Recommended Settings for RUFUS

Usually, the default settings would be enough, and you can start the process of Creating your Windows 10 USB or Linux USB boot media. For those of you who would like to know your hardware better, we’ll have a brief look. Basically, the two types of low-level software that are the first to run when a computer starts are UEFI and BIOS. Barring old hardware, most of the newer machines come with UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface). UEFI is much more capable than Legacy BIOS. Fortunately, We have written a whole article explaining just those. So, Go check UEFI, BIOS, GPT, MBR – What’s the Difference? to know everything that you need to know about that topic. Furthermore, if you want to know the recommended settings for each of the partition scheme, we will list the same below. Create Bootable Windows 10 USB with UEFI Partition scheme: GPT. Target System type: UEFI. File System: FAT32. Cluster Size: select the 4096 bytes(Default). In Format Options, Check both: Quick format. Create extended label and icon files. Create Bootable Windows 10 USB using Legacy BIOS Partition scheme: MBR. Target System type: BIOS or UEFI-CSM. File System: NTFS. Cluster Size: select the 4096 bytes(Default). In Format Options, Check both: Quick format. Create extended label and icon files. Another thing to look for in the case of Creating Linux Boot media is that RUFUS will check for updated Syslinux/GRUB files. Consequently, a window popup will appear asking you to choose whether to download the newer files from the server or to continue using the ones in the application.
