There are some negative factors caused by being at home for a long time. One of these is our computers, whose usage times have increased significantly. My computer, which we heard a lot lately, has slowed down, there is a problem but I cannot solve it. UEFI Windows 10 USB preparation guide is with you.
What is UEFI?
The full extension of UEFI is “Unified Extensible Firmware Interface”, in other words, “Unified Extended Software Interface” in Turkish. It is a new firmware that replaces the old BIOS. In new generation systems, UEFI is used instead of BIOS.
Thanks to UEFI setup, we can format our disks as GPT (GUID Partition Table). This method allows us to use 2TB and higher disks at full capacity. If you wish, let’s list the things we need without extending too much;
– USB memory with a capacity of at least 4 GB (preferably USB 3.0)
– Rufus software
– Windows 10 Version 2004 Build 19041.264 x64 ISO file download
UEFI Windows 10 USB preparation guide
Step 1: After downloading the Rufus software and ISO file, insert your free USB stick into your computer with the features we specified. Then open Rufus. In the window that comes up, let’s first select the device on which we will write the Windows 10 ISO file.
Step 2: After selecting the USB memory to process, we select the Windows 10 ISO file that we downloaded under the boot selection name.
Step 3: In our next step, we need to set the image option. Here we leave the Standard Windows Installation option fixed. In the partition layout section, we have two options, GPT and MBR.
Here we need to be careful; If you have a device with a new generation BIOS interface, you need to choose the GPT option, if you have a device with a new generation BIOS interface, you should choose the MBR option.
We don’t need to change the target system setting either.
Step 4: When we get to the formatting options, type the new name you want to give to your USB as volume label. We leave the file system and allocation unit size setting in the default options set by Rufus.
In advanced formatting options, we can start the writing process by pressing “Quick Format” and “Create extended label and icon files” option and pressing Start.
Upon completion of the writing process, our UEFI Windows 10 USB memory stick is ready for successful installation successfully.
Step 5: Before starting Windows 10 installation, we need to make an important adjustment. Enter the BIOS settings of your device. Enable AHCI Mode here.
Step 6: Let’s adjust the BIOS settings to start your computer from USB immediately. When you enter the BIOS, enter the Boot tab, bring your USB disk to the top of the list in the list that comes up. When you save and restart the system by pressing the F10 key, your system will start by working via USB.
You can have the latest version of Windows 10 by following the installation steps, you can solve your problems by clean installation.
