  1. Hi, i have a problem with my working multiboot stick, when i choose the menu option to boot the first internal disk, it returns back to the grub menu.lst

    • That’s quite interesting report, never had such so far. How many internal disks do you have? Are there any other external disks or sd card readers?
      As a workaround, you could always use BIOS/UEFI boot menu to boot the internal disk.

      • I have a SSD and a HDD, and a SD card reader, but when shifthd.bat runs, it only detects the usb stick, outputing “found 1 disk, set USB disk to hd0”

        Except this bug i have since a long time, also on other sticks i made, your tool is absolutely fantastic, easily customizable, fast and efficient for basic installs/bootCDs (in fact i want an option to boot on hard disk from grub to be able to test kon-boot, that have to be loaded just before windows, I will try from UEFI menu tho)

        • So, from UEFI i can only boot windows normally, i’m not able to run anything beforehand, so in this case the usb stick is useless and i can’t still try my tool.

        • In UEFI only Windows sources are supported.
          As for the boot issue and only 1 disk detected- don’t think this can be fixed without support from grub4dos developers. You can start a new topic in grub4dos subforum with all the details. If you go that route, please post here the topic URL

  2. how to merge the split iso files… i wanted to re use the iso file only from the bootable usb and it is in two forms named 001 and 002 file respectively, the first file is larger and can be opened with winrar or any other software but the second one is not accessable so is there anyone here who knows the workaround behind this without redownloading the whole new iso file.

    • copy /b ISO.001 + ISO.002 ISO.iso

      Or use FFSJ.exe in \WinSetupFromUSB-1-9\files\tools\

      Bear in mind that you cannot copy the resulting file on the same USB disk if it’s formatted in FAT32 as it can’t have files larger than 4 GB.

  3. Hello. Someone can help with one question? I have write all necessary boot isos to flash card and there are a lot of free space left on it. Can I create empty folder (name like – Program_Setups) in the root of flash card and copy there my programs installation files, will not damage this the bootloader? Would be very appriciate for answer!

    • If you mean some installation files and not moving the files in WINSETUP folder, then that’s fine, you can add other folders as you wish, nothing will get broken as long as you do not move what the program created.

      • Thank you very much! I have spend a lot of time to write all necessary boot ISOs and don’t want to ruin all, that’s why writed post before! Thanks again for the advice, I’ll try to add folder and copy there Setups.

  4. How to properly format a 1TB USB 3.0 External HDD to work with this software? Tried NTFS, Fat32, still says no USB drives found. Have not found any FAQs or Tutorials for this but found comments suggesting it works. I don’t want to have to carry around a bunch of USBs vs a large HDD. Thanks.

    • Assuming the question is how to detect that drive.
      If it’s not shown in the list USB, then Windows is not detecting it as USB.

      Click on advanced options and select “display disks on all interfaces” (FAQ #7).
      Be very careful not to select the internal disk when formatting.

  5. so i created a bootable usb through your program. Ive setup the boot order to boot from usb. On the usb I have Windows 10 and Ubuntu. when booting the usb the only option I have is to reinstall windows 10, is there a way around this?
