    You can`t choose MBR for UEFI, did you read what I wrote ?

    I have made a MBR for Legacy installer and a GPT for UEFI installer using Rufus, don`t know why you are having such trouble.

    You can try Navy`s method if you feel up to it.

    You only have 4GB of memory installed, so why are you installing 64 Bit ?

    Any usb drive will sure work, unless your usb drive got problem.

    Burning ISO file using Rufus quite simple and straight forward. Use the default setting like below picture it should be work :

    I have use this method for burning Windows 10 ISO with no problem, and my USB drive already 6 years old. :)

    Then I would try Navy`s method, but go slow and be careful and re check the commands before you enter them.

    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    Let's try something, I want you to format the usb stick from Windows, we are not going to add anything to it, we are just going to format it Fat32, try that and less us know what happens.

    And to make sure we get everything off the usb stick, delete it down to unallocated space, Choose Delete Volume to do that, then create a New Simple Volume and Format it Fat32.

    After that is done use the drop down again to mark it Active.

    It should look like this when you are done.

    Wow, you are so confusing, if your Bios is UEFI and Legacy, you can choose whichever you want, you have to decide what you want it be, then you have to save changes (F5) and then exit (F10) the Bios.

    If you want a UEFI install then your Windows 7 drive has to be GPT, if it`s MBR you will have to convert it from MBR to GPT.

    Legacy mode/MBR Disk

    UEFI Mode/GPT Disk

    Open Disk Management.

    Right click the box I have marked with an arrow and then click Properties, then click the Volumes tab to determine what your disk is now, either MBR or GPT.

    Personally I would install Legacy/MBR, there is no benefit with UEFI when it comes to an installed Windows, in my opinion.

    I never install windows in UEFI mode. But that is just my choice.
