    In "option 5", which I always use, when the UFD is formatted with FAT32, it is also "converted" to MBR. I suppose the same happens in Option 4, and therefore the "convert mbr" command is not needed [I havenīt tried].

    Option 4 Manually create Bootable Windows 10 USB for Legacy BIOS and UEFI in Command Prompt - you have converted the usb to mbr... but can the UEFI recognize an mbr usb ?? I read that gpt is for uefi and mbr for legacy bios

    Hello SanAndreas, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    MBR was used for a universal boot. It's recognized by both at boot.

    Is it necessary to use command prompt or can I just go to This pc-right click on USB-format?

    I used the following method to create a bootable USB device that supported both UEFI and Legacy.

    You would want to use the commands to create it since formatting alone would not make it bootable.

    I'm not sure what you mean from what I posted?

    The commands in option 4 doesn't just format the USB. It also makes the USB bootable.

    Right click - format only formats the USB, but it will not be bootable.
