    Hello,

    I have a Zephyrus M - I just installed a new SSD M.2 Drive and I am trying to install fresh windows on it but it won't recognize my bootable USB drive. What do I do? I have tried on 2 different drives. The first drive is USB 3.0 128GB and the 2nd is USB 3.0 32GB. I made the bootable USB using Windows Tool as well as RUFUS. I am using the official Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Windows tool and rufus should work. Try DD Image with rufus and Win10 should normally use an UEFI partition sheme.
    Otherwise you can try to deactivate secure boot in the BIOS/UEFI.

    I did disable secure boot as well as fast boot. I used RUFUS with UEFI Partition.

    USB should be USB 2.0 Fat 32 format. Others have had issues using USB 3.0 USB thumb drives
