Right Click - Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment - run as administrator

Run these commands to create the media directory
copype amd64 C:\WinPE_amd64
copype x86 C:\WinPE_x86

To make a bootable USB Stick (X being the usb drive letter)
MakeWinPEMedia /UFD C:\WinPE_x86 X:
MakeWinPEMedia /UFD C:\WinPE_amd64 X:

To make an ISO File
MakeWinPEMedia /ISO C:\WinPE_x86 C:\WinPE_x86\WinPEx86.iso

Excuse me again, but you can send me the etfsboot.com and efisys.bin files and write the commands that you used to create the Windows PE ISO and to create its bootable USB stick?

Thanks

I also noticed that the bootmgr.efi file of the root directory of the cd 32 bit is different than what is in the cd 64 bit. So, when I combine the two CD, what should I do with these two files?

Thanks

Or make two WinPE versions - they use 3 different files - one of them is the bootmgr.efi

- just as stated before

So, how can I do to solve my problem?

By chance, using only Microsoft utilities, there is a new procedure for the creation of an ISO of Windows PE 5.x 32/64 bit perfectly working on any type of computer?

Thank you and sorry again

It is possible to use linux utilities to boot iso files as partition images, even with efi and secure boot. It is quite complicated, and limits you to using iso files.

No simple ideal solution that I know of. Yet another efi anoyance.

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?

Thanks

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..
