I am using rufus 3.8.1580 to create a windows 7 64 bit iso on a 16 gb flash drive. Do I go with the automatically selected options of rufus got and uefi (non csm) ETFs file type. Or do I change it to mbr... not sure what options because this is my first time making a windows 7 iso
The boot media created by Rufus is dependent on the target system. In case of a mismatch, the installation will fail.
The possible combinations for the parameters "Partition scheme", "Target system" and "File system" are as follows:
Partition scheme: GPT Target system: UEFI (non CSM) File system: FAT32
Legacy BIOS only
Partition scheme: MBR Target system: BIOS (or UEFI-CSM) File system: NTFS
Dual UEFI + Legacy BIOS
Press "Alt + E" Partition scheme: MBR Target system: BIOS or UEFI File system: FAT32 If the ISO file contains files larger than 4GB, choose NTFS.
The ISO to use should be chosen with attention to properties such as UEFI/BIOS and 32/64-bits target.
