In order to benefit from the new UEFI features (including faster system startup), you will have to prepare your USB device slightly different.
Main take-away here: UEFI accepts boot loaders in files placed a the FAT formatted boot volume
To prepare your USB stick (4GB minimum) manually follow these steps:
- Open an elevated command
- Start diskpart
- Enter list disk
- Enter select disk # (where # is the number of your USB drive, in the example above it’s number 3)
- Enter the following commands, keep in mind that all data on the USB device will be deleted:
- create partition primary
- select partition 1
- format quick fs=fat32
- xcopy S:\* D:\ /s /e (S = the ISO drive or contents, D = the USB device)
Do you want to check if Windows is installed in such a way that its actually using UEFI, please consult my other blog post.
