Not to be an ass or anything, but going to efi allows computers to advance to using faster, smoother, more secure operating systems. BIOS is extremely dated (as in nothing has changed with them since they were invented).
Now, ironbesterer, if you would be so kind as tell me the particular model of HP you have, I will be more than happy to assist you in getting your system to boot from either a live disk or a bootable usb.
