  1. You are selecting boot from USB as first boot device and save and exit?

    usb is bootable
  5. Is the UEFI recognizing the drive? Is all USB support enabled in UEFI?

    usb device is recognizes the drive, usb is number one in boot priority, and usb support is fully initialized
  7. Then I do not understand what is going on since it looks like you are doing everything right.

    this makes no sense to me, its new out of the box, all the settings are right, but it wont boot past uefi

    If you press enter on the drive in the BOOT override section of UEFI does it BOOT the drive then or not? If not, I think something wrong with the installer on the USB stick or some strange compatibility issue.
