I have replaced the hard drive in this notebook with a new Samsung SSD 860 EVO and am trying to load Linux. I have the download stored on a new USB drive. The hard drive has passed diagnostic tests. When I try to boot from the USB, I get the following messages: BootDevice Not Found
please install an operating system on your hard disk.
hard Fisk - (3F0)
I believe that the computer is reading the USB because it is identified when I go to the boot menu. The first boot option is UEFI - PNY USB 3.0. The second option is UEFI - Samsung SSD 860 EVO

I'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.
HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.
The primary "challenge" to using Linux on any HP PC is the availability of Linux drivers. Any hardware that does not work will then range from simple (if there are Linux drivers available) to impossible (if there are NO Linux drivers available) to fix.
Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using.
Folks on Linux support forums have experience using a variety of machines with Linux and know a lot about driver and installation issues. You will be able to get sound and detailed help there.
