Yeah it's a Flash Drive. But I am formatting it again using RUFUS GPT, NTFS and let's see if it works. 

 

Update: It worked

Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 5 Quad Core - (8 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home/4 GB Graphics/NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1650) AN515-43-R3JU Gaming Laptop  (15.6 inch, Obsidian Black, 2.3 kg)

 

 

I want to install Windows 10 Pro but in the BIOS it don't show the USB drive I am using. (USB drive can't be any better, works like a charm, nothing wrong with it)

I tried Settings -> Update and Security -> Recovery -> Advance Startup but it said something that USB needs to be enabled from BIOS. 

Also tried F12 boot menu but it won't show anything. 

Just note that F12 boot menu is disabled by default, i'm aware of that and enabled it. But in the Boot Menu it shows only the currently installed Windows Hard Disk. 

There is no legacy support just UEFI and I need to format my PC. 

It's a known issue in Acer devices and how can I reinstall it?

Formatting NTFS will reduce the chance of it working, but always worth a try

When using the Microsoft own Win 10 Installation Media tool it usually works. No need for Rufus etc... 

 

Installed my Acer NB that way after I got it. 


2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)
