608 g1 no boot devices detected

HP Recommended
608 g1
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello everyone,

I recently got my hands on a 608 g1 without an operating system on it.

So I tried to install windows from a USB drive, only the tablet will not detect it. Its not in the list of boot devices.

When booting up the tablet I get:

"Boot Device Not Found

Please install an operating system on your hard disk.

Hard Disk (3F0)

F2    System Diagnostics

 

 

For more information, please visit www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup

 

Steps I have taken so far (all from the BIOS):

-Disable USB boot and re-enable it

-Disable SecureBoot

-Check bios version (its the latest already)

-Change the boot order to boot from USB

-Try a different USB drive

-Restore all BIOS settings to default

-Press F2

All to no avail.

There are no boot devices available upon pressing F9. The list is empty.

The previous owner sold it to me with the note that it would not install windows from a USB drive because some drivers were missing, but after he tried Secure Erase it would not detect any USB devices anymore.

If anyone has any clue what I could be missing, let me know! Otherwise the tablet seems to function fine, so I'm inclined to think it is a software issue.
