This is deprecated by

"Please note, that Debian advises not using "unetbootin" for this task.
 It can cause difficult-to-diagnose problems with booting and installing,
 so is not recommended."

Rather copy the ISO image flatly to the base device file of the USB stick.
The FAQ proposes

  cp <file> <device>


  dd if=<file> of=<device> bs=4M; sync

(<device> has to be e.g. /dev/sdc, not a partition device like /dev/sdc1.)

The ISOs do have boot entries for EFI from DVD and from USB stick.
Probably unetbootin did not copy the EFI System Partition from the ISO.

Have a nice day :)
