Solved!

15-dy2152wm Can not boot to USB

HP Recommended
15-dy2152wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I can't figure out how to boot this laptop to a USB flash drive. I get a message saying that I have a corrupt file and should boot to a Windows repair disc. I have USB Boot enabled in the BIOS and have USB Flash Drive/USB Hard Disk set as the first boot device. This flash drive boots OK in another laptop. I want to make an external image of the SSD to use for recovery if needed. What do I need to do to boot to the flash drive?

 

2nd question...on my other laptops and PC, I can press a function key to get to a boot menu to select which drive or a USB device to boot. What key does that on this laptop? The pdf manuals I have found for various HP laptops (I can't find one specifically for the 15-dy2152wm) do not show anything for this purpose.

 

Thank you for your help!

Dave M

Hi,

Turn off the PC bu holding power button until shutdown.

Turn on PC and repeatedly press ESC until startup menu appears

Press F9 to enter Boot Menu.

You might need to turn off secure boot in BIOS.

 

Hope it helps,

David

Turning off Secure Boot at first did not work. I figured out through another source that I also had to turn off TPM. It now boots to a USB flash drive OK.

Make that kinda-sorta fixed. The 15-dy2152wm laptop will boot to some USB flash drives, but it apparently does not like any Sandisk drives. It boots OK to Team Group, Transcend and a unknown brand flash drives. I have several different Sandisk drives that will work OK for file storage, but if I try to install something bootable, such as Lazesoft Recovery Suite or Macrium Reflect Free, or even a Windows installation drive made with the Windows Media Creation Tool, it will not boot. It makes no difference whether i use the laptop or my PC to load the flash drive.

 

My ultimate goal here is to image the OEM SSD to a 1gb SSD to upgrade for more capacity. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thank you!

Dave
