uefi boot usb windows 8 - desty_aya - 06-05-2015
i m trying to create an uefi boot usb with windows 8.1 with WinToUSB, but i dont understand how the software works, so i hope someone can help me with
i use windows 7 pro x64 with wintousb 2.1 and 2.2, both without luck
im trying to install windows 8.1 pro on an usb stick (uefi bootable)
so i open
- select my windows 8.1 iso
- click next
- select my usb drive 32gb (i assume it will ask me for uefi bootable or bios bootable??? but i didnt)
- wintousb format my usb stick, without asking uefi or bios or both bootable? (do i need to do something about it myself?)
- wintousb installing, but the stick does not work?
i saw this in the manual:
any suggestion and help would be much appreciate
Thanks in advance

WinToUSB will automatically format the usb stick to NTFS, and this type USB drive can only support booting BIOS-based computers.
If you want to boot a UEFI-based computer, you need to use a USB hard disk or a Windows To Go Certified Drives to create windows to go workspace.
