    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!

    There seem to be some issues booting UEFI USB 3.0 bootable OS install media Try an 8GB USB 2.0 Thumb Drive. Boot it by hitting the F8 key should bring up a boot menu not sure on your particular MB thats what brings is up on my Z97 MB look in your manual for that exact information or check in at ROG forum the exact F** key will be known there and you do need to boot it UEFI USB OS media not just USB OS Media

    You might try spamming the Esc key as you boot up to bring up the boot override window, where you can select the UEFI USB to boot from.
