    UEFI or MBR ?

    I 'm making a bootable usb flash drive with Rufus to install Windows 10 as a dual boot with Windows 8.1. When I installed my new video card I had to disable safe boot and enable legacy support in the bios. When I make the bootable flash drive should I choose UEFI or MBR?

    UEFI is what I used, worked a treat, only problem I had was with the video card installation, had to install 8.1 drivers and manually install it, other than that, worked perfectly using rufus and USB UEFI boot

    I got Windows 10 installed as a dual boot with Windows 8.1 . I still have to see if Windows 8.1 will boot without any problems. Pale Moon seems to be running OK so far. I'm going to install Thunderbird and call it a night.
