This question already has an answer here:
Wanting to dump Win10 for 16.04LTS. I've tried literally dozens of workarounds, and feeling that HP just won't allow a USB boot to Linux. Legacy on, correct boot order, secure boot disabled, etc. I've made the stick using three different apps, the most recent being Rufus w/both UEFI and BIOS MBR setting. I know the stick works. This is nutz.
