    -Rufus(GPT FAT32 settings) Win8.1 64bit Normal iso downloaded with WinMediaTool Results: Same as above\
    -Diskpart etc etc mounted same ISO same results I guess Im SOL...
    Other only things i can think of is trying another thumbdrive or trying Win8

    Are your usb ports Blue 3.0 or black 2.0?

    SecureBoot off?

    And I'm not talking Fast Boot, as your bios pic shows

    You'll have to turn secure boot off if you try to boot from anything other than Windows 8 or Windows 10.
