    Should I leave it at DD mode or select ISO mode? If I pick DD I don't see the actual iso unless I choose (show) 'all files'.

    It doesn't matter which mode do you choose. As soon as you select the iso image, rufus automatically switches to DD mode which i hate it because i prefer ISO mode. Rufus does the same with 2017.1 iso. Anyway just use DD mode and wait for its completion. Then boot the USB.

    For partition scheme and target system type I have:
    MBR partition scheme for BIOS and UEFI-CSM
    Is this right?

    Rufus didn't allow me to select UEFI alone so I used the above setting in Rufus.

    It's fine. Just boot the USB now.

    What about step 3, step 4, step 5? Should I follow it? Or just go straight to boot usb like you said?

    4. Download bootx64.efi, MokManager.efi (don't know if this is needed, but I just do it anyway), and grubx64.efi from here: ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/rele...4/os/EFI/BOOT/
    then put them into /EFI/Boot folder you created in step 3.

    5. Create a file named grub.cfg in /EFI/Boot in your USB with the following contents:
    Note: You can download the file here too: Attachment 307. But make sure you put it into /EFI/Boot folder in your USB along with the 3 files in step 4 and change the name to grub.cfg. See Picture.

    I went into BIOS, set it to boot from USB containing the weekly image (under uefi mode), saved, exited.
    After that the computer restarted, the usb flashed it's lights, however all I saw was the logo of the computers brand for minutes on end. I waited for Kali install process but never happened. After waiting a while, nothing other than viewing the logo of the computer. So I powered off.

    It's is hard to tell about your existing problem without looking in PC what may have causing this issue. I cannot help beyond that except how to boot kali and creating bootable USB. Keep in UEFI mode and make fresh install of kali 2017.1. It is a tested version.

    i downloaded "kali-linux-2017.1-amd64.iso" i have used "rufus-2.15p.exe", "Etcher-1.0.0-win32-x64.exe" and "unetbootin-windows-638.exe" to write the image to my 16GB USB Thumbstick.
    no matter how i do it, it will not make it past UEFI bios with secure boot enabled.
    when i use Etecher and ubuntu-17.04-desktop-amd64.iso it will pass.
    what gives?
    5 pages here and no clear way to boot with uefi secure boot enabled bios?
