    Hello bullfights,

    Already tried that F11 then USB stick. This PC is using XP. I don't see another option.

    Does the PC support UEFI?

    If not, then you'll need to be sure the USB was created for legacy BIOS instead of UEFI.

    I can't create a bootable usb using rufus. This error always shows up:

    I followed OPTION TWO step 7 but i'm having a problem. It states that the file system should be NTFS but my usb is FAT32. Is it okay if I choose FAT32 on file system? or is it okay if i make a bootable usb with UEFI even i'm using LEGACY BIOS?

    Hello butchzxc,

    You might see if doing a manual quick format of the USB with NTFS may allow it to work afterwards.

    I've already done that but still failed. I've also found on google some ways like using cmd to format from fat32 to NTFS but still the same.

    I'll try OPTION THREE.

    Are you using "Legacy BIOS"?
    Meaning BIOS with an EFI(not UEFI) option, where "Secure Boot" & "Fast Boot" options are missing in the BIOS.

    If it is Legacy, like my laptop is, you could just use /Zip and "extract" the ISO to a USB, and boot to that.

    If your BIOS is set to EFI it will create GPT partitioning with Windows UEFI(minus the 2 above mentioned that are a part of newer PCs BIOS(Windows 8 and above), or if you leave it set to normal legacy, it will create MBR partitioning.
    GPT is good if you have TBs of disk space and can then create a lot more individual partitions.
