Asus Tuf B450m plus build won't boot from USB to install windows. First build.

I know I must be doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what. I change the boot order in BIOS and it goes right back. I mash F8 on wakeup and select the usb there and still nothing. USB is a Kingston that I created an install on from the Microsoft website (on a Mac). I'm two seconds from going to target and buying the media installer they sell... Is it bc I'm doing it on a Mac?

    Hello @Keegan! Welcome to the Community.

    How exactly did you create the media from your Mac? If you just downloaded the .iso file and transferred it over to the drive, that won't work unfortunately. 

    You actually have to install the ISO on the USB drive. On a Windows PC you can download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft and it will do it all for you basically, but on a Mac you have to go through a different process. You should be able to use Boot Camp Assistant to do it, try following this guide:

  • Hi Tony,
    I performed the bootcamp installation media action, but it still wasn't working. I eventually created the install tool on my dad's HP and it ended up working. I'm all set, but thanks for replying!

    Try this, in your BIOS look for the boot menu. There should be setting there called CSM, it'll be disabled by default. Enable this, save and exit then see if the drive is detected. ASUS typically uses F7 or F8 as a boot menu option.
