HP Stream 7 Ubuntu Installation without using usb port

HP Recommended
HP Stream 7

Hi to everyone.


In this moment my HP Stream 7 has (again) Windows 10 installed (through windows update, before I had windows 8.1 with bing) but sadly after one update the USB port don't works anymore. I've spent a lot of time trying to fix it (disable/enable usb, reinstall drivers, reinstall everything) but looks like nothing works.



I ran the Hardware Test and the result is an error code: 6E7N03-7HK8S6-XD6V6K-8D6T03. So something in the $%&%$*# update crashed the usb port or driver usb port (in some way).


I just wanna install Ubuntu, but without the usb port (for the image and the keyboard) it looks impossible.


So, exists any way for install Ubuntu using SD Card and without using the usb port? (ssh, preload -python- script)  I have open mind for any idea. 


Sorry for my bad English and thanks. 



PS: The post for the Ubuntu installation I been follow is:

Unfortunately, the Stream 7 cannot boot from the SD card slot, it can only boot from the USB port.  Did you already try connecting a OTG adaptor and a keyboard and hold the F9 key down on the keyboard while booting to see if you can enter the BIOS boot menu?  You might try another OTG adaptor also, I have some that don't work on my Stream 7 for some reason.
