Hi guys i'm having problem with my Dell XPS 15 9570 with this tutorial and other on the web.

Has anyone tried it and does it work? I can't in any way read from a Usb Drive.
I tried 5 USB Drive and my Bios does not see them, does anyone have a solution? I can see only my Hard Disk and if i'm going in BIOS Setup / BOOT Sequence/ EFI Boot Selection i can not see the USB too.

"Secure Boot Enable" is unchecked
"Sata Operation" is AHCI and not RAID ON

I tried also to download Mojave and installed on USB drive via TransMac but same issue, i can not see the it in the Bios, i watched so many tutorial and guide the last 3 days and i'm getting crazy :)

Not recognizing the drives sounds like you don't have USB booting enabled. You need to manually activate normal usb booting and usb-c booting in your bios as well as secure boot and AHCI.

USB Booting:
Settings > System Configuration > USB Configuration > Check "Enable USB Boot Support"

USB-C Booting:
Settings > System Configuration > Thunderbolt Adapter Configuration > Check "Enable Thunderbolt Technology Support" and "Enable Thunderbolt Adapter Boot Support"

Good luck!
