    Hello... I'm curious what software works really good in creating a multi boot usb flash drive ? I'm trying to put these windows versions onto a single flash drive xp pro, 7 ultimate , 8.1 pro and 10 pro ... thanks

    7, 8.1 and 10 together are quite easy....

    here are some of my notes

    make bootable usb flash with dual x86+x64 windows 10 either from iso using rufus or using ms download utility directly. Then you can modify the file \boot\bcd using bcdedit utility

    Code:
    #print boot entries
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd
    
    #create new entry
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /copy {default} /d “Windows 10 x64 CZ”
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {0267c0bd-4c2a-11e6-9c21-0002c951a6a8} device ramdisk=[boot]\win10-x64-cz\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {0267c0bd-4c2a-11e6-9c21-0002c951a6a8} osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\win10-x64-cz\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {0267c0bd-4c2a-11e6-9c21-0002c951a6a8} locale cs-CZ
    
    #modify default
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {default} /d “Windows 10 x64 EN”
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {default} device ramdisk=[boot]\win10-x64-en\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit /store g:\boot\bcd /set {default} osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\win10-x64-en\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    
    
    the GUID after .wim should stay the same.

    and in the respective folders on usb flash just copy content of iso you want.

    Thanks again, guys . I now have a flash stick with the following Windows and I already tested each, everything is okay now. I did it with WinSetupFromUSB

    I used e2b but this one is much better. Super easy to use!
