CMOS setting

HP Recommended
Envy dv7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Does anyone know how to get into the CMOS of my computer, I need to set the boot order to a USB drive as first?


Thanks for the help

Rather than changing the boot priority in the bios, see if you can start an installation from the boot manager menu as follows.


With the machine still powered on, insert the installation flash drive and Shutdown the notebook with the media still inserted, by holding down the power button for 10 seconds.


Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Boot Options Menu ( f9 ).


Use the arrow keys to highlight the Flash drive option and hit enter.
