Hi Kevin, Rufus (Windows only) forces user to choose between BIOS or UEFI compatible mode by selecting respectively MBR or GPT partition scheme.

On Linux I mostly use Gnome Disk Utility (e.g. by right clicking on an ISO image and using 'Open with' menu) to create Live USB for BIOS and UEFI, but dd and Fedora Media Writer (available also for Windows and macOS) will create a universal Live USB as well. All details are in Fedora Quick Docs: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/creating-and-using-a-live-installation-image/

UEFI Fedora boot menu is all black and white. To boot in this mode you might need to either open BIOS boot menu (F8 or F12 are the most common shortcuts) and choose USB entry starting with UEFI, or disable support for legacy BIOS in BIOS/UEFI settings.
