Help needed. USB Boot device issue.

You'll want the one that says UEFI. Other one is for legacy support.

Hi,

 

I'm installing Win 10 from a USB drive on my new system. I ran into this issue where my USB is displayed as 2 different 'Partitions' in the Bios. Which one do I pick for installation?

 

I used Windows creator tool in order to install boot files on clean USB.

Do I put other one to the bottom of boot priority for the time being?

Shouldn't matter

Sorry to bother you again. By some dark magic, I now have 2 boot options, how do I delete the one I don't need.

 

I already did the setup for main one.

Can you show an image of the two options? Is it just in the BIOS or when you turn the PC on?

Did one of the drives previously contain an install of windows?

 

Yes, but I formatted it in the windows install.
