    Using Media creation tool with existing ISO

    Hello all,

    I am trying to transition all of my machines to UEFI and I am trying to use Windows' media creation tool to build up a bootable USB drive to begin testing. I have an existing ISO and set of files for Windows 10 Enterprise but I can't seem to find the option for the creation tool to point to an ISO.

    Is this not an option for the media creation tool?

    Thank you!

    No, it's not. For your purposes, you'll want to use the RUFUS tool, which does let you build a bootable and UEFI capable UFD with an ISO of your choosing. Two additional points, if using Rufus
    1. Make sure you pick GPT partition scheme for UEFI for best UEFI outcome
    2. Use a USB flash drive of 8 to 16 GB or larger to build your install environment.
