Replacing HDD with an SSD

HP Recommended
15-ab165us Energy Star
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab165us (ENERGY STAR).  My HDD quit working and needs replaced.  I bought a SDD for the replacement.  When I first bought my computer, I bought a 32 GB usb flash drive to save  the OS in case it needed replaced.  I thought I followed all directions and did this correctly.  I have taken my laptop apart and mounted the new SSD.  This is where I get stuck.  I turn my computer on and the screen pops up that says no os on drive. Please install os on the drive.  I put my USB drive in and the only thing that comes up is a data file, but there is nothing on it.   When I go to to the This PC screen, it whows that there is 9.7 GB left on my usb drive out of 28.8gb.  Not sure what to do or how to proceed,  Thank you,

Are you booting to USB correctly?
