I have created a UEFI USB drive using the Rufus method, but I am unable to boot to it. When I try to selected as the boot drive for my GA-X99-UD4 I get the following error:
I have disabled Secure Boot and Fast Boot.
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot devices and press a key
I have also noticed that in creating the UEFI bootable that the GPT option will sometimes change itself. So, before you complete the operation, be sure to compare what Shawn has shown to what you see on your screen.
Hint: I printed the instructions so that I would have a comparison to look at.
I'm almost certain that the settings were correct. I even re-download the .ISO and reformatted the drive.
P.S. - When you get it to boot and you start your install, after it has finished setting up for install and before it re-boots the first time, take out your thumb drive. You probably will not get a "Press any key to boot....." message, and it will boot again into the install. Endless loop!

Great post and easy to follow for a novice user... Rufus has been updated to 2.2.668 which does the same job as the previous version but selection is slightly different and some users might get a little light headed and confused because the screen captures are different in the latest version. Because I have used Rufus before and I know how to use it, it was plain and simple for me and it worked a treat.
Thank you Mel. Tutorial updated.
I want to put all the files from the dvd (I've ordered Windows 10 Box) onto a USB stick for faster install. Is this possible and is there a tutorial for it?
