    I spotted that now. I suggest this thread needs some reorganisation to put the essential installation information at the start.

    I have it working now - very useful. Defender also blocked a file from one of the licence code utilities whilst copying files from the mounted ISO file to the USB drive. I had to create a Defender exception for that virtual ISO drive.

    The icon fonts are tiny on my 1920x1080 15" laptop display. There is some improvement using a UI scaling of 150%. Is there a method of changing the icon font size?

    Hi @kracie17,

    I am fine! Thank you for asking. There are some ways to convert GPT to MBR, but I think for you, you should create back usbboot only with 10xpe.iso, checked back my instruction from earlier post cmt #2472. Before doing that, you should copy folder EFI to another partition, this one is usually hidden, you can use Bootice\ Parts manage to assign a letter for Efi part. Save this folder for later if you would want to come back with UEFI\ GPT.

    Once you boot into WinPE, open Minitool Partition Wizard, right-click on your Disk like this:

    Attachment 328225

    Click on that and following instructions.

    Doing that step above first before making change on BIOS.

    To make sure, I would like to see your pics from Minitool on WinPE. Be cautious, asking, showing pics before you proceed. Copy all important files and folders to external HDD or other usb, please do not blame me if something happens.
    Hi @Learning41421, thank you for your guidance. my apologies for replying back late. i have yet to try this out, i will give it a try sometime early next month. i will follow your guide closely and update here.
    once again, thank you so much for your help to guide. stay safe!

    Rather then change your PC setup - Just create a USB with Win10XPE (Standalone) and forget using Ventoy as your Bootloader...
    Copy the contents of the Win10XPE ISO to a Fat32 Formatted USB Stick - it will then boot into either UEFI or Legacy mode....
    Also Note: You CAN NOT Boot a (32Bit) x86 OS or PE in UEFI mode, unless you have an ATOM Processor...
    right, thanks @Kyhi! as much as i like to combine all my ISOs into one drive so i can just carry one drive and use it everywhere. it may not seem to work for me just yet. but i will give Learning41421 method a try first. else, that maybe the last resort.

    Hi All, just recently discovered Win10XPE and joining this boat (really late), was reading through the forum (especially #69) and catching up.

    I have been trying for past 2 nights, trying to get ghost32.exe and ghost64.exe (which I 7zip to .7z), and including them to (XPE Packed Plugin Creator), I put ghost32.7z on 32bit, ghost64.7z on 64 bit, typed ghost64.exe on Program.exe field.

    When clicking on (Create New XPE Plugin), it gives program.exe not found, but shortcut will be created.
    Went to (XPE Plugin Creator), enable (Desktop Shortcut) and launch to test. I can see ghost64.exe and able to run.

    However, when I made ISO file and put onto USB key (using Rufus on MBR method), I don't see the icon on Desktop when I boot from USB.
    I can however browse to USB drive, and launch programs\ghost32-x64\ghost64.exe and run it.

    What step(s) did I miss so it's NOT displaying on Desktop as shortcut icon?

    3 things I learnt (took me awhile, but guess because I'm newbie)
    1) Exclude folder WinXPE folder from 'Windows Defender' so GWT.exe not deleted, and able to 'Create ISO'
    2) Download Windows ISO directly from MS-Site (instead of through CreateMedia method), by disabling 'Inspect; More tools; network conditions; de-select 'User Agent')
    3) Similar to 1), disable USB drive from 'Windows Defender' so ProdKey.exe not flagged

    Hi mding

    since the XPE Packed Plugin Creator is processing the 32bit line first, it can't find ghost64.exe, I guess thats why it throws up the error.
    try creating it with ghost32.exe as the 'Program exe' then in the created scriptfile change %ProgramExex64% to ghost64.exe in the variables section
