hi , i have a laptop/tablet , its a laptop that is detachable so it can be a tablet aswell its an ergo b25m.
I want to install windows 10 on it but it doesnt read the usb stick i put in it, it doesnt show up at all the only thing it says in the boot options are windows boot manager and internal EFI shell, ive tryed to turn off secure boot mode by going into 'secure boot option', and erase all secure boot settings but it just reverts back to diabled when i enable it. there no legacy boot mode on it either there's only 'contiune' , 'boot manager', 'device management', ' scu', ' secure boot options', and 'boot from file' , can somebody tell me how to boot from usb so i can stall windows 10 on it please
 
That is really really odd. It sounds like the school made some restriction changes for certain, and they weren't undone. They may want to contact the school's tech and find out what was done to it. It is completely possible that more than that is limited on it. And short of completely wiping the drive, and hoping it will allow for reinstall, may still not work.
 
To disable "Secure Boot"...

1. Make sure disabling it is actually necessary. If installing older software, or untrusted software, then you may need to disable it. However, if you are installing newer versions of Windows, you should not need to disable it.

2. Open BIOS.

3. Locate the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to "Disabled". This can be found in either the "Security" tab, the "Boot" tab, or the "Authentication" tab.

4. Save your changes and exit.

5. The computer should reboot.

6. Now you can install the graphics card, hardware, or operating system that’s not compatible with Secure Boot.

7. If this isn't working for you, in some cases, you may need to change other settings in the firmware, such as enabling a Compatibility Support Module (CSM) to support legacy BIOS operating systems. To use a CSM, you may also need to reformat the hard drive using the Master Boot Record (MBR) format, and then reinstall Windows.

NOTE: If you’re using Windows 8.1, you may see a watermark on the desktop alerting you that Secure Boot is not configured correctly. Get this update to remove the Secure Boot desktop watermark.


To re-enable "Secure Boot"...

1. Uninstall any hardware, OS, etc., that isn't compatible with Secure Boot.

2. Open BIOS.

3. Locate the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to "Enabled". This can be found in either the "Security" tab, the "Boot" tab, or the "Authentication" tab.

4. On computer computers you will need to select "Custom", and then load the Secure Boot keys that are built into the computer.

5. If the computer does not allow you to enable "Secure Boot", try resetting the BIOS back to the factory settings.

6. Save your changes and exit.

7. The computer should reboot.

8. If the computer does not reboot after enabling "Secure Boot", go back into the BIOS menus, disable "Secure Boot", and try rebooting the computer again.

9. In some cases, you may need to refresh or reset your computer to its "original state" before you can turn on "Secure Boot".

windows 8.1 , its still on the computer , the computer was a school computer , whether or not its deliberately been locked so you cant install another OS on it i dont know
 
If it was a school computer, and it was approved by the school to give it away/sell it, then it should have been unlocked (in all ways) by their IT department. Now if it wasn't given/sold with school approval, well then that is a whole different situation.
