That's most likely because the media you created was NOT for UEFI booting -- and therefore, wants an  MBR-formatted drive for installation.


You need to download the ISO file again and this time, use the free RUFUS utility to create UEFI boot media.  You can get RUFUS from here:  Rufus - The Official Website (Download, New Releases)
