    My name is not "Dell support"
    I suggest that you just delete |Dell Support from the text of the link you've put in this option & in other options.

    Not all computers can boot from exFat. Some can only boot from Fat32. That's why the warning I suggested is required.

    Another case of typing not keeping up with thought. LOL

    I was reading posts about creating a uefi bootable drive if install.wim is over 4GB WITH only one partition.

    Majority of pcs only boot from fat32 which does not allow an install.wim over 4GB.

    There are ONLY two options if pc cannot boot from NTFS or exFAT.

    1) convert install.wim to install.esd (assuming install.esd is less than 4 GB).

    2) (as @NavyLCDR) says, split install.wim into .swm files.

    I do not understand while people are bothered about two partitions on a usb drive.

    If you are booting from drive, it is irrelevant what version is on pc.

    It is only an issue of accessing the usb drive from windows on an old version. Easily solved by just mounting iso as a drive anyway.

    Is there a script for either?

    The following might be clearer to non English-speaking members like me.

    What if Windows 10 ISO contains a WIM file too big for the FAT32 file system?

    Thank you Matthew. This has now been added as option 5 to the tutorial.
    Looks like it's (sort of) a re-invention of what Rufus already does.

    Easy enough for a user to find out whether their system boots as Legacy, or UEFI.

    Windows key + R

    Enter msinfo32

    Find "Bios Mode" in the System Summary.

    "Copying and pasting" 4 - 6gb of data seems inefficient, when you can burn the ISO directly.

    No. There is also the option to
    Create Edition-specific Fat32 InstallUSB - TenForums

    That's where Brink's link takes you to - If Windows 10 ISO contains WIM file that is too big for FAT32 file system
