Here is a detailed guide for you to use your HP recovery USB to restore Windows 11.

Step 1. Turn on your HP PC and insert the USB into the USB port

Step 2. Long-press the power button to turn off the computer

Step 3. Disconnect all peripheral devices(except the monitor, keyboard, mouse and power cord)

Step 4. Remove the media from internal drives and any internal hardware added recently

Step 5. Turn on the PC again and boot the USB drive using the booting options

Before you start, you also need to prepare the following items:
