Actually, Al, that's not entirely true.
Phil Broughton has produced a couple of Pups which work with UEFI. Tahrpup64 6.0.6 (an upgrade from 6.0.5) does, and so does the newest version of XenialPup. And of course, FatDog has worked with UEFI for quite some time; the FatDog devs, Kirk & jamesbond, were the ones who shared the UEFI 'shim' with the rest of the Woof-CE community.
Tahr64 6.0.6:- http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-tahr/iso/tahrpup%20-6.0-CE/tahr-6.0.6-uefi.iso
XenialPup64 184.108.40.206:- http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/test/xenialpup/xenialpup64-220.127.116.11-uefi.iso
FatDog 710:- http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/iso/Fatdog64-710.iso
As I understand it, these Pups have all been set up to auto-detect UEFI or MBR, and to load the appropriate modules accordingly. No need to mess around with SecureBoot, and all that junk. And as I'm sure you know yourself, there's no need to 'install' Pup to the internal HDD, as each & every Pup is designed to work entirely from a flash drive, if required.
Not being au fait with modern Windows (and modern hardware), I can't speak from experience, but I'm pretty certain with the above-mentioned Pups that if you can get to a one-time, or boot options Menu on the Win 10 machine, that Pup should boot straight up off the flash drive.....especially if Grub4DOS is installed to the flash drive itself.
Cat keeps saying that Puppy needs to move to 64-bit, and UEFI; I keep telling him that it is, but.....I get the impression he's not listening to me!
