1. preparing the USB stick
The USB stick is prepared on the other computer that is able to run. This is not possible without another computer. It does not matter which operating system is installed on the other computer.
Just follow these instructions: https://zorin.com/help/install-zorin-os/
As soon as the USB stick is prepared, you can continue. You can also use the USB stick several times.
2. starting from USB stick
Insert the USB stick into the computer on which Zorin OS is to be installed.
Now you must boot from the USB stick. On most computers there is an option to display the so-called "boot options" (this may be called up with the ESC, F9 or F12 key). If you can't find the corresponding key, just look up how to display the boot options on your laptop, for example, on your mobile phone (e.g. enter the question in Google: "HP Elitebook Boot Options").
Check the BIOS settings of your computer. Here is a guide on how to get into the BIOS menu: https://www.ionos.de/digitalguide/server/konfiguration/bios-starten/
Since every BIOS is different, there is no standard overview of what you have to change. In most BIOS menus, however, there are settings that allow you, for example, to boot from a USB or not. Otherwise, you can also contact us on our forum if you get stuck here: https://forum.wir-lernen-weiter.ch/
