Thanks. I never knew the command swap;boot 80, to boot from hard dusk when using a cdrom, I just use "boot 80" and it works,, But not from USB... I only have one USB inserted and it keeps booting the usb... Anyway, the only mystery is that your v2 script cannot be used on a USB3 based stick, even if it is inserted into a USB2 socket.. The exboot usb burn works ok on this USB3 DOK even when plugged to a USB3 (boots very fast as expected).

Maybe you misunderstood me ???

What I mean is that menu command 'boot 80' is used from CD\DVD-unit and 'swap;boot 80' is used from USB drive :)
The 'swap' is used to 'jump' from USB drive to the first hard disk drive, which is assumed to be the first internal harddisk drive - and 'boot 80' is the target for the first bootable partition on the first hard drive ('boot 81' is hereby the second bootable drive).
Note: the USB drive (USB stick or USB harddrive) is assuemed to be the first USB disk drive connected to motherboard.

Unfortunately some BIOS isn't that clever and behaves odd - something we daily have to live with :(

This is strange ???
Take a closer look if you can do something with the BIOS - in which order and which 'drives' that is the 'first', 'second' etcetera bootable drive!

Quote: "your v2 script cannot be used on a USB3 based stick, even if it is inserted into a USB2 socket"
Okay I got the point - but cannot see why it shouldn't work ???
I'll see in a couple of months what I can find out about this (I have not hardware at present time to test with)

--------------------------
You could also test using swap;boot 81 and swap;boot 82 etcetera as a test to figure out what is going on here
Note: 'boot 80' is the command to boot from first bootable hard drive and 'boot 81' is the command to boot from the second hard drive and as told 'swap' is to 'swap' between the hard drive and the USB drive (USB stick or USB hard drive)

------------------
Finally; you don't need my script 'easyboot-usb_v2.script' if your intension is to only use FAT32 - use 'Burn' in Easyboot
My script is mainly for NTFS - where script launch the ISO-file of EasyBoot instead of using 'ezldr'
The 'loader file' 'ezldr' used in EasyBoot, cannot be run from NTFS - that's why my script instead launch the ISO-file created by EasyBoot.

This means you can have two partitions to you USB drive (usually a USB harddrive), where partition one (the 'boot-partition') has the ISO-file with EasyBoot menu which then launch a linux ISO-file on the second partition (which has FAT32)
Note: you can still have WinPE-ISO-files inside the EayBoot ISO-file (MsDart60 or similar NT6-WinPE) which run excellent inside EasyBoot ISO-file that you have on the NTFS-partition.

I'll say the 'sky is the limit' for what we can do with EasyBoot
