    Hi axe0! Thanks for checking in!

    I am just trying to figure out how to create a bootable UEFI usb using a macbook as I no longer have access to the PC desktop - it seems have discovered it isn't making things hard enough and went into a 'Preparing Automatic Repair' loop



    In all seriousness: I have three options now:
    1) Find someone who owns a PC to let me download a bootable USB
    2) Figure out a way to use the mac to create a bootable USB
    3) Hope the affected PC miraculously comes out of the loop - speaking of which, is there a way to use the Command Prompt available on Advanced Repair menu to get out of it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can't personally vouch for this Windows Central article, because my niece has taken possession of my MacBook Air, but it looks like it could work if you were to give it a try: How to create a Windows 10 installer USB drive from a Mac | Windows Central.

    You're welcome. Hope it solves more problems than it causes! If there'd been a TenForums tutorial or discussion of this that I could find, I would rather have provided that instead. But...my hopes remain that everything turns out for the best.
