Microsoft has streamlined how we download and set up media with Windows 10, which may actually be confusing for some. Since systems today use Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) instead of BIOS (a replacement to standard BIOS), the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool is becoming redundant.

When you try to install Windows 10 using a bootable media; you may run into issues where the system will not recognize the new media or will return errors such as Installation failed due to GUID Partition Table

Here are two simple ways to create a bootable media on Windows 10.

Using Microsoft Media Creation Tool

Download Windows 10 and make sure that you have a minimum of 8GB USB storage to create the media.

To create bootable media using the Appuals way; you will need a program called Rufus which is a small utility to create bootable media for MBR and GPT Partitions.

PRO TIP: If the issue is with your computer or a laptop/notebook you should try using the Reimage Plus Software which can scan the repositories and replace corrupt and missing files. This works in most cases, where the issue is originated due to a system corruption. You can download Reimage Plus by Clicking Here

Rufus doesn’t install’s itself as it is a standalone utility. Download it here.

1. After Rufus and the ISO has been downloaded; open rufus and choose the Device (USB) which should be used as your bootable media.

2. Then, choose GPT partition scheme for UEFI and leave the File System & Cluster Size to default settings; remember to label the drive.

3. Check Create a bootable disk and ensure that the ISO Image is selected from the drop down, use the small drive icon to locate and choose the image.

4. Next, choose Start to finish.
