The Pavilion M6-1070 does not have a secure boot setting because it came out before Windows 8 was released to market.
Your notebook came with W7.
Only PC's that came with Windows 8 or newer from the PC manufacturers have a secure boot setting.

On those models you have to boot the flash drive from the notebook's USB 2 port.
It will not boot from a USB 3 port.
The service manual indicates that there is one USB 2 port on the right side of your notebook.
See chapter 2, page 18 for the location of the USB 2 port.

There is probably something wrong with the way you made the bootable USB drive.
How did you try to boot from the flash drive?
I always press the ESC key and then select the F9 boot options menu from the available options, select the USB flash drive, and press the enter key.
The PC should then boot from the flash drive if it is properly set up to boot from.
If that doesn't work, unfortunately I don't have any other suggestions for you to try.
