A while ago I installed linux (not debian, but I don't think that matters
here) onto a laptop with a pre-installed win10, there was not any problem
with the EFI/BIOS finding the usb thumb drive with the installer iso and
booting into it. Hence I doubt that the OP's problem is that windows
prevents him from booting the install media. I did not follow this thread
closely from the beginning, but I believe it is more likely that either
the installer drive was not set up correctly or that some Efi/Bios
setting is not correct. Or maybe it is one of these odd devices that have
been discussed here a couple of days ago in a different thread, which are
64bit machines with a 32bit EFI.
