    Hello Guys :)
    It's been so long since I was trying to make an ISO image for installing all kinds of windows and boot to recovery media like active boot disk and dart. at first I though that It will never support UEFI booting, but surprisingly I found a way called " Universal Dual Boot BIOS/UEFI for Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 AIOs " here goo.gl/VDFWRL and here goo.gl/R5Yyj2
    ,
    but the thing I'm missing is that tutorials say that I have to make a floppy image or something like this
    which I don't have a clue about, Can any one sum up the method or lead me to a good tutorial, or help me achieve my goal?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Guys,
    I want to tell that I have figured it out, I have made what I wanted and yet better, I made whats shown in these pics:

    And the surprise was that the final ISO made with the full-sized WIM file: about 16GB and booted into UEFI no problem.

    Finally, I want to thank anybody who helped and tried to help :)

    The only thing i want to know is how you created the USB drive containing a 16GB install.wim and still be uefi bootable without using a 3rd party tool like rufus?

    You'd have to use some sort of usb hack that allows you to have multiple partitions since uefi only boots from fat32 format which has 4095mb filesize limit

    Some motherboard manufacturers already include ntfs driver support in their UEFI.
    ie, Modern MSI notebooks can boot USB key formatted as NTFS. No tricks...

    (OP)


    Actually, it's not an invented method of mine, but it all depends on using a feature that comes with some kinds of Flash Drives, which is called " USB CD-Rom", by which you can partition the USB drive into multiple partitions, one of them works as CD Driver. And where my final result was an ISO file, It could be burned into that CD-Rom partition, and be plunged into any PC in the world and fire up in Legacy or UEFI.

    This might be true, but I'm too far from having these motherboards, so I had to figure out a quicker way. which works like a charm for me ;) .

    Could you share your method in detail please (step by step)?
    In fact I was the OP from one of those threads at "the oven" but couldn't make it work.
