    i want to be able to install windows 7 from my usb while having an option to install windows 10 without formating my drive. basically i want a usb tool to allow me to have both installation inside a single usb drive.

    I know with windows 7 you can have multi editions and even 32/64 but with Windows 10 I was asking a few days ago about u select between home, pro, enterprise, etc during install and nobody really gave me a good answer. I think you can do it because of the ei.cfg got removed? Not sure. I hope its possible to make multi editions still. As far as 7 and 10 in same install, well Ive seen people make 7 and 8 in same install so I am sure its out there. I can't remember the tool name. Personally I like to keep them separate because I randomly go back and integrate more windows updates.

    If you download ISO files from the Create Media Tool from MS, you will only have the version you select..
    But if you download from TechBench, you will have both Pro and Core in the same image :)
    You can also download in ANY language you want!
    They also have KN, N and Single Language ISO's.

    I'm not able to post links.. So just remove the spaces: www . microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench

    problem with easy2boot is that it put .iso file on usb witch then lead to failed to load driver. im looking for similar solution only wit extracted .iso in separate folder not in root. Yumi can make boot menu but it exracts files on root of usb and win7 and win10 has to many similar filenames so it wont work unless you put extracted .iso's in separate folders

    I have posted many times about this..I also wanted an .iso that could have Home/Pro 32/64 Bit but most modern computers use the new and better UEFI GPT Disk format. In order to install from a USB thumb drive it has to be formatted in Fat 32,which has a 4GB limit size of the Install.wim. These .iso's are much larger than that thus you can't do a UEFI GPT install.
