For my 8GB USB, I created BartPE & PartedMagic together.

 

However, when it boots up, I only get grub showing me PartedMagic.

 

How do we access BartPE?

You have grub (legacy) or grub2 or grub4dos?

How (EXACTLY) did you create your stick?

Are you using a "flat" BartPE (and using "i386" or "minint") or a .iso/img?

Yes sorry.

 

You know there's 3 different options for formatting USB stick?

I liked the RMPrepUSB way (because it looked better than Bootice.... and FBinstTool didn't exist before).

 

RMPrepUSB step 5 is where I put the path to BartPE...

this was a BartPE folder used before BartPE creates the ISO.

 

Now I don't use RMPrepUSB anyway. I use FBinstTool since it seems easier.

 

I mount a BartPE ISO and specify the path in the "UBCD4Win/Win/WinBuilder/Windows FLPC setup/BartPE" box.

That works better now and I get the boot menu option and can boot into it.

 

Now I run into bigger problems (will create a new thread for that).

You mean you know ONLY 3 of them? :w00t: :unsure:

 

However you are still not providing enough info, happy you solved the issue anyway (one way or the other). :)

I do know there's other ways...

 

I just realised why we are both confused from the start.

 

I've been using WinSetupFromUSB tool which I got from:

http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/

 

The help in the program/app directs me to this forums.. so hence i thought this forums was all about WinSetupFromUSB... but after looking at the forums title... it's not :S

Yep :).

WinsetupFromUSB is just one of the methods developed here.

 

However so that you know WinsetupFromUSB uses grub4dos (but also BootICE can use it and as well RMPREPUSB, as a matter of fact the "companion" to RMPREPUSB "Easy2boot" makes use of  grub4dos through a set of batches/scripts).
