Every time I turn on my hp, it shows a black screen that says, 'Selected boot image did not authenticate' and the only option is 'OK'. I have tired multiple different options to fix my hp, but nothing seems to work. I have pressed F10, I have removed my battery and my power cord and held the power button down for fifteen seconds, but have had no success in fixing the problem. Please, can anyone help me fix this issue?

I understand you are unable to boot into Windows. Don't worry as I have a few steps which should help you to resolve the issue.
This will test all the hardware in the system and detect any problems. If it fails please capture the failure code.
If all the test passes, I would suggest you may try the "Reset the PC" or the "Recovery Manager" options to reinstall Windows OS. Doing this will delete all data and the computer will go back to its original factory condition. But if both these options do not work then it means that the recovery partition is corrupt.
The only other way to install Windows would be to order the recovery media for your laptop and using the recovery media you can install Windows. You can check if the recovery media is available online on www.hp.com/drivers by entering the exact model no. of your laptop. To find the exact model no. click here: http://hp.care/2bygf7l
Otherwise, you could also reach HP phone support to order the recovery media. Please fill out an online form on www.hp.com/contacthp to reach phone support.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be happy to help you.
