Cannot Install Or Boot Build (Samsung) Slate From USB For Windows 8 Install

I wanted to do a completely clean install, wiping all the partitions, for my Windows 8 installation on my Build Slate (tablet) PC. I used the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool to prep a USB stick but I could not get the slate to boot from it.  Some googling, and I found the reason why.

The UEFI BIOS will not boot from an NTFS formatted USB stick. Doh!  I followed the instructions on the above post to prep a new USB stick to install Windows 8, and successfully got the install from USB to start up.
