    How to make a bootable flash drive that boots to a custom menu


    I have a Kingston Data Traveler 3.0 USB flash drive that I would like to make bootable. I would like to be able to insert it in a USB port on computers running Windows 10 and boot to a menu on the flash drive that I can customize. Can someone help me do this?

    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!

    How to make a bootable flash drive that boots to a custom menu

    UEFI Boot Menu

    Thanks for the responses and suggestions. I've not yet tried setting everything back to defaults, although re-flashing pretty much did that for me. I have accessed the boot menu without USB drives attached and had the same result. I guess the next step would be to disconnect each of the internally connected SATA drives one at a time to see if a specific drive is causing the issue. It'd be helpful to know if the placement of those kanji looking characters is some kind of indicator that it is either the drive above or the drive below it.

    I'm unsure of how that boot menu is populated. Does it read the boot sectors of all drives attached to the system and present only those it deems as bootable? Which could indicate at least one of the boot sectors is bad/corrupted. Does it just present all attached drives and leave it up to the user to decide which are bootable?
