    where is the legacy / csm bios option?

    Although I do see UEFI as the boot mode..

    you downloaded x64 version of win8.1?

    Info Overkill >

    Although UEFI boot is included in both x86 and x64 versions..

    x86 UEFI will ONLY boot on PC's with Atom Processor

    I had a hard time getting my Wife's Acer laptop to boot from an install thumb drive. I ended up creating it via the diskpart method, option 2 here, UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows . Any other method including rufus and the drive didn't show up in the boot menu. Even then it never ever showed the UEFI option in the boot menu. I was able to install in UEFI mode though. I didn't have to disable secure boot either. Other than boot order I didn't change any BIOS settings.

    I never ever got the UEFI option to show on the boot options screen. It just listed the thumb drive minus the UEFI part. It still installed in UEFI mode though. The Windows 7 DVD download tool is what I use for all my other PC's. It formats in NTFS though, which won't work for most UEFI installs, you need fat 32. I'm lost as to why you can't get it to work.

    Are you allowing the media creation tool to format the USB?
