  1. Install from USB or UEFI? Differences?


    I created a bootable Windows 10 installer with the specific Microsoft tool, on an USB pendrive.


    Now, when I go in Bios to choose from where to boot to install Win10, I have 2 options about USB port. One is USB and the another one is UEFI....but I just have 1 installer pendrive.
    What are differences? Why it find 2 different sources?
    Both USB and UEFI options, just shows up when USB pendrive is connected.

    :)

    Still haven't had a a reply.

    W7 is a validated installation on that computer.

    This page keeps on getting a pop- up so it is difficult to use.
