    UEFI installs. Im not sure whats different about my systems. They are both listed in my specs, but both boot and install fine from a NTFS drive.

    I was just stating there are cases where it does work. Of course one should always go with the method that is more likely to work. This is just simply what I have found.

    Rufus is a bit of a conundrum... technically it's quite cool in the way it allows a FAT32 boot with Linux ntfs driver to launch setup from a 2nd partition on the USB for files larger than 4GB.. the alternative would be to .swm the installation files with dism...(ala OEM recovery) ..Navy's suggesion is fool-proof IMHO tho'

    I'm not sure why secure boot's complaining - others here are more versed in those aspects...

    Setting your MAK or GVLK key in the pid.txt as alpha explained will get Pro installed and activated... online for the former or with KMS once network access has been established in the latter.
