cant boot from usb on hp notebok

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a notebook i just put a new ssd in. I used the windows media tool to download the iso image onto a 3.1 32 gb usb. I am trying to boot with that on my notebook but the computer is not recognizing the drive. I have rearranged the boot order on both uefi and legacy with usb at the top but still when I try to boot i get the "no bootable device found. Please insert disk and press any key." I know the usb was created successfully and have tried other usbs with no luck. This is also the 2nd ssd I have tried. Is there a reason for this? I also switched back to bios defaults and moved the boot order with the same result

You don't download the Media Creation Tool (MCT) onto a USB stick -- that will not work.

 

You download the MCT to a working PC and then use that tool to either create a USB stick or to create an ISO file on that PC from which you can then use various utilities to create a USB stick.

This what I did. I used the tool to create the usb with iso image on it. Is that not right? I have done it before so I am pretty sure I did it correctly. I worded it poorly in the initial description edit: I fixed it in the intial post.

The MCT, if you select bootable media, is supposed to copy the files locally to your PC and then format the USB stick and copy those files to the USB stick.

 

If all you did was copy the ISO file to the USB stick, it will not boot.

Hi, @wiserl 

 

I just completed helping another forum member with a similar issue with the media creation tool making a bootable USB flash drive.

 

See if you can use the alternative option to create the installation media that I referenced in my next to the last reply.

I found the solution. In Bios I switched the USB setting from enabled to auto. This allowed to boot from the usb and complete the fresh install on the new ssd.
