    Try Enabling Legacy Support.

    If the bottom portion becomes editable, try setting the USB drive as number one.

    Awesome. Glad this option worked for you.

    To add to the boot device confusion, the USB Diskette can refer to the USB Floppy drive that use a Diskette as they used to be referred to. I have a couple of those and tested on a computer with no other drive, worked with an MS-DOS 6.22 boot disk.

    Do not expect much from this laptop no matter what OS is on it.

    The OS that was on the 500gb HD was an unstable Win 8.1 . I dumped the 8.1 and installed Win 10 Home 32 bit. And I can't find any Win 10 drivers for this HP laptop. The only other OS that I have is Win 7 Home 32 and 64bit on 2 DVD's. I got the Win 7 set at Walmart a long time ago.

    Sorry , My post was to your comment that you didn't expect much from the
    'puter. As one of many who has put Win 10 on several old computers
    The effort is worth it.
    The link was to a thread where folks have put Win 10 on their computers , their problems and solutions. I figured you might find a few answers there as you were already getting good help here in this thread.


    For the most part on an ole 'puter, you can let the installation find compatible
    drivers for you. That will get you up and going. After you can tweak it
    by adding special drivers as you find them. Win 10 is very good
    about finding many drivers on its own and being able to use
    Win 8 and Win 7 drivers in some cases. Sometimes its hit and miss,
    but I have rarely had to find a specialty driver for any of my old ones.
