I already use pxelinux to boot using pxe. So I prefer to use the same syntax. That's why I ask about loading syslinux from bootmgr.

Then install syslinux to the stick and go the other way round, i.e. add BOOTMGR to the Syslinux menu. ;)

That's similar to how my test server is set up. Its only because PXELinux can boot to WDS and install Linux, but Bootmgr can't install Linux.

Which file system do you use at USB stick?

Do you use FAT, FAT32, NTFS or another one?

Run syslinux.exe, write bootsector output to a file.

Run bcdedit.exe, add this file to bcd store.
