Hello good people.

I have been having a massive amount of problems with my Windows Installation recently leading me to attempt a complete re-installation.
However, no matter what i try i cannot manage to get the BIOS to recognize the boot drive. I have tried all of the following:
  • Formats NFTS, FAT32 and exFAT on the USB drive
  • Both Rufus, YUMI and the regular media creation tool for Boot Drive creation.
  • Enabling and Disabling Legacy USB support in the Bios
  • All USB ports on the computer, 2.0 and 3.0
  • all USB drivers are up to date
I have read that Gigabyte BIOS' can be quite difficult to get to recognize a USB Boot Drive.
I'm wondering if there are any other methods i could try, perhaps a different USB drive

Specifications
  • FX-8350 AMD Processor
  • 16GB of DDR3 Ram
  • Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 R2
  • BIOS: F1 (no other versions)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • No Optical Drives
Thank you in advance :)
