    If I understand correctly if I wish to install my win10 in UEFI mode I must first install it from a usb key that was booted in that same mode.

    But I cannot.

    I'm writing here out of desperation as I am a senior I.T. technician and I don't understand how this can be causing me issue.

    I've made sure fast boot and secure boot are off; i've made the (8GB) usb key with rufus following this guide How to Create a Windows 10 Bootable UEFI USB Drive

    I've been very explicit about every step I even tried rebooting to the key from window's interface but it just dropped me back onto a normal boot.

    I have an Asrock Extreme6/GB motherboard.

    trying to boot to the usb key in UEFI mode when in the boot menu of the MB simply immediately reverts to the boot menu and trying to set the UEFI usb key as first boot priority gives the "no boot media was found..." error message.

    Hello tatsu,

    First, double check to make sure that you have the Windows hard drive listed first in the boot priority UEFI firmware setting.

    Afterwards, using the USB created by Rufus below, see if you are able to boot from the USB from the F11 boot menu for the motherboard like in OPTION TWO of the second tutorial below.

    Rufus causes a lot of problems and is completely not necessary. Format the USB flash drive as FAT32. Mark the partition on the flash drive as active. Mount the Windows 10 ISO file. Copy all the files/folders over. You get a USB flash drive bootable in both legacy and UEFI mode.
    which i did :

    I followed this guide How to create a bootable USB drive for Windows 10 - MSPoweruser the second part via CMD and yet the results remain the same.

    Do you have any other ideas.

    Could the USB stick be detecting all available drives as non-UEFI and therefore refusing to boot in UEFI mode?
    but this did not help.

    the key still only will work if booted in MBR. If i try UEFI it sais no boot media found

    Is secure boot disabled in UEFI? It should be disabled.

    tatsu,

    Just to verify, double check using the tutorial below to see if Windows is installed with UEFI or Legacy BIOS.

    Yep, that's it. I just wanted to verify that it wasn't a Legacy BIOS installation trying to boot to UEFI.

    At this point it's a matter of troubleshooting to see what and where it's going wrong at.

    If able, please post back with screenshots of your settings for this, and what it does when trying to boot from the listed UEFI USB in the F11 boot menu.
