New: From what I see, Fast Boot can remain enabled, which is preferable:
BIOS Setup (F10) / Advanced / Boot Options /
. . . [un-check] Fast Boot / Save / Yes. . . Restart - 19 sec to Login, 19 sec to Natural Reader
. . . [check] Fast Boot / Save / Yes. . . Restart - 19 sec to Login, 19 sec to Natural Reader
Fast Boot apparently has to be set within Windows also:
. . . Control Panel / Power Options / Choose what the power buttons do
. . . Change settings that are currently unavailable / Shutdown settings /
. . . [check] Turn on fast startup (recommended) / Save
I don't see a difference in boot up speed, un-checked or checked.
I've read that they say to un-check it, as this can have a negative effect on making a clone, but I have left it checked, and Clonezilla and the System Repair Disc appear to work fine.

Rafael, try this from my previous post (page 3), good luck!
My issue was after "enable legacy boot..." I was attempting to use the number pad w/out enabling it with the number lock key... You can also use the number keys on your top horizontol row of keyboard - you can tell the number key input is working becuase the numbers will display on the bios screen.

To Disable Secure Boot, you first have to enable and create an Administrator BIOS password. Save changes and reboot, it will ask you to confirm disabling of secureboot. Do so and reboot, you can now boot from Windows 10 DVD and install your SSD hard disk. Enjoy. Don't know why HP and HP experts don't know about this...

I still have the 840 G1 which is much less trickier.
So... @everyone... How do we proceed in order to install any OS from scratch (Windows 10, 7, Ubuntu, Manjaro)... on our new SSD Drive?
Would be nice to have a clean "final word" from an agreement between us as the last post on this thread.
