    Linx 10

    My friend has asked me to install Windows 10 Pro onto his Linx which came with home.

    I cannot for the life of me get into the bios to go to Windows 7 Pro and upgrade from there using the assistive technologies route.(he has bad eye sight).

    I have managed to get into the UEFI settings but no matter what I do, I cannot boot from the USB.

    Has anybody any knowledge of this as I am completely stumped by something that I have found so simple over the years?

    Appreciate the help.

    Is it that you can't work out how to set it to boot from USB, or it wont boot from the USB device you have?

    Disable UEFI security.

    ​I can't get into the bios to change the boot order. When I get into UEFI I can select to boot usb but it boots Windows up as normal.

    I dropped W10 Pro on a Linx 10 for a neighbour. Will see if I can get access to it tomorrow to see how the UEFI options are set on that device.

    ​I changed the usb to fat32 and it works. Strange as Windows usually has to be ntfs.
