Before you start, you will need a USB Stick with 512 MB storage or more, a USB keyboard, a USB-hub, the latest image Generic UEFI Installer image which you can grab from: and also, the Image Writer Tool, which can be found at this link:
Step 1: First off, you will need to set up a bootable USB. Download the Image Writer Tool, extract the ”Win32DiskImager.exe,” and once that’s done, find the .img file you downloaded previously and hit “Write.”
