If this is the correct page for your laptop, there is a bootable CD image that you should be able to copy to a USB drive with `dd` if you have one spare. Even though it mentions Windows, it shouldn’t matter as it’s a bootable CD image and won’t touch your hard drive. You should be able to select the USB drive from the bios boot menu if it is copied correctly to the usb drive.

There is also a bios update tool on that page that claims to be compatible with Debian 9 and might work under Devuan.
