I don't know what the hell is going on here, i have created a Windows installation disk with Rufus, but it didn't work with the computer.
As a popular tool, it shouldn't happen like this .

I don't know what the hell you did with Rufus but you shoud use it in (hell) "DD mode" ...

Next time please try to use Search function first. There are several posts explaining your "issue" and how to handle it. Thanks :)
