Go to solution Solved by LogicalDrm,

FAT32. You also might need to select between MBR and GPT if you are installing onto older laptop or mobo.

Hi, Im not sure which of these to select. If someone could help me up, that would be great. Thanks!

Are you installing in UEFI or are you installing on an old legacy BIOS system?

 

If you are installing on UEFI, you don't need Rufus. Just format your USB drive as FAT32, then use 7zip to extract the ISO file (or double-click to mount it, then Ctrl-A and copy all the files from the virtual drive) and then copy the files to your USB drive. Thats all, it should boot fine with UEFI.

 

If you are using BIOS, then use Rufus and select MBR for BIOS and it will automatically use NTFS.
