    hello everyone,

    Im currently a new pc builder and just finished putting together my pc. Currently I'm using a MSI H110 Gaming mobo and I'm able to enter bios. I made a bootable usb drive with windows 8.1 on my mac with OS X el-capitan. Ive changed the boot order to my USB. The issue is that the Bios recognizes my USB but it won't boot windows 8.1 os. Im not entirely sure if its because i made the drive on a mac or if the settings on the bios that are needed to support windows 8.1 install.

    Dose this mac have a dvd burner? If so, just burn the iso file to the dvd. I assume you have an iso file and that is what you used to attempt to make the usb.
    Another option would be to use the mac version of this program to make the bootable usb.
