Omen will not boot from disk or the usb drive

HP Recommended
HP Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


Hoping someone can help me:

I have a Omen 15 that is having problems booting up, 

Up on reboot, it will go to auto recovery loop. 

Things I have tried:

UEFI enabled/ disabled

Boot from USB: Enabled
Legacy Support: Enabled
Safe Mode: Disabled

Went thru all the HP diagnostic from system to mem, HD, Video, Power, USB...all PASSED.

Flashed BIOS

Created Flash boot drive via download tool

F9 The laptop recognizes the USB and start to boot up  but it also gets a same result. "Window ran in to a problem.. machine check exception" same for disk or the USB.


Yes I am booting up from USB 🙂

ran out of ideas. 


** Note** I was able to reinstall windows, one time using F11 but after it completed the win 10 install, it went back to system error again. now, i can't use F11 any more because it errors out also.


** note 2** i noticed that repair shows up as Win.8.1 perhaps original OS?




Removed battery for while.

created the USB flash drive
