Hi @allwynloon,

Thanks for becoming a member of the HP Support Forums. I understand you are trying to upgrade to Windows 10 from USB drive. I will be glad to help you.


As of July 28, 2016, Microsoft is not longer offering free Windows 10 upgrade.


As for booting from a USB, boot into the BIOS. Please look at document for Configuring the Boot Order in the System BIOS.


Please keep me informed of how things went. 

If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.
