    The laptop I'm referring to is not Legacy, Dude. I have two Legacy BIOS and two newer UEFI machines.

    The next one in line for dual boot is my newest laptop; hence my question about UEFI. I have disabled Secure Boot, but haven't found a reference to CSM in the settings.
    CSM is also known as Legacy BIOS

    Compatibility Support Module (CSM)
    The UEFI boot manager is able to load legacy BIOS environment using the Compatibility Support Module (CSM). This module is able to emulate legacy BIOS environment and allow booting legacy operating systems or new operating systems which were installed without UEFI boot loader.

    Oh! So I don't have to worry about it, then, if I'm on UEFI?

    Only if it still won't boot from your UEFI USB flash drive when you already disabled Secure Boot and Fast Boot (if available). :)

    As soon as I get my courage wound up and running. :)

    I've never installed using UEFI before, so this will be something I want to be very careful with. It takes me awhile of studying and reading and studying and reading. :)

    Thanks for the warning, Shawn. Everything went fine with Mr. Rufus on the legacy system, so I hope it goes the same here. I have both Secure Boot and Fast Boot disabled, so the next thing is to create a new partition for Windows 10.

    Don't worry. Installing with UEFI is not to bad. Once you do it once, it feel just as easy as it did without it. :)

    That's what you think! :)

    When I am ready to boot, I get a Boot Options Menu:

    OS Boot Manager (on my hard drive)
    Boot from EFI File (I chose this and got a long line of stuff I didn't understand, so I quit)

    So, did I create a "not so hot" Boot USB? Or is everything OK and I'm choosing the wrong thing?

    Help! Again!

    Yep, choose the "OS Boot Manager" instead. :)
