    Hi,
    I am the author of Easy2Boot. Over 1000 Easy2Boot USB drives are made every day.
    If you have a specific problem, please give details.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.
    The problem i had with Easy2Boot was that i couldnt make a valid Windows 7 installation from a custom wim file (5.5GB).
    I have tried to install said win7 on old machine with no UEFI support with imgptn file, (i would like to have one USB\HDD so no USB helper).
    After the installation, which takes ~10 min on old HDD, PC crushes on win logo on startup.
    As i see it, if you want 1 USB\HDD you have to make imgptn files, and thats for UEFI only. Im in a workplace where most PC are with no UEFI suport. Am i worng?
    Thank you.

    Hi
    If you convert to .imgPTN then you can MBR boot (and UEFI-boot if you have EFI boot files in the image).
    If Win7 installs OK but then fails on first boot from HDD, it sounds like something is wrong with your system.
    If you tried other utilities and get similar results, then that also suggests a problem with your system.

    What is BSOD error number? Have you tested disk and RAM?

    Hi,
    HDD and the overall system is in good condition , i installed from a USB to check and all went well.
    There was something wrong with the installation cause it went way too fast IMO.
    I think i have tried every single way to have that win 7, win 10, linux and other utilities combo with no go.
    With Easy2Boot there was just that win7 problem but other than that all went well.
    I will try in a UEFI machine to see if that works there at least.
    Does win 7 imgPTN works for you in none UEFI machine?
    Thank you

    Hi,
    I have tried MBR boot and alternative boot with no luck.

    Win 7 MS ISO does not normally contain UEFI boot files for USb booting. See http://www.easy2boot.com/add-payload-files/win7-uefi/
    Is suspect your system is incompatible with the Win7 version you have (maybe disk controller issue - but as you don't tell us what the BSOD error number is, it is hard to guess). Did you try a standard MS Win7 ISO?

    So Rufus installs OK on the same system and from the same USB drive, but E2B does not - is that correct? You did not mention that before!
    BSOD is Blue Screen of Death - when Windows crashes you get a blue screen and an error number like 0xc000007b.

    P.S. Did you set the Boot Order in the BIOS to boot USB first, or did you set internal HDD boot first and then use pop-up boot selection menu (hit F key) to boot to USB drive? Hint: The second option is the correct one!
