    Can you please specify the order in step 11

    Is this correct:Win 7>Efi>boot>bootx64.efi

    Thanks

    Hello Kroeger,

    Step 11 in Option Two is not just one path. You will need to follow each step in step 11 to copy the file to the path it belongs.

    I asked because I already seem to have that file in the path I listed in my previous post. Win 7>Efi>boot>bootx64.efi

    I just need to verify if this is where the bootx64file needs to be in the very end of step 11(A-E)

    Thanks

    (USB drive letter)\Efi\boot\bootx64.efi would be the correct path at the end.

    Shawn, very nice tutorial, thank you. Just noticed a little typo in Option One step 7 "USFI" instead of "UEFI". When using Rufus I was noticed that I would need a WMI extraction program, I thought it would be worth a note but since Rufus asks you to download it when it needs to, it's not really necessary. Stay cool. Cheers,

    Joe

    Thank you Joe. Typo has been corrected. I'm going to have to clean my glasses more often. LOL

    Hi,
    I used the rufus software to create a gpt uefi bootable usb drive, but i get an error saying that it cannot copy install.wim as it is larger than 4gb. i tried to create a ntfs drive but it cannot boot in uefi.
    Is there any way to copy install.wim in fat32

    Thanks.
