    hi guys,

    my detachable hp pavilion x2 detachable P0H64EA#ABU tablet/netbook wont start up
    the recovery just fails no matter what im trying to do

    i cant get it booting up off a usb stick and my usb dvd just whirrrrs!!!
    i have gone into the bios and turned off all tpm and secure boot settings but nothing helps

    there is only UEFI Bot order
    and OS boot manager is third with an arrow next to it,and i cant change it

    any ideas?

    so i created a usb memory stick from my windows 10 laptop,yes the tablet came with windows 10
    the menu i get from the usb stick is the same options im getting from the tablet/netbook itself and no recovery options are working
    maybe the 32gb hard drive is shot
    just gets to 54 percent and fails

    will try the chkdsk

    on seatools
    i love seatools for testing on hdds
    but i find that a lot of the time the hard drive has to be taken out as the seatools has problems on the laptop/computer with newer os/ahci settings as it crashes/doesnt even se the drive when i use hirens 15

    so normally i take drives out and usb slave them to my windows 7 desktop running seatools and it works well,but on this tablet its got a small 32gb ssd type thing i would think so this isnt viable...what would you do?

    If you are concerned with seatools then start withh chkdsk first

    Are you able to get into the bios to see if the hdd is recognized? Did you ever get the Win 10 disk to boot? if not, You probably need to Disable Secure Boot and Enable Legacy mode.

    Yes it has affected many users. I have provided several options that sometimes work in this forum and will be glad to post here if needed. The last resort is to Reset or reinstall.
