Hp Elitebook 2560p won't boot from USB stick

Elitebook 2560p

Hi there! Today i just thought about installing Windows 10 on my HP Elitebook 2560p till i've tried booting my USB stick which shows a black screen with a blinking underline bar (basically the blinking cursor). I must say that when i made the USB stick i kinda bugged the DVD-RW which i used to copy the contents from the disc i have with Windows 10 x64, but i can't find that issue as the main problem to be honest...
What should i do? Shall i remake the USB stick without messing with the optical drive i use or do anything else?

Note that this laptop's BIOS does NOT show secure boot and UEFI is not mainly supported and covered by warranty by HP!

Hey there!
I solved the issue, turns out this laptop was trickier in my case to make Windows 10 21H1 to run on it. I had to use Rufus and make the whole SSD (i'm glad that is removable though) into a "Windows To Go" image to make it run fine, still having issues with Drivers but it works
