Multiboot USB Help - Need Win7/10, Hirens, Bob Omb, Sterlec

Recommended Posts

nsan3

Hi,

 

As the title says, I want to create a Multiboot USB with below ISOs:-

1) Windows 7

2) Windows 10

3) Hirens BootCD

4) Bob Omb WinPE

5) Sergei Sterlec WinPE.

 

I want it to be usable on both Old PCs (with Legacy BIOS), and New PCs (with UEFI).

 

I have tried numerous methods but nothing that seems to work well, as in boot all the requested ISOs without error.

 

Hope you guys can help me on the same.

 

Thanks in advance.

It could be troublesome to use the USB for Legacy and UEFI mode.

I had to format and install them in the specific mode with rufus depending on the conditions i have, since some systems wont support booting in UEFI (In my case that was with Deepin OS Installation, Which now made my BIOS go away and i cant access bios any more.)

You could use two USB's to solve this issue since legacy needs MBR partition type and UEFI needs GPT,


It could be possible to create two partition tables on the Same USB where one follows MBR and other GPT,

(If this works you can have a working multiboot usb for both old and new systems.)

 

You can try it with YUMI and a partition manager software to create the separate partitions on the USB to get it running. Else the best way would be to use2 separate drives as stated above since some UEFI installation in old legacy systems can shut you off the bios for ever.

Most probably it is not possible because sergei have a different structure and and even if you can boot it, then its program wont open with multiboot in yumi.even if you can make it then, then you cant boot in both uefi and bios and if you format the usb in fat32 to work in both then you lose the capability to store bigger files.

as an alternative,  i use a different method to achieve the same results as you want.

# One usb for all of your needs.

Make 3 partition in your usb in following order.


first partition for your general data and format it as ntfs.
second partition for linux if you ever decide to use, allocate size 2 GB and format it as fat32.
third partition for serge strelec winpe and format it as fat32.

now set 3rd partition as active, so it will boot from it, and if you ever boot from linux partition then set second partition as active)

(to make sergei bootable, directly extract it to the 3rd partition)
(to make linux bootable use yumi's options below from the list and carefully does it so it wont delete other partition)
(format the partition with device manager, dont use minitool wizard because it cant boot with minitool formatted usb's.)

now save your all windows iso in first partition.

boot from sergei strelec and use windows installer tools inside to install windows, locate your iso in the tool, and it will be same as you are doing a install from usb directly.
(sergei strelec have everything, you don't need other winpe's i guess.)

this setup will work with all of your windows install, both in uefi and bios, no size limits, )

limitations - 
you have to create multi partition carefully in older windows than windows 10 rs2.
you can see only first partition in explorer in older windows but thats not a problem because you dont need to see them anyway, you only need to use them in bootable mode where they work in every situation.


Done.

1.use  winsetupfromusb/Yumi ----these are simply the best.

2.use 2 diff usb sticks for bios/uefi if one is not catering to all needs.

Use Winsetup from USB, it's ll I did, all running from am M2 256GB SSD (seen as a harddisk also, rather than a USB)

This is still WIP, but works as it stands with no issues.

Use this, like a sane person would (i do, for all the stuff you mention, and more)

 

easy2boot.com

 

Why do people want to make it harder than it needs to be? Because every other method mentioned is...

 

It is literally the easiest, and most sane way, to do it

 

Read all the info, theres a lot, particularly on payloads (tested ISO's), once you understand it, its very easy

I also use E2B. Create a USB with the installer script 'MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE (run as admin).cmd' (or use the GUI), put ISOs in the folders, run 'MAKE_THIS_DRIVE_CONTIGUOUS.cmd' . Done.

Hi,

 

As the title says, I want to create a Multiboot USB with below ISOs:-

1) Windows 7

2) Windows 10

3) Hirens BootCD

4) Bob Omb WinPE

5) Sergei Sterlec WinPE.

 

I want it to be usable on both Old PCs (with Legacy BIOS), and New PCs (with UEFI).

 

I have tried numerous methods but nothing that seems to work well, as in boot all the requested ISOs without error.

 

Hope you guys can help me on the same.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

+1 for easy2boot!

Just have a look at the tutorial regarding how to make/prepare your USB key, add the ISOs (play with the mnu files if you want) and make them contiguous (at least if the USB key is not too full, or ISOs not too big). You might have to change some extensions, but easy2boot can deal with not-optimum ones.

