Based on the information posted where http://apple.stackex...ge.com/a/189399it seems that the way you create the USB flash is only compatible with booting from the flash drive in UEFI mode

 

Can you access a boot menu during boot to select UEFI boot with the flash drive name?

Sleep Dude, Which part of the making of the USB drive do you think it would be? Do you think I should just try the whole thing again?
Thanks

From what I found online it doesn't seem you have any options to change during the process to transfer Windows 10 to the flash drive.

 

Can you answer my other question please.

Power on the machine and immediately start pressing the F11 key

 

Tell me the options you have on the menu or better post a photo if possible.

I think the attachment worked? If not here are the three options on screen;
AHCI P5: SAMSUNG MZ7PC128HAFU-0 (Samsung SSD)
USB: Generic STORAGE DEVICE 945 (the USB with the OS on it)
UEFI: Generic STORAGE DEVICE 9451

One of life`s mysteries  :headscratch:

 

What I would suggest you do once Windows has been installed, fully updated and you have installed the drivers for the MB and any other devices is restart the computer to boot into the BIOS, once in the BIOS make a written note of what the settings are and store the information somewhere safe in case of any similar problem in the future.

 

Thanks for the additional assistance SleepyDude :thumbsup:
