Wimb,

is it possible to edit the first menu (after booting the USB stick), because I made a mistake - wrong wim description.

I did'nt find a config file.

You can use portable App BOOTICEx86.exe given in PStart\Progs\BOOTICE

It allows to edit the BCD files selected from folder Boot for BIOS and folder efi\microsoft\boot for UEFI booting.

 

In Professional mode you can with right click Edit the Description that will be presented in Boot Manager Menu.

 

:cheers:

Hello 'HALIKUS............

First tons of thanks for 'Stripped down version of Modified Easy2Boot'...........

 

I am unable to use 'Win8.1SE' because my all ISO's are currently of AIO ESD types. I highly need standalone 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' file. I want to use 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' with 'UED FORMAT.exe' and 'UEFI MULTI.exe' in order to make both 'Boot Manager' and 'Grub4dos' Menu on my Dual Partition Removable USB Drive to boot UEFI + BIOS directly from USB with Boot Manager Menu. i.e.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boot UEFI + BIOS with 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' direct from Boot Manager Menu into RAMDISK
Boot UEFI - F12 - BIOS - Grub4dos - Easy2Boot + Win XP/7/8 VHD - Ramdisk 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

If you don't mind then please share a Resumable Download link of standalone 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim'file with me. So that I can use both 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' and 'Easy2Boot' together in my USB Drive.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think now 'ChrisR' should add support of 'install.esd' in next version of 'Win8.1SE'. What you think ?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Questions-

 

1- I have two Partition in my USB Drive named 'E2B Partition' and 'Data Partition' with following configuration-

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partition 1 -  FAT32/NTFS - E2B Partition   -  Easy2Boot +  Required Boot Manager files with 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' 
Partition 2 -  FAT32/NTFS - Data Partition  -  Storage Purpose
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will above configuration create both 'Boot Manager' and 'Grub4dos' Menu on my Dual Partition Removable USB Drive to boot UEFI + BIOS directly from USB with Boot Manager Menu ?

 

2- Will above configuration also Boot UEFI + BIOS with 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' direct from Boot Manager Menu into RAMDISK, when 'E2B Partition' be Hidden (Invisible to Windows). 
i.e.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Partition 1 -  FAT32/NTFS - Data Partition  -  Storage Purpose
Partition 2 -  FAT32/NTFS - E2B Partition   -  Easy2Boot +  Required Boot Manager files with 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
3- Will 'Win8.1UpdateSE_x86.iso' also boot in UEFI mode ?
 
 
 
Goal-
 
Actually I want to create a Dual Partition USB Drive so that It's 'E2B Partition' will be Hidden and 'Data Partition' will be visible in Windows. 'Easy2Boot files' must be within hidden 'E2B Partition', while 'Required Boot Manager files' and 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' can be within either 'E2B Partition' or 'Data Partition' so that USB Drive will show both 'Boot Manager' and 'Grub4dos' menu option during USB Booting . 
 
'Boot Manager' menu entry should boot to 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' in both UEFI and BIOS mode while 'Grub4dos' menu entry should boot to 'Easy2Boot' in BIOS mode only. 
i.e.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boot UEFI + BIOS with 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' direct from Boot Manager Menu into RAMDISK
Boot UEFI - F12 - BIOS - Grub4dos - Easy2Boot + Win XP/7/8 VHD - Ramdisk 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
So Please tell me about a step by step procedure by which I can complete my goal...................................
 

Thanks in Advance
