So I've retried win2usb process 4 times now trying legacy and vhd options. I'm trying to install Windows 10 on a. Samsung t3 for use on a MacBook Pro. I've initialised the efi partition as GPD 100mb in size as fat32. The second partition is the remainder size of the ssd as ntfs. The process goes through the conversion from the Windows ISo to the written Samsung ssd successfully each time.
When I reboot the MacBook Pro holding down the alt key the Samsung ssd never appears as a boot option
What to do?

Apple says "If you're using an external USB hub with several connected USB devices, the external USB storage device you wish to start from may not be recognized, or, may need to be connected directly into one of the computers USB ports instead. Some computer keyboards that include USB ports may not supply enough power to some external USB hard drives."
Could you tell us which partitioning tool you are using to partition this disk? Windows Disk Management tool or other third-party partitioning tool? We recommend using built-in Windows Disk Management to partition the disk.
In theory, as long as there is a FAT32 partition on a GPT disk, then the disk will appear as a EFI boot option.
If you have anther EFI-based Windows PC, we recommend that you try Samsung t3 on that PC to check whether it can be detected. And if you have anther USB flash drive, we recommend using it to create a Windows To Go drive then try it on the MacBook Pro.
