    Thank you

  2. Hey guys, i’ve ran into one problem.

    Once Windows is installed in legacy the USB goes back automaticly to the UEFI boot menu. I would
    like to add a option to the UEFI menu to boot to the HDD but I can’t really find where to edit the menu. I’ve searched most files and there doesn’t seem to be an option like this.

    Thanks in advance.

    • It’s BIOS/UEFI firmware responsible for booting in one or another mode and from one or another disk.
      Can’t really understand how you installed in legacy mode, but after reboot it starts in UEFI mode.
      Without all the details what exactly you did, is impossible to advise further.
      Is the USB disk still connected?
      Does it boot from the USB disk after restart, rather than the internal disk?
      Need to mess with menus on which disk, the internal or the USB one?

      Try to be as detailed as possible.

  3. I’m using your application and like it too much.
    My question is : if I add many boot-able iso files and it works well, can I install any OS (Ubuntu or Windows) to be next to current boot-able iso files .
    if yes How please (guide me).

    • What do you mean by “to be next to current boot-able iso files”?

      You can add as many supported sources as you wish, as long as you have free disk space on the USB drive…

  4. I want to write Linux ISO or others Grub4Dos compatibles larger than FAT32 filesystem allowed and it can’t split it and write like in Windows based iSOs menu. Is it possible to add the split-divide option for any Large iso-files in further version? Or u could provide me with another solution in this program app

  5. Hi!

    Putting Windows 10 and Gandalf’s Windows 10 PE on a USB makes them show up in the boot menu, but Ubuntu 18.04 doesn’t. Ubuntu was added with the “Linux ISO/Other Grub4dos compatible ISO” option, and it does show up in the “menu.lst” file and the “ISO” folder on the USB.

    Is the latest version of Ubuntu not fully supported, or is there something else that needs to be done?

    • My best guess is that you are booting in UEFI mode. Only Windows sources are supported in UEFI mode. For other sources you need to use compatible/BIOS mode.

      Please read FAQ #9 above.

      • Thank you for the reply. It turns out that I was mistaken, because when I pressed Esc to close the boot manager, I could press F1 and F2 for different options, where F1 allowed for launching the Ubuntu setup with GRUB4DOS. Some error messages were displayed, but it actually worked all the way through to starting the live version of Ubuntu.

  6. i’m having problems with secure boot enabled bios, all my laptops and desktops are OEM and must have secure boot enable.
    i’ve created a multi windows installation SB and it works on non OEM pc’s, but when runing on OEM the BIOs blocks me becouse on the secure boot.
    is there a way to work this without disabling secure boot?

  7. when i try to burn windows 10 iso using winsetup from usb a box say this doesn’t seem to be a valid source or either or all of / sources/boot.wim, /bootmgr are missing or sourve not supported
    how i fix it ?? please help
