Specs; HP b09WM laptop. Level Message 2 of 7. Message 3 of 7. You may be able to select the legacy boot options menu from there.Or know of a hotkey to get a menu selection of what device to boot from? It looks like I'm hitting this issue. Any ideas? Even if moving the USB after the harddrive in the boot order did work I wouldn't like it entirely because I can't find any hotkey during POST to choose what source to boot from.
I'd have to go into the BIOS and change the boot order back, which is going to throw me back to square one with the original error. Please don't make me install from a slow DVD. Why aren't you starting the installation from SmartStart? It has to be the easiest way to get all of the HP components installed If I put smart start on USB it is probably going to do the same thing.How To Install Windows 10 on HP Notebook 15 from USB (Enable HP Laptop Boot Option)
I just ran into an issue on our first g6 where the pi controller was not set as the boot controller by default. The pi is set as the boot controller right now.
I'm still making the smart start key. Apparently it does a long format of the USB key first that you can't bypass. I need a Snickers bar You have to yank the key after it reboots the first time which is a little annoying. Looks like I have to teach myself how to script smart start now. Not got around to seeing if I can combine the two just yet. I just dumped the Windows. This is how I do it, although on much older HP servers.
I wouldn't see them regressing that functionality. Any of you doing the install via iLO?I have a notebook running Windows It runs an Insider build and has had problems for months.
These include Cortana not working, universal apps not staying open, and other issues. I have talked to friends and we believe something is damaged. It doesn't appear to relate to a specific Insider build. Because of this, I was told that I need to format my hard drive and do a clean install of Windows I created a bootable USB drive, but I'm not sure how to get to the boot menu I've accessed it before, but only when my PC showed a screen with recovery options on startup.
How do I change the boot sequence on my computer and boot the USB? Please help as soon as possible. I need this PC for college and other daily activities.
With HP computers you can boot a device one and you do not need to change the boot order permanently. You can use a special HP Startup Menu for this. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button press and hold for few seconds until it powers off. In some cases, other things may need to be changed but generally speaking this should work. Provide your feedback and reply, and let me know if you face difficulties. I got to the boot options with no trouble, but once there, I was only presented with two options: Windows boot manager, or boot from EFI.
I know the USB is bootable, but regardless of which port it's in, it doesn't show up. Do you have any suggestions for why this could be and what I can do to fix it? Try re-creating it. When download completesyou will need to write or "burn" the ISO image and boot from a bootable media. Choose F9 to open Boot options. Select the thumb drive or the DVD as a boot option. I'll try these things.
I already tried to recreate the media, and it made no difference, so I don't think that's the problem. The USB drive works for everything else, so I don't see how there could be a problem with it.
I'll make sure these things are disabled and try again.Go to Solution. What could i do to sort this out? Are you, like the author of this forum, trying to delete current OS from your notebook, or are you trying to perform a different task? Can you also tell me which operating system you have please. Here is some information about boot selection but I'm not certain it will help you. Thank you very much for your help. In fact, although i don't really understand why, i was able to boot from a dvd or usb stick as soon as, on the contrary, i had disabled the legacy boot option in the bios It is strange but well it worked Furthermore, there is no way in the bios i can disable the wifi card, like i used to at least do on the pavilion ze i still have and that still works after 9 years - which is why i wanted to upgrade the bios somehow.
Anything safe i could try to switch of the wifi LED on the keyboard then? I could not locate any HP documents related to your Linux situation, but to respond to your first questions about the Bios update, I believe HP does not make the update available for Fedora because installing a BIOS that is not designed for the processor or operating system in your computer could cause the computer to stop working.

The opinions expressed above are the personal opinions of the authors, not of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.I plug it to the back of my server and hit f11 during when rebooting in order to choose a boot option.
I try to choose both "rear USB" and "generic USB" and hit "enter" but it'll simply throw me back to the screen where i choose a bootable device. I tried with multiple USB sticks but none did the trick. Any suggestion? Did you have to format the USB before attempting this? It's the only thing that clears the boot section of the flash drives properly in my experience.
The combination of bad instructions or bad interpretation of the instructions and the need to change the BIOS settings was where my problem was. The instructions on this blog were what I used the last time that got me over the hump. I get this from time to time if it is disabled. I would recommend trying to enable it.
