    To make things easy, try F12 first, on newer computers there is an option to enter UEFI setup as part of the alternate boot menu. Just be easier to remember 1 key does it all - if that is the case with yours.

    You can also leave safe boot turned on, if you are not booting from some third party OS, safe boot will not interfere with booting a standard Windows 10 installation flash drive created with the MCT.

    I do recommend turning fast boot off in UEFI. Also on a computer with an SSD, I would turn fast startup off in Windows. If you are not going to use Hibernation, disable it and fast startup gets disabled too. To turn off Hibernation, in a command prompt (admin) or powershell (admin) run:
    powercfg -h off

    If you want hibernation, but turn off Windows fast startup:

    The advantage of turning off hibernation is that it removes the hiberfil.sys file from your SSD.
    Well that's interesting when I look at you reply above all I see is:

    but when I hit quote to reply I not only see in my quick reply the above but additional info starting with "I do recommend turning fast boot off in UEFI." and ending with "The advantage of turning off hibernation is that it removes the hiberfil.sys file from your SSD." I wonder why that is?

    And now I see the rest of you message! in your last post. So I am guessing what you were adding some info to the post just as I was replying to it : )
