    I am creating "Option Two" #7 "..only EUFI"
    And after setting the Rufus properties and hitting "Start"
    A new dialogue pops up. "Windows User Experience" window

    I was hoping you would have some dialogue explainging these options. But i will figure out what i want.
    I was just thinking maybe you want to update?

    Why bother with Rufus? Why not just create the standard installation flash drive with Microsoft's own Media Creation Tool?

    I wanted to be sure it installed as GPT on an uninitiated drive.

    Which option should I use


    I'm building a new system and want to use Brink's Tutorial to create a bootable USB flash drive with the latest versionn of Windows. Does it create the Win 10 version current installed on my PC or does it only install the latest versionn as of the date it was created?

    Since I will be using a bootable USB drive which option of Brink's tutorial shouldl I use.

    I know I can use my original product key that came with my Winodws 10 Pro to activate. I have a seperate questions about activating. I saw a YouTube video from JayzTwoCents, says when installing Windows 10 on a new system to click "I don't have a product key" until all the drivers are installed ( I think that was the reason)

    So my 3 questoions are

    1. which of brink's options should I use
    2. Does it create the Win 10 version current installed on my PC or does it only install the latest versionn as of the date it was created?
    3. is it a good idea to click I'I don't have a product key while installing Windows 10 if so why??

    Thanks as always

    All you have to do is boot the flash drive in UEFI mode and it will install Windows 10 in UEFI mode. However, I would just leave all the options blank in the menu that you posted for Rufus.

    1 and 2, Just use Microsoft's provided Media Creation Tool to create the USB flash drive. It will create a USB flash drive of the latest version of Windows 10, regardless of what is installed on the computer you are running it on.

    3. It doesn't really matter.

    Any pros or cons not entering my product key right away? I will try to find the YouTube video to see why he suggests doing it that way

    Some OEM product keys may not be accepted at the OOBE screen.

    MCT does that automatically depending on if bios is set to uefi.
