BIOS does not allow boot form USB key of USB CD even when UEFI set to allow

Product Name: hp pavilion x360-11-n011si
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

I have a beatsaudio notebook that was upgraded to win10 - the HDD failed and I replaced it with an SSD.

 

The BIOS does not want to allow boot from USB key of USB CD even when UEFI setup to do.

 

Any help will be appreciated

Re: BIOS does not allow boot form USB key of USB CD even when UEFI set to allow

Hi,

 

I have achieved a work around:

 

Secure boot off

Legacy support on

 

and here is the big one

 

HDD boot in Legacy must be last on the list

 

The BIOS does not recognise that there is NO OS installed and continue to the next boot device as any other good hp bios does, it just stops, thus putting it last allows for the USB boot.

 

Thank you
