    Copy Contents of ISO to Fat32 Formatted USB
    The System Needs about 5GB Ram to load Rescue Media

    Ah, I see now, it was NTFS. Damn Rufus.

    Also "MBR partition scheme for UEFI"

    @Kyhi,

    Help, please! Most of my computer have an SSD and a HDD drive. At the end of the HDD I put an 8 GB FAT32 partition to hold a Windows 10 installation drive with the boot.wim file replaced with your recovery tools boot.wim file. So far all of my computers have picked up the bootable FAT32 partition and have added the option to boot to it automatically to the UEFI boot menu (F12).

    I just got a new laptop and have not added the second hard drive to it. I put the 8 GB FAT32 partition at the end of the single SSD, but it is not getting added to the UEFI boot menu. I have the option of manually adding a UEFI boot menu option by entering the filename I want to boot from, so my question is, which .efi file do I select from the recovery partition? The choices are below:

    The EFI boot file is this one:
    \efi\Microsoft\boot\efisys.bin
