Some UEFI systems don’t boot to an NTFS USB drives. These UEFI systems will only boot to FAT32 USB thumb drives. Bearing this in mind, I create my bootable drives using FAT32 when installing UEFI Systems. See the following guide on how create a Bootable USB Drive Using dd Command on Linux.
The utility used here is Rufus and there are several other utilities for creating a bootable USB drive from an ISO image.
Note: For Windows Machines, I format with NTFS but or UEFI Systems, I format with FAT32. This can be done from the GUI, Command-line or by using Diskpart.
Next, download and make it bootable using Rufus. The version 3.5 does not work at this time, so I opted for version 3.3
Lunch the executable (Rufus) and perform the following steps below.
- Select the File System of your choice - Enter the name of the Volume Label as shown below etc - Device” section, use the drop-down menu and select the USB drive that you want to erase and use to create the installation media. - Under the “Boot selection” section, use the drop-down menu and select the Disk or ISO image option. - On the right side, click the down arrow button, and select the Download option. - And Click on START
