Windows 10: HELP !! Unable to boot to Desktop no matter which Windows I install
Be nice to all, please?!
Rufus presets FAT32 for UEFI only, it uses NTFS for Legacy UEFI-CSM.
I have created the USB in Rufus using FAT32 system/GPT partition and the computer is installing but a message popped up which has again confused me. Please guide me. Screenshot below.

I don't know what the commands are for the Linux installer you are using, but you need to convert the hard drive you are trying to install it to to GPT. In Windows it is:

(which will erase the hard drive, assuming the drive is the first drive in the system (disk 0).
Since we all are short of time, I am trying to figure this out ASAP. I have chosen the Go Back option (screenshot above) and now i have got this window. Screenshot below. Should I erase the disk and continue with the installation of Lubuntu since I have already formatted it tons of time and there is no data in it. But the question was of UEFI compatibility mode.
Erase and install should format it in GPT mode for UEFI. If not, possibly the Something else option, then use whatever tool it opens to delete all the partitions on the drive and initialize disk as GPT.
Thanks. I will try this.
Three things must match:
Computer in UEFI or legacy BIOS mode - it currently looks like you are in UEFI which is what you want.
Installation USB flash drive - if the computer is in UEFI mode, the flash drive must be FAT32 (the partition can be marked as active to make it compatible with both UEFI and legacy BIOS/CSM). If the computer is in legacy BIOS or CSM mode, the flash drive can be either FAT32, or NTFS, but the partition on it must be marked as active.
The hard drive you are installing to - if the computer is in UEFI mode, the hard drive must use the GPT partitioning type. If the computer is in legacy BIOS/CSM mode, the hard drive must use the MBR partitioning type.
CSM is a mode for UEFI booting that simulates legacy BIOS booting so if CSM is enabled, then you would set everything up like it was for legacy BIOS, but that is not what you want if you can avoid it.
Amazing. After a lot of fuss I was able to install Windows but with a slight twist. I created two partition during windows 10 installation C: and D and installed Windows in the D Drive and Voila. Could anybody tell me why it was not installing in the C: drive ??
