Installing Garuda KDE Dr460nized

I am trying to install Garuda from live session. I get as far as the partition ( am doing this manually) I formatted the partition and tried to install and received a message saying Garuda needs a Fat32 Partition, EFI boot and boot flag and that I need to return to set this up on the Partition. When I try this the Next button is greyed out, so I can not proceed.
Could someone give some advice. I am confused.
Thank you,

You need an EFI partition for the EFI boot files. Example as linked from the Garuda wiki page:


Thank you for your advice. I found the problem was in the BIOS. I needed to change the settings to UEFI only, then I was able to install.
