    trying to make ubuntu uefi usb

    info from here. https://www.vanstechelman.eu/content/creating-an-uefi-bootable-linux-usb-stick?page=1

    Use Rufus as follows:
    1. Set “Partition scheme and target system type” to “GPT partition scheme for UEFI computer”.
    2. Set “File system” to “FAT32 (default)”
    3. Set “Cluster size” to “4096 bytes (default)”
    4. Select “Create a bootable disk using ISO”
    5. Select the Ubuntu ISO.
    6. Make sure that Rufus hasn’t changed the partitioning scheme after you have selected the ISO.

    GPT partition scheme

    Do I select GPT partition scheme because the hdd has a gpt partition scheme or is that just the default setting?

    This is necessary because

    This is necessary because some UEFI bootloaders don't recognize the USB stick if you select a different partition scheme.

    I used a CF52S non UEFI with Rufus to make the usb stick.
    Ubuntu 17 UEFI / GPT usb stick..
    No joy.
    Don't know for sure what the deal is with this 3E, but it appears that Windows 8 or 10 are the only OS options.
    I think it has to do with secureboot. Don't know for sure, but I am done fighting with it.
    It will stay win8 or be upgraded to win 10...
    Unless Jeff can build a usb stick that works with UEFI on the 3E

    I might try to build a usb stick right from the 3E. Not sure why that matters, but one of Jeff's video finds says it does. I am curious why it is so difficult to get a Linux UEFI usb stick.

    Thanks for all your insight Shawn. I could not find a way to boot up the usb and then I read all 7 pages of posts for this topic.
    I'll watch Sheepman's video and try some more. Does anyone know if there's a way to change boot order and possibly use a live cd or dvd image with an external optical drive? More reading needed.....this post seems promising:

    This link shows that maybe the default usb burner in MX might work:

    Sheepman, in item 1 above, what program did you burn the usb stick in EFI mode?

    I didn't burn one. Used 32 bit for practice. Downloading 64 bit now at a staggering 75 KB/s (average)

    Used MX Tools for everything after watching Dolphin's video a couple times.

    delete key on boot gets you into bios/uefi. Boot order can be changed.
    Maybe the usb stick does need DD to make it a "CD" and not a usb stick.

    It seems to me that rufus does automagically what Dolphin is saying.
    I tried every possible combo in rufus with mx16 and ubuntu.
    Nothing resulted in a bootable usb for the 3E.
    I dunno.
    I still think the inability to disable secureboot is the issue.
    Maybe a full HDD wipe would work. Then the windows//secureboot files would not cause a problem.

    Shawn...the boot attempts to bypass bios, fails and reverts to bios splash screen. Mainly because I'm using a W10 hdd that is not completely set up. I think the PATH to the recovery partition is not valid.
    edit: which is a good thing as I then instruct the bios to boot from USB.

    Thanks Cleve, I'm running LiveUSB now. Persistent. With all current updates.
