I have a laptop from 2010, currently installed is windows 7 32-bit, I checked that it supports 64-bit versions of windows.
The usb with my windows 10 simply does not boot, when I try to boot it it just starts windows 7.
Once it's loaded it clearly detects the usb and loads its storage so that's not the problem.
I've used this usb on other computers and the installer works just fine.
I've installed plop boot manager and it says "no bootable devices found", again I've used this usb on other computers.
I don't see what the problem is.

With the USB connected, you should be able to set the USB as boot priority #1 in the BIOS (might be under "hard disk" menus, or similar).

Once the system restarts the first time following the start of the installer, reenter the BIOS and reorder the boot priority back to HDD/SDD first.

Already tried, doesn't work.
