Also, I see "customised boot" option for UEFI. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HP_EliteBook_840_G1 Tried this? (If it's applicable for your system)
I've been though the page several times. The setup itself wasn't applicable to the 8760w as all UEFI was disabled (it was experimental only from HP in my model laptop) so there are no paths in bootmgr, etc. I may try and configure it that way, but with all UEFI disabled, there is something else (probably simple) that is causing this to fail.
The bewildering part of this whole problem is "How the hell is the .iso booting so easily, while I can't do the same thing from the hard drive?" Especially since simply choosing to boot from the .iso works flawlessly.
Everybody gets one of these issues every once in a while, this one is mine -- and it's a doozie...
