Sorry for the previous mail, mishandling on my side...

Brent, your assumptions are right. I even tried the wiki page about the 
840 G1 [1] as it is another Elitebook. Not better unfortunately...
Marcel : in the easiest way possible with dd. Thereafter all the others 
possible ways :/
mar77i not wet I have to backup all my data onto my NAS. I'll RAZ my 
computer & BIOS afterwards. Good to know that the usb key can be a 
source of error I'll try with another one. Still sounds kinda funny to 
me because my other computer which is also an HP w/ EFI (Envy17) boot 
fine with every USB stick.

Thanks all for your advices,
