In order to boot from another device other than the hard drive, you have to enable Legacy Mode in the BIOS.
See if tapping the ESC key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen gives you a menu of options.
You may be able to select the legacy boot options menu from there.
Then you should be able to boot from the USB flash drive.

Your F9 at startup was the trick. Thank you!
The F9 at startup is different than the F9 in BIOS.
F9 in BIOS simply restores default BIOS settings. F9 at startup is an interupt sequence similar to F2, F10, and ESC.
In this case, F9 at startup presents a stand alone Boot Order Menu, from which you can select USB drive to manually override BIOS settings.
BTW, NONE of the Boot Order selections in BIOS config ever worked for me, neither Legacy Mode nor disabling Secure Boot. F9 at startup worked first time.

because UEFI and MBR are 2 different systems the boot disk needs to be in the correct format in order for the bios/bootloader to recognise it.
I see answers to relavant questions stating that 'Legacy Mode' should be used in order to re-install Windows 7~10 rather then using the newer UEFI system of New PC's/Laptops.
Here was my problem and remedy;
HP-15-ae144tx Primary SANDISK SSD 300x M.2 2280 HDD Failed Smart Test and refused to boot.
This Solution allows to install Windows 7~10 on a UEFI System NOT in Legacy Mode.
- Bought a new Crucial SSD M.2 2280 HDD Installed.
- Temp dissconnect the factory HDD.
- Downloaded Legitimate Windows .ISO using HEIDOC Windows ISO Downloader
- Using Rufus Burn Windows10.ISO to USB with following settings > Partition Scheme / Target System = MBR Partition Scheme for UEFI Computer / FAT32.
- Insert the USB & Power on the laptop (whilst booting) hit [F9] key until Boot menu comes up.
- Select the USB and if you used the correct format in burning in Rufus Windows Should Install else check #4.
- Install Windows10 to New SSD Installed above.
- Once installed, Reconnect the Factory HDD and secure the Back Cover.
Note: The Windows License Key is in the BIOS on New Systems and with the above Method the Correct Version of Windows 10 Home is Automatically installed based on the Key.
*For Legacy Mode installs swap the Settings in #4. to MBR for BIOS or UEFI

I did face the same issue when I tried to install window 10 by USB.
I used HP PAVILLION NOTEBOOK
I believe this would work any HP Laptop/PC
Here how I solved it....!!!
1). Download and install RUFUS software
2). Create bootable USB using windows 10 iso file ( You need a Windows 10.ISO file to perform the task)
2.1) Change the settings in RUFUS
-Partition scheme - MBR partition scheme for UFEI
- File System - FAT32(Default)
3). Restart the laptop/pc and plug in the USB flash drive
4). At the very beginning ( when you see the black screen), keep press F9 key, You will get the boot order menu.
5). Select Boot from UFEI USB and hit ENTER
6). System will restart and start the boot from the USB flash drive
7). Follow the installation instruction to install a clean os, Enjoy......!!!
