That model came with Windows 10, here is the support page


In order to reinstall Windows 10 via USB - assuming you have the Windows 10 install on USB, start tapping the Esc key and then power on the PC.  Continue tapping the Esc key until the menu comes up, then pick the setup or boot menu to change the first boot device to the USB.  Do that with the Windows 10 USB in the USB port.  Then it should allow you to continue with the install.
