This video demonstrates how to make a USB Flash Drive or USB Hard Disk to store multiple ISOs and images.
You can boot from the USB drive in normal BIOS MBR mode and then use Clover to boot from the 32 and 64-bit EFI files in UEFI mode without needing to reboot the system.
You can have multiple images and ISO files on your USB drive (e.g. multiple HP Utilities, Windows Installers, Linux Live ISOs, KonBoot, etc,).
When you make the E2B USB drive, you can choose FAT32 or NTFS – either will work with .imgPTN files and UEFI booting.

When you make the .imgPTN files from your payload files, choose FAT32 if you want UEFI-booting to work.

Tip: If you boot from the USB drive using the QEMU emulator in RMPrepUSB, you can switch to one of the images before you connect the USB drive to a UEFI system (this saves having to configure the target system for CSM boot first).

  1. Hello there sir steve. When I booted in my imgPTN file and load clover bootloader it is stuck in loading screen

    Welcome to Clover 445

    scan entries

    It is stuck in that screen logo?? How can I fix it??

  2. Thanks for the video Steve, however, its not clear. For a beginner like me its difficult to follow. You should have given step by step instructions. I want to make E2B drive so that I can use it for installing normal windows installation and uefi windows installation. I want to include CloneZilla and TestDisk and some version of Linux also. Any video on that ?? I also want to include Windows 7, 8.1 and 10. Waiting for your reply. Thanks

  3. Ok.
    So let me see if i got it.
    You first need to boot from a legacy bios to choose the program you want to use in an UEFI computer.
    It means if youre with only one PC that is UEFI only, you cant choose what to boot from there.
    Is that it?

    And does it bypass secure boot so i can install windows?

  4. hi steve
    i need your help again
    i can run Easy.Recovery.Essentials.Pro.for.Windows 7
    but when i'm runing Easy.Recovery.Essentials.Pro.for.Windows 10
    i have got errors like mount_msdos: /dev/ada0s2 :invalid argument
    and so on Easy.Recovery.Essentials.Pro.for.Windows 7 work great
    every program to add is a riddle

  5. hi steve

    i need your help please
    i am into csm try to play hirens 15.2 and got the error
    remove disk or other media
    do you know this error

  6. Hi Steve, Thanks for the helpful video. One problem I ran into is after turning off UEFI and Secureboot on a Toshiba Qosimo I can no longer get into the Bios setup and it won't boot from anything but DVD. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  7. when split install.esd to install.swm doesnt work for my win 10
    make sure all file required for installation are available

  8. Do you have any instructions on how to create a totally UEFI only USB boot drive? I mean one with no MBR Boot. One where even the main menu is running in UEFI, not MBR. One where you would not be going back and forth from MBR to UEFI, or UEFI to MBR, just simply UEFI. If you have such instructions, please provide URL to them. Thank you.

  9. hi , I have a usb key on boot up problem in UEFI it does not work yet I 'm a gpt partition, normally it works but I have a message "warning the E2B drive partition table is about to overwritten ! etc. …. how can I do to UEFI boot in . Thank mode.

  10. sounds complicated for something named easy. how about jsut hiren's boot cd to usb easily ? just extract the iso from downloaded zip file , start program, select uefi boot load the iso then make the bootable usb. now that's easy2boot.

  11. net session command should work on any standard Windows system. Maybe you have a bad path environment variable?
    In MPI 0.067 I will change admin detection routine to be same as in MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE.cmd.

  12. My brain started to hurt following the text instructions. I got stuck trying to drag&drop to create my imgptn file. Its asking me to run as administrator even though I enabled it in the shortcut. Then I even typed the command myself in an admin prompt, still same error. But I am going to watch this video instead and hope it helps me. I am actually very happy there is a real persons voice and not some crappy notepad text…..

  13. I have installed windows 10 using clover. And now it won't boot without clover! When I try to boot from my ssd it says that there's no os on it!

  14. I made multiple boot usb . including windows 10 . and I booted to windows 10 setup then turnoff the laptop …Now the usb only boots to windows 10. how can I fix this without starting over
    edit : also the usb shows only 4G of size and its 16G . I believe the windows 10 was mounted and not unmounted correctly ?

  15. hi sir i finally i can creat and boot the ez2boot usb disk with my old lenovo notebook,but when i put to another computer ,it cannot detected my is normal ?howcan i fix it? my another pc is sonicmaster asus notebook

  16. hi sir when i make the partition for my iso image,there is a error,source install.wim, there is not enough disk space on the to fixed?

  17. it is so annoying when people put up videos that are supposed to show you how to do something and then leave bits out. Just skip bits and leave us guessing. ggrrrr

  18. Hi! I just made ImagePTN, so what do I do with it? Do I copy it over to the USB drive? When should I use ImagePTN or ISO? Also, when I load Virtual Box, I get "FATAL: Could not read from boot medium! System halted." My computer is UEFI. I hope you can help me. Thanks. And sorry for the bad english.
