If you need to UEFI-boot and your target systems do not have an MBR\Legacy boot option, you can add WinPE boot files to a second FAT32 partition on your E2B USB drive.

Due to a re-structuring of some grub4dos code in E2B v1.A1 and later, a few bugs were introduced (like the DIRECT\AUTO menu not working and Win7 instal ISOs not working). Please update to the latest version (it's very quick and there is no need to remake your E2B drive).

It seems there were still some bugs in the latest version of grub4dos which was included in E2B v1.91, and 1.91A. Please use v1.91B (you can use the Update E2B button to quickly update your drive).
The Grub2 Beta 6 release had a bug and you may find some payload files were not listed in the menu. This was due to the code which detects a 64-bit CPU having a bug - the BIT64 variable was never set! For example, \_ISO\MAINMENU\ubuntu.iso would not be displayed in the menu. This is...

By looking at the hits I get on the LatestE2B.txt file which is only fetched from the E2B website when the MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE.cmd script is run, I can see that over 30 days, there were 31K hits. This averages out to over 1000 E2B drives being made every day.
This new version allows you to create ext3 and ext4 persistence files, as well as ext2 files. I recommend ext3, because ext2 persistence files seem to get easily corrupted.
