    Ok I got my hands on a copy of their boot disk utility. After installing the demo, it comes with 2 bootable images.

    One is WinPE based, the other is DOS.
    The DOS one it worthless for UEFI booting. The WinPE one is the one that should work.


    It's located by default at: "C:\Program Files (x86)\LSoft Technologies\Active@ Boot Disk\BootDisk.ISO"

    I looked at the images filesystem, and it should support UEFI booting.

    Unfortunately by looking at the structure of their boot image, they clearly have no clue how a windows boot disk should be laid out.


    Overall this boot disk is pretty shitty.
    But if you must..

    To UEFI boot this thing:

    Obtain your copy of the BootDisk.ISO file.
    Format a USB as FAT32, you can do this from "My PC" or "My Computer" depending on your Windows version.
    Once formatted, either mount the BootDisk.ISO file or open it win 7zip.
    Copy all files inside BootDisk.ISO onto the flash drive.

    That's it. Now it can be used to UEFI boot.

    They also use a bunch of free and/or open source software in their WinPE image. I'm surprised anyone would pay money for otherwise free software.

    Like I said in my earlier post this can be done with numerous programs, MS often used to release iso's that needed to be converted. Any mounting software will convert it for you, last time I needed to do this was about 5 years ago and I used daemon tools I believe.

    This USB flash drive can be booted in both UEFI and Legacy BIOS boot mode. This USB flash drive is also compatible with Secure Boot.

    If you are booting from a USB flash drive (FAT32 file system) in UEFI Boot Mode, then UEFI firmware run \efi\boot\bootx64.efi file.

    Hey Guys

    Thank you for the replies. @Hydranix you were correct in stating it was not an Os I was trying to install; their web site does state uefi supported. @genet thank you also for the detailed guide, which I was following anyway.

    It seems their support dept gave me incorrect info, v9 was the problem ( no uefi support), v 10.03 works flawlessly.

    I appreciate your assistance
