    I suspect your flash drive is the problem. Follow this tutorial to download a new ISO and create the flash drive.

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    See if that allows you to boot it via the UEFI boot option.

    Make sure you get the same version as what is installed.

    In my first post I clarified I was using RUFUS 2.6, the conversation got derailed when another user wanted to know where I got the ISO from

    Try this (based on how it works on my 7548) - make sure that, if you've fiddled with the BIOS settings, you first use F2 to go into BIOS setup and restore to factory default settings hit F9 to load optimized defaults. Then, with the flash drive inserted, restart and use F12 to get back to boot options screen. If the USB drive is not shown as a choice second to Windows Boot Manager, select lower down to enter setup (normal BIOS screens), then hit F10 to save settings and restart (yeah, without changing anything), NOW HIT F12 once again and see if that still inserted USB drive is NOW shown as a choice second to Windows Boot Manager.

    It was in fact the USB stick, 3rd one was a charm. The other 2 are USB 3.0 16&32 LEXAR's used an older PNY and that did it. Wonder whats up with the others? Anyways 8.1 installed and everything working a million times better than it did in Windows 10! The way 8.1 handles the 4K Resolution is far superior as well. Thanks!

    Though I got everything taken care of I will take a look at this and see if it will actually work for the New Flashdrives, thanks for the tip.
