Boot Windows 10

hello guys

 

a bought a new pen drive, a Cruzer Blade 16GB to make a fresh install on windows

but the windows does'not boot from this Pen Drive and i don't know why..

 

i have another pen drive, a Cruzer Orbit 8GB and when i tested, it worked fine

 

so why the cruzer blade is not detected, am I doing something wrong?

Re: Boot Windows 10

What app are you using to make the drives bootable?  Is your pc BIOS or UEFI based?

Re: Boot Windows 10

i was only using media creation tool from microsoft (create a USB flash) option

 

but then I tried on Rufus with FAT32 and GPT/UEFI and worked fine after disable the 'secure boot' in the boot option menu

 

thanks for the help Smiley Happy

Happy to hear you got it working.  Smiley Happy

 

Yes, USB booting on EFI systems requires the Secure Boot option to be disabled.
