    How small does it get when you convert (compress) it to install.esd? Use this from abbodi1406: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/54007-ESD-lt-gt-WIM-Conversion-batch?p=903619#post903619

    If the install.esd still is larger than 4GB you could split the install.wim into more install.swm (splitwim) files by using this command:

    Code:
    Dism /Split-Image /ImageFile:x:\install.wim /SWMFile:y:\install.swm /FileSize:3500
    
    3500 is the max size for each swm file.

    Now you can format your USB Thumbdrive FAT32 and simply extract the iso to it. Now you have an UEFI AND Legacy BIOS bootable USB drive.
