    How to build a multi-boot USB under UEFI


    I am trying to build a multi-boot USB under UEFI but am having no luck. I am trying to build a 4GB USB with the following bootable applications:
    - Acronis Boot Media 2017
    - Clonezilla 2.6.3.7
    - GParted 1.0.0.5
    - Samsung SSD Eraser

    I have tried using YUMI 2.0.6.9 and XBoot 1.0.14. However, when I create a complete USB with all the aforementioned applications, the USB is not seen as a bootable device under UEFI.

    I can successfully build a bootable USB for either Acronis Boot Media 2017 or Samsung SSD Eraser on their own (not together), but this obviously does not solve the problem of needing all 4 applications. Also, the USB is bootable if I switch from UEFI to legacy BIOS, but again, this does not solve the problem, because I installed Windows 10 under UEFI so want to have access to the same environment.

    There must be a solution to this as I am sure many people have succeeded in doing this, but I just cannot figure it out and see what I am doing wrong.

    I would really appreciate any help on this, and if someone who has succeeded in doing this, can give me a step-by-step guide that would be great; although I have already read many tutorials on this without success.

    I am running Windows 10 Pro x64 10.0.19008.1000 (Yes, I am enrolled on the Windows Insider Programme)

    :)

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!

  3. Install Windows 10 using UEFI bootable USB thumb drive

    You need to go into you system bios and select allow uefi usb drive. Then add the UEFI usb drive to the boot menu

    better way to partition aand create an bootable usb.

    For the UEFI system, we can use these steps to create the bootable USB:

    1.Locate a 4GB or larger USB flash drive

    2.Open Diskpart and run the following command cmd admin type diskpart

    • Type DiskPart in the command prompt.
    • Type "List Disk” (make note of the disk number of the target USB drive).
    • Type "Select Disk X”, where X is the target USB drive noted in step 4.
    • Type "Clean”.
    • Type "Create Partition Primary”.
    • Type "format FS=fat32 quick”.
    • Type "Active”.
    • Type "Assign".
    • Type "Exit".

    Copy your ISO files to the drive and reboot

    never use UEFI it better to repartition and remove UEFI go with legacy bois

    Multi-boot 3 OS Grub recovery/configuration

    If you are not afraid of using command line I would suggest using it, also the steps for graphical "Boot-Repair" are given:

    When booting Ubuntu USB or CD/DVD select UEFI boot, like "USB UEFI" for example.
