    How to create UEFI Install DVD?


    Hey, so I'm upgrading my mom's laptop from windows 7 to windows 10. Since my last upgrade I seem to have misplaced my USB Stick that has the UEFI Windows 10 install media on it. I do, however, have a few DVDs lying around that are large enough to make a Installation DVD. If I use the Microsoft Windows 10 Media Creation tool, will it create a UEFI Installation DVD?

    This might help, not specifically for Dell computers, but for the ImgBurn program and insructions on making the dvd

    I think you may have misunderstood. I do not have a USB available to use right now. I want to know if creating a Installation DVD using Microsoft's Windows 10 Media Creator will create a UEFI Installation DVD.

    I know retail Windows 10 installation DVDs support UEFI installation, I want to know if I create one myself whether it will be the same or not.

    The answer is YES. whether it's DVD or USB. You'd have 2 options from the boot menu to boot from, one for MBR and the other for UEFI. Make sure you set the BIOS for correct installation type. Here's an example:

    There must be a way to boot from a usb drive - that is fundamental to any windows device that does not have an optical drive.

    Yes one would think so , I have been beating my head against the wall with this problem. I have checked the Dell website and they refer to a recovery IMG or iso etc. They also mention select odd device to boot but that option is not available, so I guess I'm going to have to create partitions and set the primary to install the OS?
