePad 900 tablets that are no longer being used and were Secure Eraced.

I am trying to get an OS on them, but they will not boot from USB or SD Card.

I have tried both MBR and GPT (FAT32) on USB Flash Drives and SD Cards with several Windows 10 and 8.1 images with no success.

The only (F9) boot option is OS Boot Manager.

The F11 recovery just hangs on >>Start PXE over IPv4 before giving the Boot Device Not Found error.

Model HSTNN-C75C

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Can you get into the BIOS setup (F10)?


If so, see if there is a legacy mode and secure boot setting.


If there is, enable legacy mode and disable secure boot.


Then see if you can boot from the Legacy USB diskette on key/USB hard drive.


That would be the only suggestion I can offer.
