  1. Dear SIr,

    Kindly ,Help Me How to create multi Bootable Operating system in External Hard Drive Like External SSD

  2. Creating USB bootable from win setup from usb is not recognizing in new systems having uefi mode. I have tried it in my Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY_FX505DY but USB will not be recognize as bootable. Then I try rufus and using GPT (UEFI non CSM) it works. When using MBR it is not recognizing by the boot mode of laptop. Kindly look in to this matter.

        • You need to use FAT32 for UEFI boot.
          There must have been a warning message from the program too, that if you need UEFI boot FAT32 should be used.

          • I have used it and it doesn’t worked. As it is showing USB drive at Bootable option on start up, but not booting from the USB.

            • Are there other options in BIOS/UEFI which might be interfering?
              Did you reformat the USB disk and start from scratch?

              • I just want you to take a look at this type of boot options if the bootable pen drive is working or not. Because my experience previously with win set up is good this time it does’t favor the luck for me as it has other option which are useful. So kindly look in to this matter.
                Thanks and Regards

                • I don’t think I can help more on this case, don’t have same hardware to reproduce the problem, nor have any ideas what else to try

  3. Dear all please i need your assistance kindly tell me when i am trying to create my 64GB usb as multi bootable it always gives me error and said 64GB is too big something like that how would i create my 64GB usb as bootable and what is this force chs option in formatting menu.

  4. I am having iso of RHEL5.3, RHEL6.5 and linuxmint-20-cinnamon-64bit installation DVD. These three iso are added to the USB using WinSetupFromUSB (Linux ISO/Other Grub4dos compatible ISO). Successfully added and the USD is tested and seen that PC is booted from USB. The installation of RHEL5.3 or RHEL6.5 will proceed upto installation image selection. It is expecting the extracted installation image but unfortunately the USB is having the iso of the installation DVD in the folder ISO. So the installation cannot proceed. There is no issue with the linuxmint-20-cinnamon-64bit. How to solve this issue.

    • Is that on USB stick or disk? If stick is os seen as removable or fixed disk?
      Older Debian based distros behaved differently on fixed disk.
      Try RHEL5 or 6 only on another USB stick, which must be removable if the current one is fixed.

      • It is on USB Stick and the OS detects as a removable stick. I only need to create a USB stick from which I can install RHEL5 and RHEL6. After creating the USB, if it is tested in a PC, booting from the stick shows the menu for installation of RHEL5 and RHEL6. Both works and stops at a point where it cannot find the installation media. Provision is there to select the installation source files and if the usb is pointed, then also it is unable to located the instillation files). Is it because the installation files are still inside the iso that is in the ISO folder and the installer (anaconda) have no idea to get the installation files from iso?

        • ISOs are mapped to a fake partition nearly all modern Linux distros are happy with, and find their source files on that fake partition without further action.
          That partition survives the entire boot process.
          RHEL 5 and 6 are quite old, based on old setup scripts which search specific locations only I would imagine.
          Guess you can troubleshoot a bit by looking at the logs where it searches for setup files. Can also try dropping to shell and manually mount the ISO.

          • It is seen that the iso is mounted to a fake partition /dev/sdb4. The files are readable but the installer fails to see it. If the installer is pointed to this location for media files, it is not accepting as it is expecting an image. So the location /dev/sdb1/ISO/rhel5.iso was pointed (only if formatted as FAT32), and the installer exited abnormally. I think for old Linux Distros, we need to find some workaround.

      • “Why don’t you put program folder in root of C or D drive and try again?”
        Really works, it was necessary to move to the directory with Windows.

        Prompt the correct settings for Legacy & UEFI All In One
        force CHS need to include?
        and any other parameter to enable or disable.

    • Seems we are lost in translation, error is still the same, no disk space in R: to extract boot.wim

      As mentioned previously- please move/copy WinSetupFromUSB folder from R: to C: or D: and start the program from the new location in C or D.


  5. Prompt the correct settings for Legacy & UEFI All In One
    force CHS need to include?
    and any other parameter to enable or disable.

    • Leave default values.

      Doubt Windows folder is necessary, just don’t use R drive since there is either no disk space or the SD card is going faulty.
