    1 I don't know if I should make a new thread or continue it on my old thread at I have 2 question's about win 10 home - Windows 10 Forums ?

    I am trying to make a self booting USB drive of the prog "PCUlocker" on my Dell Inspiron15-3541 laptop OS Win 7 home 32bit. The purpose of this project is to put "PCUlocker" on a self booting USB drive so I can bypass the Win 10 local password (I forgot the Password) on an Asus X541NA laptop OS Win 10 Home 64bit The problem that I have is when I make the bootable USB drive with the prog "Power ISO" using the free version of "PCUlocker" the bootable USB drive works. But I can't unlock the Windows password with the free version of "PCUlocker". So on Jan-3rd when I got paid, I paid online for the paid version of the "PCUnlcker" and download it. And the paid version just don't work. I made the bootable USB drive with the paid version. And the paid version will not boot up in the Asus laptop. The boot order in the bios along with all the other setting in the bios are set right. I have no clue as to why the free version boots but the paid version won't boot.
    By the way I have sent a few days ago an email to the "PCUlocker" tech support about this and there hasn't been any replys yet. Also I tried many different freeware USB ISO burners, all with the same results. Ether I got a bad download or there is a bug in the prog. Anyone have any ideas that I didn't think of?

    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!

    Make a USB drive bootable.

    What are you trying to accomplish? You can use
    the free Rufus
    to make a bootable flash drive.
