You need to boot from UEFI Compatibility Support Module mode. UEFI CSM provides compatibility support for traditional legacy BIOS, so you can boot BIOS-based systems .
Thank for looking into this, I don't have these options in my BIOS menu anywhere - these machines don't have the legacy mode available in the menus.
If you have a UEFI-compatible motherboard, in the boot menu, each removable device have two options: boot a device normally or boot it in UEFI, the UEFI option have a "UEFI: " prefix.
You need to boot from the normall device.
That's what is so painful about the Asus T100, it doesn't have many boot options. I've attached some screen prints of my system. I have called them in the meantime and confirmed that not only is it impossible to boot from the USB drive it is also impossible to restore a system image that way. It is only possible to boot a windows recovery file apparently which has put me in a dilemma...
I can't attach the remaining screen prints because I've reached my quota. So I'll just type the last two screens out:
Administrator Password Status NOT INSTALLED
User Password Status NOT INSTALLED
Secure Boot Menu
Save & Exit (SCREEN)
Save Changes and Exit
Discard Changes and Exit
Windows Boot Manager
UEFI: SanDisk Cruzer 8.02
Launch EFI Shell from filesystem device
That's all on my boot menu.
