In order to benefit from the new UEFI features (including faster system startup), you will have to prepare your USB device slightly different.
Main take-away here: UEFI accepts boot loaders in files placed a the FAT formatted boot volume
To prepare your USB stick (4GB minimum) manually follow these steps:
Do you want to check if Windows is installed in such a way that its actually using UEFI, please consult my other blog post.
Hi, are you sure about second "clean" in the sequence? I'd say that this wipes the drive, so your previous steps will be lost.... but maybe I'm wrong:)
