Well thanks for the continued failure of support for anything other than the 'mighty Windows' world.
I didn't bother checking back earlier as I had heard that support here was vague to non-existant.
Go ask Apple. Go ask Intel. Goto He$%^$$&^%
Please do not blame companies for not entering or fully supporting Apple's curated ecosystem.
The bootable disk is OS independent as it is before the OS loads. Windows has absolutely nothing to do with firmware updates. The underlying hardware and protocols are exactly the same. Intel chipset, EFI, SATA, ATA, ect.... exactly the same.
The most likely cause is a bad burn or corrupted image. This is relatively common with burning .iso disks... try using a different burner application and use the lowest possible write speed.
