    How to add WINPE boot entry to UEFI USB Windows installation stick?


    Howdy all.

    I have several usb sticks I have made with grub4dos that fills my use, but I miss UEFI options. After what I understand UEFI boot installation stick only boots windows images.

    I can successfully rename source folders from installation file s to source folder with WinPE wim in it - and boot from the UEFI boot. (I have currently 2 folders I switch from sources win10 and sources winPe,

    What I am looking for is a way to add a new entry to the UEFI BCD - so I can select from the boot menu to start installation or the winpe wim.

    I tried use EasyBCD and duplicate the entry then edited it to direct to another folder - but with no luck (not even a boot menu came up, just started installation).

    What I need is to add a way to load a different boot.wim

    :)

    UEFI install Windows 10 was A LOT OF work!

    Why would anyone bother with Rufus for Windows UEFI install media? Format the USB stick to FAT32 and drag and drop the files from the iso onto the USB stick. BAM instant UEFI boot drive.

    Trouble installing windows 7 on RAID in UEFI

    As the title says, I'm trying to install Windows on a RAID array in uefi on my Maximus V Formula. When using legacy ROM I can install just fine but I go into CSM and change settings to UEFI only, I can build the array in the UEFI Raid driver (IRST tab in "BIOS") but the array does not show up in the boot menu and when I try to install windows (boot from UEFI DVD drive), The drive does not show up in the Windows install. The next thing I tried was to enable UEFI and legacy oprom in CSM, boot from UEFI DVD drive and install to the RAID array (probably detected by legacy oprom) and it will install. After first reboot, Windows Boot manager will show up as an option in the BIOS boot menu so I set that as first boot device and reboot. I will get to the starting windows screen and then BSOD (too quick to get codes) The last thing I tried was Changing to legacy mode and installing windows to a different drive. once installed, I initialized the Raid array as GPT and rebooted, changed csm back to UEFI only but they RAID array still doesn't show in the boot device list so I repeated the earlier process hoping that It might work because I had initialized as GPT but it still BSODs on starting windows screen. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