As for the PE, Strelec's one would be enough.

This is still WIP, but works as it stands with no issues.

 

I've tried WinsetupfromUSB before and it can not properly create sergei strelec winpe, (it boots fine but programs don't work inside it because of its structure)

 

and even if somehow with editing you manage to properly create it then you have to use fat32 to boot from uefi and thus loosing usb's ability to hold big size files.

Use this, like a sane person would (i do, for all the stuff you mention, and more)

 

easy2boot.com

 

Why do people want to make it harder than it needs to be? Because every other method mentioned is...

 

It is literally the easiest, and most sane way, to do it

 

Read all the info, theres a lot, particularly on payloads (tested ISO's), once you understand it, its very easy

e2b is a painful software for first timers and its a mess. author could have organized the site and software  to understand more efficiently but they didn't do it. although after some reading you can get the hang of it.

anyway, its a good software but,

its only good if you are planning to use it on a dedicated usb only for multiboot, why

because when a image is booted from .imgptn extension in that case after booting it only shows your img.ptn data and disappears your other data, and you can't access your other data in usb if you need it in sergei strelec, and if you restore the structure to before in that case for segei strelec loses its program functionality.

 

 

 

so what is the solution if anyone want multiboot, ability to boot from uefi and legacy,  no size limits of fat32, and also the ability to use your other data in your usb in the most clean way?

Dont know what your beef is with easy2boot, how is it "painful" to setup and use, show me somethign easier with its power...as for your other "issue" with it..i switch between imgptn and normal iso booting all the time, no issues here...any data you need in both you carry on a separate key...simples. I can carry all i need on a job on 2 usb keys...i for the tools and one for data

 

Like i said a million time so here, why make it harder than it needs to be...

@ShiningDog So I booted on Partition 1 (Strelec's WinPE) and am on the WinPE desktop. How can I access Partition 2 (Where my Windows ISOs are saved) of the same USB and how to install Win10 from it?

Hi,

 

As the title says, I want to create a Multiboot USB with below ISOs:-

1) Windows 7

2) Windows 10

3) Hirens BootCD

4) Bob Omb WinPE

5) Sergei Sterlec WinPE.

 

I want it to be usable on both Old PCs (with Legacy BIOS), and New PCs (with UEFI).

 

I have tried numerous methods but nothing that seems to work well, as in boot all the requested ISOs without error.

 

Hope you guys can help me on the same.

 

Thanks in advance.

My solution for years has been grub4dos but it requires fat32 usb and of course windows.10.pro.x64.iso is over 4gb and can't live in fat32 usb so it won't work.  I agree with the person who said e2b is tedious and doesn't work well, I could never get it to do anything useful.  I haven't had much luck on modern systems with yumi or any syslinux based boot software either.

 

Pretty sure grub2 can do it but I don't know the syntax well enough.

@ShiningDog So I booted on Partition 1 (Strelec's WinPE) and am on the WinPE desktop. How can I access Partition 2 (Where my Windows ISOs are saved) of the same USB and how to install Win10 from it?

as i said before, set 2 (or 3) partitions on your usb, set first partition as general data (ntfs) and second as sergei strelec  (fat32) (set 2nd as active)

 

In sergei you would find two programs to install windows, winntsetup and 78SETUP (setup w7-w10) i suggest to use 2nd one if you are not sure about manually setting system partition.

 

although @coua suggested aioboot is a good software. just checked out, very easy to use and no need to convert images to .imgptn to work in some conditions as in easy2 boot. everything can be done with one exe file. and unlike easy2boot , other data on usb can be used while running sergei.

but it recommends to format whole drive as fat32 but it can also be set as ntfs + fat32 to boot from uefi but it doesn't give full guarantee to work in that way. that something you may wanna consider.

 

also, if you have to troubleshoot many types of systems, in that case you may wanna consider something different.

i've encountered some old pc's (around 2005) where you can not boot from usb if it is bigger than 4 gb.( yes its weird but its true, done too many tests)

if you think you can encounter such systems then i suggest to buy a cheap 4 gb 2.0 usb drive. and put sergei in it. and use another usb drive to store windows iso and use sergei to install windows with those iso's.
