Hello everyone! I've just got my new Acer Swift 3 that someone right here on Tom's recommended I purchase and I'm thrilled with it so far let me just say. However, I'm trying to format and reinstall w10

I got into the BIOS but I can't find my USB to boot from. Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks for reading!

I got it to work, finally! I found out that when I did the RUFUS setup on this USB, I used MBR and this laptop needs it to be GPT.

Windows has installed nicely, crapware free :)

You have to change legancy mode in the boot menu settings.
After that you can restart and change the order of boot devices and you can install window from USB devices
