    If you are going to use Rufus because of the 4GB FAT32 filesize restriction, you could still use FAT32 after splitting the install.wim using DISM with the option Export-Image and the argument SWMFile.

    Did you read my question? The answer surely is unrelated...

    don't you have to assign a letter to partition 0 , then it can be seen?

    Officially your not meant to have multiple partitions on a standard USB key so diskpart doesn't work properly in this instance.
    You would need a 3rd party partition utility.
    WindowsToGo USB keys have a bit set so they are seen like a hdd so partitioning is allowed.

    Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000

    On Windows 10 x64 seen the USB once, but no partitions, so I think the OS is really NOT supported

    With Eassos PartitionGuru is possible view and save the entire content of the rufus partition on a folder on your pc, not possible mounting the partition.

    Starting with insider build 14965 it is possible to format a removable USB drive with more than one partition...
