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

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.
