    I used Rufus to create a dual boot windows 10 install flash drive. I used the secret alt+E shortcut. Anyone know what happened?
    Rufus is a waste of time.

    Create a Bootable USB Flash Drive

    Make sure to use FAT32 instead of NTFS:

    To create a bootable USB flash drive

    Insert a USB flash drive into a running computer.

    Open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.

    Type diskpart.

    In the new command line window that opens, to determine the USB flash drive number or drive letter, at the command prompt, type list disk, and then click ENTER. The list disk command displays all the disks on the computer. Note the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive.

    At the command prompt, type select disk <X>, where X is the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive, and then click ENTER.

    Type clean, and the click ENTER. This command deletes all data from the USB flash drive.

    To create a new primary partition on the USB flash drive, type create part pri, and then click ENTER.

    To select the partition that you just created, type select part 1, and then click ENTER.

    If your server platform supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), you should format the USB flash drive as FAT32 rather than as NTFS. To format the partition as FAT32, type format fs=fat32 quick, and then click ENTER.

    Type active, and then click ENTER.

    Type exit, and then click ENTER.

    When you finish preparing your custom image, save it to the root of the USB flash drive.

    Then just mount the Windows installation ISO file and copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive and you're done.

    Ah shoot! This might be a bug I introduced with version 2.11.

    Please try with version 2.10 and see if that works better. If I can confirm the bug, I'll get it fixed in 2.12.

    You should however be able to get a dual UEFI/NTFS drive even if you select NTFS (and to those who may wonder about this, YES, it is perfectly possible to boot an NTFS volume from UEFI - you just need an UEFI NTFS driver, which Rufus can automatically install for you. That can be convenient if, for instance, you have a >4GB file on your ISO). Have you tried with NTFS?

    Will this create a dual boot (UEFI and Legacy BIOS both)?

    cannot find ISO


    Brink,

    I was able to create and ISO for IP15060 following the tutorial by Kari that you suggested and everything went exactly is indicated except that when trying to create the bootable USB using Rufus I cannot find the ISO I just created.

    I have Show Hidden files enabled and I navigate to the UUP to ISO folder but there is no ISO. I have looked in every folder I could imagine it may have gone to and no luck.

    I have not run a search of the computer yet...perhaps I should have already done that?

    What do I do if it is in fact not on my computer (it is not in the Recycle Bin...I checked)? Start over?

    Thanks,

    Danny R

    Hello Danny, :)

    If you mean the tutorial below, then the ISO file should be in folder where you installed UUPtoISO. If not, then it would be best to post in that tutorial for more help with it.

    UUP to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 Build Upgrade Files

    If the ISO is truly gone, then you won't be able to start over using the tutorial above since it can only be done before restarting the computer for the Windows Update.

    You can download a Windows 10 Insider build ISO file below though.
