    From what I understand, it would be enough to create the efisys.bin and bootmgr.efi files that work indifferently with the the UEFI 32/64 bit. Right? If so, as I do this possibly using Microsoft utilities?

    No, bootmgr.efi is different for x86 and x64..

    so unless you know how to setup and use 3 different boot managers - it is not possible - and even Microsoft has not figured out how to do what your are trying to do..

    So once again what you are wanting to do is not possible..
