    Is it odd that after I load up my Windows 7 ISO and check the box "Create a bootable disk using" that I don't have the option to select dots for neither Standard Windows Installation or Window's to Go?

    These options don't appear at all -> Name:  Untitled-1.jpg

    Not at all. As explained in the FAQ, as well as the release notes for version 2.0, Windows To Go is only available if you run Rufus on Windows 8 or later. If you run Windows 7, you won't see the To Go creation option.

    If you want to know more, see here.

    Maybe that will change in the future, but I don't promise anything.

    With the new version of Rufus, it is possible to create a bootable USB stick multiboot with some customized editions of Windows 8.x whose iso are greater than 4096MB? If so, how do I do this?

    This USB stick must be able to boot on the computer with the BIOS or UEFI.

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello Balubeto,

    Sorry, but you'll need to create a separate USB for each.

    By chance, does anyone know a program that can do what I want?

    Thanks

    Actually, the FAQ entry pointed above indicates that the default of Rufus is not to allow dual BIOS + UEFI on Windows installation, and the entry explains precisely why it's done. However, the entry also explains that, if you know what you're doing and want to have dual BIOS + UEFI, you can use the Alt-E cheat mode to do that. So you can have dual BIOS + UEFI bootable Windows USB installers with Rufus. It's just not enabled by default.

    As to multiboot, I'm not planning to support it, ever, in part because I have doubts that most of the people asking for Windows multiboot have the legal licensing from Microsoft to do that many installations. I also expect those who do to have access to the MSDN and the skills level that usually goes with it (since MSDN is usually something that only power users would have access to) so that they can create multiboot Windows ISO using the Windows AIK.
    That's not to say that there aren't some people out there who have legitimate reasons to want multiboot from Rufus, and also have the legal entitlement to do so. However, it really looks to me like most of the requests I get for Windows multiboot are unlikely to be entirely legal, and thus I'd rather not spent time on something that will add A LOT of complexity as well as encourage software piracy... Besides, it always looks to me like people eager on multibooting actually spend a lot more time fine tuning their multiboot options (there's always a new version of the OS to insert, etc), than they would simply recreating the USB according to their need. Considering that, if you have a fast USB 3.0 drive, creating a new Windows installer with Rufus will only take a couple minutes or less, you will definitely save compared to trying to keep an existing multiboot USB up to date.
    Then again, there are other tools that are designed to handle multiboot, so if you really want this feature, you should be able to find what you need.

    Finally, Rufus 2.1 (which I am planning to release later on today -- there's a BETA here) does allow the creation of EFI bootable Windows USB drives that contain files larger than 4GB, as it offers the ability to seamlessly boot NTFS in EFI mode (as a matter of fact, this is a feature that was introduced with Rufus 2.0, but it had a bug, which has been fixed in 2.1).

    So, for you, with Rufus 2.1 Beta, I could reach my goal?

    I have to question why one would want to multi-boot custom ISO file(s)?

    For instance the > The Setup Media ISO = contains all the boot files and setup files needed to run windows setup.. The ISO is just one large file or Container Package of all those setup files.. So why boot into a multi-option boot manager that lists multiple bootable ISO's??

    One could create a WinPE bootable USB and then copy the different widows setup versions into folders.
    Then run from command line ?:\windows 8.1 pro\setup.exe > ?:\windows 8.1\setup.exe > ?:\windows 7\setup.exe

    The overall size would be less - because the PC has already been Booted - and there is no need for all the addintional boot files contained in every ISO...

    If one wanted to boot multi-version of 7 or 8 for a usb (windows to go) one could create a multiboot VHD USB
