comment Create a UEFI bootable USB stick from an ISO image with GParted
@Marco. The UEFI specification requires an ESP to be FAT32 and there is no requirement for it to be marked bootable. If particular firmware requires a boot flag, or supports non-FAT32 that is a quality of implementation issue.

comment Loading & booting MINT from external SSD?
I suggest you take small steps first. Perhaps download and install Mint on a Live USB. There are lots of guides on the Internet on how to do this.. Simply downloading to a SSD does not make the SSD bootable.
