Can't boot from USB or Disk.

I have worked on several newer HP machines that will not boot from a Ubuntu USB drive or Ubuntu install disk.

I have changed the boot order in their BiOS/UEFI but still they boot to 8.1 or nothing (Some of the machines are missing HDD).

I even used the boot loader Ubuntu offer from 8.1.

At least one of the system I was unable to find the secure boot option.

If your machines are new, you may need to disable the Secure Boot option from the security options of your BIOS/UEFI; it's a system which prevents unofficial systems from booting.
