Here is a tool to create a bootable USB drive from an ISO.
Starting from an ISO to extract (copy) files is much faster than copying from a folder or from a mounted ISO.

It is faster than the Copy To USB plugins but a little slower than the very good Rufus.
However, depending on the ISO used, it is compatible with BIOS/UEFI (Sadly, Rufus does not allow), as SE projects allow.
FAT32 is required for UEFI and the dual boot mode.

Well, a screenshot is better


Updated v1.4.1:
USB7ice.7z (969.34 kB - downloaded 54 times.))
With 5% transparency: * USB7ice.7z (969.35 kB - downloaded 250 times.)
Opaque:                       * USB7ice_opaque.7z (969.3 kB - downloaded 158 times.)

You right, I renamed it to USB7ice  :thumbsup:
I do not know why  :wink:

And updated to v1.4.1 with:
. A correction to bootmgr in partition boot record.
. Transparency of the Open folder icon after window minimize and restoration.

Confirmed works.
I used a Samsung 16 GB EVO SD-card. BIOS mode.
Part #1: FAT32 + Grub4DOS
Win10PESE - without the "irritating" yellow triangle.
Thank You; testing compositions with Apps "Run From CD" makes it with your tool mutch more easier.

Part #2: NTFS + BCD
I was in Win10PESE, as the first attempt fails at the Formatting section (from Part #1 FAT32 - to NTFS). I formatted then the disk with Windows-Format NTFS. After that procedure, your USB7ice did it's job very well.
But: My SD-card slot causes all the time sometimes problems. So I would say: Ignore my info. I am in no wise confused at the rapture.
Then I started my SD-Card, and first I saw no Boot-entry; black screen. Later I discovered the delay-time is set to 3 seconds. Too short for my computer. From the moment where I can see something - the screen shows the progress bar at 10%.
Next step, I copied a Win7PESE_x64.ISO onto SD-card, made a second ISO-Boot-entry - and set menu-time to 30 seconds. >> Success also full. The behavior of this Win7PESE_x64 is (X:, Y:) comparable to Win10PESE_x64.

Thanks for your feedback Gerhard  :thumbsup:
The "irritating" yellow triangle is probably linked to your SD-card slot.
The yellow triangle is created by MountPEmedia if it can not find the flag file CdUsb.Y (or ISO) on on one of the drives availables.
And after waiting 30 seconds max to get all available drive (DriveGetDrive API). Of course, it does not wait 30 seconds if it finds the drive.
It seems that your SD-card is not mounted by windows during this time !

About Format FAT32 or NTFS in USB7ice, It is the same process only the switch for the file system is different. So, also, probably linked to your SD-card slot too.

looks neat. interesting that you chose purebasic.

@ChrisR,
the 30 seconds I set in bcd-store. (Ntfs+Win7bootloader)
Now I have the time to find out / reproduce (my) SD-slot-format issue.
And want to find out the (Win10PESE-) driver/hardware/software problem.
======================Result=========================
Source=Win10_x64_Enterprise;
Win10PE_SE: MS-driver for Generic-Multi-Card USB Device is the same with same version-number as in native Win10 & Source-DVD;

ila_rendered

As often as I plug in SD-Card and pull it out again after a few seconds - the Device Manager responds immediately. 10x, 20x, 30x  <--> , no problems. The SD-card is every time recognized correctly.
And, if the 'Generic-Multi-Card USB Device' is listed in Device Manager - I can use it with (format-)tools, or your USB7ice.
So, this single random issue has had nothing to do with your program.
There are only this guesses left:
- soiled contact tongues
- chip-warming/lack of heat dissipation [100°C (write-mode 10MB/s) no rarity at substandard miniSD in SD-card-adapter | A small 5 Volt-USB cooling fan eliminates thermal problems]
  But I already have retired these (mini)SD-cards with thermal problems; these are useless muck.
- Chipset-driver Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3B3C:
  Perhaps, problems can appear, if a standard-driver (instead of chipset-driver)  is in use. But if at least unthinkable with Win10.

Everything OK. I have to live with coincidences, greetings.

yep, PureBasic is really interesting, more i use it, more i find it great :thumbsup:
Otherwise, I reduced a bit the transparency from 10% to 5%
and I added to the first post a version without transparency for those who prefer.
