    Angry Asus Zephyrus M - Fresh Windows Install - Bootable USB Not Found?

    Hello,

    I have a Zephyrus M - I just installed a new SSD M.2 Drive and I am trying to install fresh windows on it but it won't recognize my bootable USB drive. What do I do? I have tried on 2 different drives. The first drive is USB 3.0 128GB and the 2nd is USB 3.0 32GB. I made the bootable USB using Windows Tool as well as RUFUS. I am using the official Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Try using a USB 2.0 Thumb drive 8 GB and Let MCT created the Install media. Back up your eSupport folder, you're going to need it. All you drivers and Asus software in located in that folder some that you can't download anywhere else.
    with your USB Install media inserted press the on button and start spamming the Esc key that will bring up a boot menu from which you will select UEFI USB. not the USB.

    In your BIOS you should have in the SATA section drives set to AHCI unless you have an NVME option available, CSM turned off.

    There are issues reported trying to use USB 3.0 Thumb drives for install media

    After the install completes install your hardware drivers from your eSupport folder that you have saved. Once your up running stable then you can upgrade drivers if available on Asus Support Downloads


    Be sure to create a Drive Image before you do anything, that why you'll a quick easy way back should things go not as expected I recommend Macrium Reflect Free Ensure you create a complete drive/SSD Image

    make sure you are using, https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10, to create the flash drive, also notice that yumi uefi works https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-m...t-usb-creator/

    if you trying to use, a costume ISO, you can, after you use the Windows 10 creator, delete all files except 2 boot file on the root

    Question

    Hi, I only have 3.0 USBs , no 2.0
    Creating a boot device with Rufus and a "customized" windows LTSC image results in the device not booting
    I tried fastboot off and secure boot off with no avail.

    Any help?


    Note: the created boot USB works fine in another desktop computer.

    Thankx in advance.


    SOLVED!: The Windows image I was using was a "BIOS" one but the laptop has only UEFI support. Downloaded a "windows UEFI" image, created the boot device with Rufus and everything went fine.

    The best and easiest way is to use Media Creation Tool and all it to create your Bootable install medias, them when you go to boot spam the Esc key and then select UEFI USB works every time with out changing anything in your BIOS/UEFI
