Trying to install Win 10 on a Revo M1-601 and cannot boot to USB

MartQMartQ Member Posts: 4 New User
Creating Media with either Rufus or iso-usb.  Used GPT and MBR. Used Bios and UEFI modes, secure boot on and off.  Tested the media on another device and works perfectly.
What am i missing here?
Thanks in advance.

    Have you ever backed up the operating system provided by acer? Does the same problem occur when activating the f12bootmenu?

    In Uefi Mode there are no devices listed, In Bios mode there is only the PXE and the internal HDD.  If i let windows load i can see the USB drive plugged.

    Thanks

    Try converting the usb stick manually. Open the command prompt as an administrator and type:
    diskpart
    list disk
    sel disk x
    clean
    convert gpt
    creta partition primary
    format fs=fat32 quick
    assign

    Try FN F12
    Function (FN Key) and F12. 
    Instead of F12 alone.
    Please let us know if this works.

    Have tried both options.
    Used Diskpart to wipe and recreate partition, then Rufus to add ISO on GPT and still not seen either on Legacy or Uefi modes.
    Have ordered new flash drives and will post later after testing.
    Thanks for all the ideas.

    Guys,

    Many thanks - new flash drives arrived and worked first time.
