    hi @Brink

    Is there any way to prevent Rufus making two different partitions like this

    Hello @SM03,

    This is normal when using Rufus to create a UEFI only USB.

    You can create a USB using step 6 option 2 for both UEFI and Legacy BIOS to avoid this.

    Hey @Brink & @Anibor

    So, basically, there is no way to have a single partition while making a bootable PD in GPT-UEFI via rufus? Right?

    Is there any alternate software like rufus that does the job i.e. making GPT-UEFU based bootable PD with a single partition?

    & yes, my custom-made ISO size is currently around 5.14 GB so for that neither I can go with FAT32 partition schematic, nor I can choose the MBR method in Rufus as shown in SS below

    As my HDD & SSD, both are formatted in GPT so if I do so, i.e. made the PD bootable at MBR-UEFI-CMS (LEGACY) mode, then the Windows won't install in those partition with re-formatting them again in MBR & I really don't wanna do that.

    No way to avoid more than one partition if using step 7 in option 2.

    The workaround to not seeing another drive letter (partition) is to use step 6 in option 2. It's good to use for both UEFI and Legacy BIOS. More universal.

    Option 2 STEP 6 is "To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive for Installing Windows 10 with Legacy BIOS or UEFI"

    & I already mentioned in my earlier post that why I can't use that option, quoting again

    "As my HDD & SSD, both are formatted in GPT so if I do so, i.e. made the PD bootable at MBR-UEFI-CMS (LEGACY) mode, then the Windows won't install in those partition with re-formatting them again in MBR & I really don't wanna do that."

    Also, what about this What I asked earlier?

    "Is there any alternate software like rufus that does the job i.e. making GPT-UEFU based bootable PD with a single partition?"
