  1. Will Multi OS USB with MBR partition work?

    I have created a usb with 3 OS namely Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10 altogether with MBR partitioning scheme thru my PC which is also running under MBR. I want to know whether this same USB can be used in my laptop Lenovo G50 -70 to install the OSes.
    My laptop is having GPT partitioning scheme with UEFI. If I disable secure boot, I think this USB will boot but will the installation go interrupted from a USB with MBR to a system having GPT partitioning scheme?
    Please clear my doubts.

    New computer, cant boot to install Windows

    If the M/B in question is not UEFI-compliant, then USB boot disk created by Rufus will not boot. Rufus creates USB boot disk only to install OS on systems with UEFI motherboards. GPT or MBR partitioning does not matter. But M/B must be UEFI type.

    I had this experience once.
