In this post I am going to show the Technic of Creating UEFI Bootable USB Drive for Windows 10
There are many ways to create a bootable USB drive for windows 10 such as through cmd (command Prompt) and with many other software programs. If you want to know how create a bootable USB drive through cmd visit our previews post or click Here. Creating UEFI bootable USB drive is for those computers which have GPT (Guide Partition Table) partition.
Sometimes it happens that our computer’s Hard Drive have GPT partition and we have created MBR bootable USB drive. In this way, these two partition tables do not match with each other. So, that is why we are not able to change the windows and it needs to be partitioned newly but we lose all our data what we have inside the Hard Drive of our computer which we do not want that to happen. So, after this there is no need of partitioning every time just for changing windows.
Before creating UEFI bootable USB flash you must know that which partition table has your computer GPT (Guide Partition Table) or MBR (Master Boot Record). If your computer has MBR partition table the created that is ok because MBR partition is compatible with many software programs. If it doesn’t have GPT partition table, you must create UEFI bootable USB drive. The reason is that you will not be able to change windows.
Creating UEFI USB Bootable Drive:
Checking the kind of partition tables is very easy, just take pressed Windows Key and press R when run is opened type (Diskpart) and press the Enter button, click On Yes.
Type List Disk and press Enter. If there is a star (*) under the GPT so that HDD has GPT partition table. If there is no any star (*) so that is MBR.
For creating UEFI bootable USB drive we need a small size software which is called Rufus. First download this software, for downloading this software open the browser and search Rufus or click Here. The goodness of this software is this that it is completely free and downloading of this software needs no payment.
Note: We mostly need creating UEFI bootable USB drive for GPT partition table, when we want to change windows. But if we have a MBR bootable USB drive for GPT Partition table we unable to change windows.
Once you download Rufus insert your USB flash which must has at least 8GB capacity Double click on software click on Yes.
If you insert one USB drive Rufus automatically selects that for you. Click on Select for selecting the Power ISO setup of windows then select your partition scheme after setting all click on start. When it completes USB flash drive is for changing windows.
Note: Before doing this make sure that you have copied all your necessary data from your USB drive because Rufus formats the USB drive. If you do not copy your files you will lose all of them.
