Cannot boot from external usb hdd

800 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

At work we've been using HP desktops for a while now and the latest lease for the computer labs and classrooms is the HP 800 G2 all-in-one.

I have Ubuntu installed to a USB3 external HDD and run win win10 in a virtualbox image within it for the software that won't run on linux.

 

My problem is the new lease PCs won't see my USB HDD in the bios boot menu.

 

* USb storage boot is enabled

** legacy boot enable - secure boot disable (not desirable as not pxe boot available) and legacy boot disable - secure boot enable bot have the same result of not detecting my external HDD

*** My USB HDD itself has no problems and I am using the NTFS partition now
