    Can't boot uefi


    Recently I helped a friend with upgrading to an SSD and installed Windows 10 Pro. I used a custom .iso and burned it using Rufus gpt. I set the computer to boot uefi, disabled secure boot.

    The computer worked perfectly, however after sometime they started getting a bsod with winload.efi, after doing some searches I decided to try and reinstall windows. At that point I found that none of my bootable drives were working, all would fail to boot.

    I tried many ways of recreating my usb drives using many different tools, (rufus, yummy, winusb, easyusb, easy2boot among others)

    My installations would fail, either they would stop after bootx64.efi or I would get video lines on my display and the install would fail. The failures would really depend on what I would use to try and create the bootable usb.

    I had been using a modified custom windows installation and it was only until I used diskpart to manually create a 32GB partition formatted with fat32 on my 64GB usb drive that I noticed an error. When copying the contents of the iso file I received an error that the install.esd was too large.

    After further research, I found this article: USB install media with WIM file larger than 4GB – Win10.Guru

    I started going down the rabbit hole:

    - Converted the .esd to .wim
    - Tried Splitting the .wim on a Windows PE USB (32GB formatted with FAT32)
    - Tried Single .wim on a usb drive with a fat32 primary partition and an ntfs one
    - Tried Suggestions on the article and subsequent comments using the included batch files

    At the moment when I try to boot not just the HP, just about any laptop I own, whether it be Dells or HP's. I get lines on the display like the video doesn't work. I can't figure out what's going on. I have tried with different Windows versions, pro, enterprise, but no luck.

    Apologies if the post is too long or if I missed any details, this is my first post ever here. I tried replying on the attached article, but wasn't able to.

    Can't disable UEFI boot on HP 250 G3

    I got it, I was not accustomed to UEFI (because on HP 4540s I disabled it) and I automatically thought that if I boot from the first menu it will boot in UEFI mode, but I have to go to second menu "Boot From EFI File" to get a list of EFI boot options:

    I installed Ubuntu Mate and Windows 8.1 from the first menu (the picture) and they both installed in BIOS mode. Quite simple really.

    Can't disable UEFI boot on HP 250 G3

    I am really interested in this. I could not install Linux and I don't know why. Was it so simple to install it? The linux I want to install is elementary OS, but I can install other one. How can I do it? Thanks!
