    Dell UEFI USB Boot


    Hi all,

    Sorry if this question has been asked before. I have already gone through a number of fixes but nothing seems to be working for me so far.

    I have been provided with a USB with an MDT image on to re-image a number of PCs but soon realised it was formatted in NTFS due to the .WIM file being so large and Dell UEFI with Secure Boot will only boot from FAT32 which we need to use now as a directive from Management. I have tried splitting the .WIM into smaller .SWM files and moving back to the original location on the USB but this failed and also attempted to copy the USB data onto a multi partition USB 1GB as FAT32 and the other 57GB in NTFS which was recognised at boot but failed straight away. I am learning as i am going along here so please bare with me. Has anyone any other suggestion on what i can try here or am i fighting a losing battle?

    Many thanks,
    Matt.

    :)

  2. Install Windows 10 using UEFI bootable USB thumb drive

    You need to go into you system bios and select allow uefi usb drive. Then add the UEFI usb drive to the boot menu

    better way to partition aand create an bootable usb.

    For the UEFI system, we can use these steps to create the bootable USB:

    1.Locate a 4GB or larger USB flash drive

    2.Open Diskpart and run the following command cmd admin type diskpart

    • Type DiskPart in the command prompt.
    • Type "List Disk” (make note of the disk number of the target USB drive).
    • Type "Select Disk X”, where X is the target USB drive noted in step 4.
    • Type "Clean”.
    • Type "Create Partition Primary”.
    • Type "format FS=fat32 quick”.
    • Type "Active”.
    • Type "Assign".
    • Type "Exit".

    Copy your ISO files to the drive and reboot

    never use UEFI it better to repartition and remove UEFI go with legacy bois

    Dell UEFI USB Boot

    Reflect Restore UEFI boot from USB problem!

    Put the BIOS option back to UEFI, Secure Boot OFF. Make sure Thumb is inserted, it looks for that device when you go thru Boot init. Save and exit, rapid-tapping F12 to get back to Boot Menu Options. You will see an option for USB device. Give it a try, that's how my Dell works and yours sounds similar.
