Hey guys,
I have successfully installed macOS High Sierra using Clover on my dell inspiron 5559. Now I am trying to install Windows 10, I have used rufus with GPT partition scheme for UEFI.
When I boot with USB, under UEFI there is no option to boot from USB. I can boot however using MBR.
I know this is hackintosh specific as it had happened before but I can’t find a solution.
Under UEFI there is an option to Add Boot Options but don’t know how to use it.

P.S. I had working dual boot setup on the laptop but I formatted the entire drive to start from scratch (so previous clover bootloader gets removed)
Please help me. I am now stuck with only macOS installed. Please guide me how to proceed with Windows installation.

No need for Rufus. For UEFI install, you can create a FAT32 USB then copy the Win10 ISO image to the USB.

Ok I will try but the underline issue is USB not available under UEFI boot options. Will this fix?
Also you said copy Win10 iso. You mean that after mounting I should copy the contents of the iso and not the iso itself, right?

Indicates your USB was created incorrectly.

Correct.
Note also that Microsoft provides a tool that will create a Win10 installer USB (noob friendly).
