    You could also just point Macrium's Media Builder to the New Partition
    Select the Advanced Tab
    True but by having everything on root of Q will also allow to boot from Boot Menu using Function Key.
    Personally, I don't set up dual boot, just use function key to access boot menu.

    Point well taken,,, And with that point in mind - the partition MUST be Fat32 Format

    Not true. Here's my GPT disk layout for Win10 Install, WinPESE, Macrium and Disk Genius. All formatted with NTFS
    As stated above, If the UEFI firmware is 2.0 or later then it's fine with NTFS.

    That is the point of it. It is a UI that can be used instead of bcdedit commands. It can be used for lots of entries - not just boot from wim. Some people might be interested.

    bcdedit commands have been used for many years - I used to set up the equivalent of winre recov environment in vista, for example.

    UI is handy for many people

    Anyway, what bootice does is the same as what @Kyhi posted above

    If you using EFI Partition (Windows Boot Manager) then NTFS partition supported - Because EFI (Bootable) partition is Fat32
    If Booting the Partition Directly in UEFI mode then Partition Must be Fat32
    As you can not boot UEFI Mode from NTFS Partition

    I tried BootIce following SIW2 directions, When I clicked save it said it saved or updated (I don't remember words, sorry) but they inferred it worked and all was well.

    I rebooted but nothing happened. Just booted into my normal Win 10.

    Started BootIce to look at it again and now I can't do anything, this is the window I get and Easy Mode is greyed out.

    Also tried Macrium, it didn't see Q: either, so I converted one of the drives to MBR, deleted the old Q: partition and created a new one on the MBR drive. Macrium still does not see the Q: partition.

    The modes are greyed out because you haven't selected a bcd store.There is a browse button ... to do that.

    This version might be better for what you are trying to do:
    bootice-1.3.4-x86_x64.zip


    To browse to another bcd store

    To load the current bcd store, put the dot here
    Add Macrium reflect to W10 boot menu - all disks GPT-browse2.jpg



    Macrium still does not see the Q: partition.
    Can you elaborate on that. What are trying to get macrium to do?

    BCD of current system is also greyed out so can't be selected.
    Where is the BCD? I thought it was in \boot but I don't see it there and I have Hide protected files and folders unchecked.
    Or is in in the EFI partition? If it is, how do I browse to it since the EFI Partition does not have a drive letter assigned?

    I'll try the other BootIce.

    I was trying to do what Kyhi described.

    Are you running bootice v1.3.4 as admin?

    If you want to access the esp for any reason, asign a drive letter. You might find a 3rd party partition manager useful.
