    I want to put Windows 7 and Windows 8 on a same USB, the problem is that each ISO file size larger than 4 GB, and I want to use the FAT32. so I can work on the UEFI.
    Please if any one have a way to make this explain here step by step :)

    You need to read the site elaborately; various methods are already discussed. You can simply create two partitions, one with FAT32 (boot) & other one is NTFS (WIMs) or load NTFS driver via EFI shell.

    Read up on how split the .WIM files into .SWM files.
    By doing that I've got a UEFI (Fat32) USB thumb drive that installs Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Server2012R2
    Theres more than enough information on this forum to do what you want in a number of ways.

    The format worked and no file in Easy2Boot download is over 4GB, so it should work??

    That's not how fat32 works in this case.
    It's not the iso size that determines whether or not you can use it for fat32.
    It's the maximum file INSIDE the iso that has to be under 4gb.
    So, as long as the install.wim, install*.swm, or install.esd is under 4gb, it will work.

    First my extension of install file is ESD not WIM
    Second I see 2 script:,
    1: Basic script to pre-integrate baseline image with all the license information
    2: Split integration script
    I make each script in batch file "Name.bat" and run
