    Use a 8GB or larger flash drive and Rufus to create a UEFI/GPT install device. It will be NTFS.

    I have one that I can install Home or Pro, 32 or 64 bit from which I made following the link NavyLCDR posted: Solved How to make 4 in 1 installation USB? - Windows 10 Forums

    I'm using it now to upgrade a Windows 7 Home X64 laptop to Win 10 X64.

    Mahn, why is it hard to explain it to you guys..
    *I have downloaded the AIO ISO from Kickass torrents because I don't want multiple downloads.
    *The AIO ISO is 4.8GB. So I cannot make it as a bootable device for EFI devices because they need the USB to be FAT-32 not NTFS and FAT-32 will only support 4GB per file. (The install.wim is over 4GB, so I cannot do it).
    *All I want is my Windows 8.1 laptop to be upgraded to Windows 10 via ISO, but since it is an AIO, when I take the setup.exe, it gives me an error to put in the x64 disc, but this is an AIO, it has both x86 and x64. and when I take setup.exe from sources folder, it tells me that it cannot install 32-bit on an EFI system.
    *So is there any way extract the x64 Single Language version from the AIO ISO I've downloaded?
    *Also, I don't want any other ISO downloads because I hate downloading large files. It takes much time in India.!

    Try this. I don't know how to extract the version you need
    but boot into bios. Then navigate to boot configuration and disable the secure boot feature save and exit input the code
    boot to your usb a10 and try again.
    But the windows 10 is for upgrade from an existing activated installation
    don't know if that'll work if it does then you can re enable the secure boot after installation

    1. If you are upgrading an existing Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, you don't need to boot from the USB in order to do that. You run setup.exe from the USB as a storage device not a boot device.

    2. Since you don't need to boot from the USB in order to do an upgrade, the USB can be formatted with NTFS.

    3. If you do a clean install before doing an upgrade from within the previous operating system, Windows 10 will not activate.

    4. In order to extract a single version install.wim from the AIO install.wim you are going to need to use imageX to do that which is part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK). Read the WAIK Tools section of this tutorial:

    Dude, UEFI DOES support installation from NTFS if you provide an UEFI NTFS driver. And Rufus will set that driver automatically for you, so that you can boot from NTFS.

    It's a shame you didn't actually let Rufus create your USB for you, as an NTFS drive, and simply tried - you'd have found that you can indeed boot NTFS from UEFI, and that you really didn't have to do anything but use the default options. For more on this, please see here.

    As the author of Rufus, how I wish people stopped with the very mistaken assumption that NTFS is not bootable from UEFI.
    It is, Rufus does it routinely, and what's more, some vendors (Intel, Gigabyte...) are starting to include an NTFS driver in their UEFI firmware so that you don't even need an application like Rufus to set things up for you...

    NTFS requires UEFI then, correct. Makes more sense to create as FAT32 so it will boot from UEFI or non-UEFI systems I'd think.

    BTW: Thanks for a great tool.

    On the contrary, using NTFS ensures that it can boot from both BIOS (or UEFI-CSM) and pure UEFI.
    By design, to avoid any confusion about the installation mode, Rufus will only enable one or the other. But you can use the Alt-E cheat mode if you really want a dual UEFI+BIOS bootable USB.
