Create Windows 10 Installation Media With UEFI Support
Most users received Windows 10 as a free upgrade through Windows Update, but there are ones who prefer installing the new operating system from the physical drive like USB flash. And in this article I’m going to show you how to create a USB flash drive with Windows 10 which could be installed on UEFI-based computers.
In case you’re not the one who really needs to install Windows 10 on UEFI-based computer, but you’re reading this article just for education, you’re maybe not familiar with the term “UEFI.” Well UEFI is basically the replacement for BIOS, so that means it’s a new firmware which starts the computer and loads the operating system. And more and more new Windows PCs are coming with it.
Let’s now return to creating Windows 10 USB drive with UEFI support. For this action you’ll need to download the Rufus USB image writer, I know you maybe don’t like the fact that you’ll have to use a third-party software, but this one is very good, and it’s the fastest way. Rufus USB is a standalone utility, so you don’t have to install it, just download and open it.
Once you’ve opened Rufus USB, select the USB flash drive you want to create an image on, select GPT partition scheme for UEFI (leave cluster size to default), make sure you have “Create a bootable disk using ISO Image” selected from the dropdown menu, add your Windows ISO file (you can download Windows 10 ISO files from here for free), and click Start.
Wait until the process is finished, and voilà, you have completely legit USB flash drive with Windows 10 installation which supports UEFI-based computers. Now just restart your computer and install the system normally.
