    T100TAF won't boot from USB

    Hi
    I want to perform a clean install of a Linux Mint system, but I found out that my device doesn't want to boot from any usb stick.
    I tried to make them bootable with Rufus and Universal USB Installer, but neither Linux Mint or Windows 10 are not booting.
    I also have updated BIOS with Winflash to the latest version 300 and disabled Windows 10 Fast Startup.
    What I set in UEFI is disable secure boot and set boot option to the USB stick - their names are recognized properly. I read about some "enable Launch CSM" but there is no setting like this, all I can do is to change the boot order.
    I even tried to boot from a micro-usb pendrive connected directly to the tablet but it also didn't work.
    Booting from USB causes going back to UEFI.

    An external optical drive is not even visible in UEFI.

    Hello, did you find a way to boot from a USB ? I received a T100TAF with windows 8.1 installed, and I'm trying to boot from a USB stick to install Windows 10.

    I could not manage to boot from the usb stick despite that I disabled secure boot in the bios.

    Thanks

    Adrien

    Ok, I manage to create a bootable USB key with the Windows tool (https://www.microsoft.com/fr-fr/soft...load/windows10). I selected the 32 bits versions. I booted on the USB via the ESC key, installed Windows 10 (external keyboard and mouse during the installation) and activated Windows 10 with the Windows 8.1 serial number and it worked !

    Hello; Could you please help me? I have an ASUS Transformer Tablet T100TAF to run the "Diskpart" command and clean all the partitions. That was my mistake.
    Now I want to install Windows but it does not show me the storage drive or hard drive (eMMC).
    How can I show the unit and install the Windows ???
    Investigate and I knew about "Remo Recovery Windows" it tells me that this program recovers even partitions.
    What do you advise me ???
    I appreciate your support.
    William
