Can't boot from usb hp pavilion g6

Please-if you haven't done so make your Recovery Media before attempting this.

 

Creating Recovery Media>> Windows 8
 
With Secure Boot disabled/Legacy enabled you still have to change boot selection at power on. Immediately after powering on the laptop- tap Esc key. From the menu tap F9 Boot options to select the usb.

With Legacy support disabled, disable secure boot, then enable Legacy support again.

 

Now when rebooting, press esc key again and select F9.  The USB drive should appear now.

 

Hope this helps 😄
