    Ok tried turning my secure boot back on in my bios, once that is back on, legacy support feature is off, like I said earlier, with no legacy support, my usb boot stick, is not recognized. My HP computer will only recognize my dvd if their is a disk in the drive.

    So I have turned off secure boot feature, and then turned back on the legacy support feature in my bios. Now I have back again all my choices to boot from. If their is another way to boot from any of my usb ports, I haven't found it. So far only way is to have legacy support on, secure boot off.

    OldMike, you might want to check that your USB flash drive has been formatted FAT32 when you created the Macrium WinPE Rescue on it. It seems UEFI boot of these expects or prefers FAT32. I have followed that (Newer Dell, and an older Acer, not HP) guideline and find I'm not having to switch in and out of Legacy versus UEFI/Secure to boot either laptop from it.

    Well it was formatted NTFS not fat32 by Macrium Reflect. I didn't choose the format method, Macrium does. But, think I've tried that once before, using a fat32 memory stick, didn't work. But, I could try again I suppose. Right now, this computer reads all my USB ports if their is something in one of them, before, my computer never did. I might try but not right away, seeing how I've been trying to get this to work, for a long time.

    There are directions here:http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/dis...for+Windows+PE that tell you to format the USB differently depending on whether are booting Legacy/MBR (use NTFS) or UEFI/GPT (use FAT32).

    Well I already changed the usb stick that Macrium made to fat32 using MiniTool, took about 10 sec's, now I'll change my bios setting AGAIN back to secure boot on and see if it sees the usb drive.

    If not, I would stick with the FAT32 but create the Macrium Rescue with that same drive all over again since it may have done something different when you created it with what I assume was NTFS format.

    When I posted the link to the Macrium Knowledge Base article, I assumed you would do the whole process all over again.
