Easy2Boot v2.10 is now fully released

 I have updated the, and FossHub sites with the new v2.10 of E2B.

I received no feedback (good or bad!) from the pre-release, so I hope its OK.

Here are the changes:

  • Bugfix for Strelec iso and DLC iso not booting to Windows (bcd file was missing)
  • Bugfix  in /UPDATE_E2B_DRIVE.CMD which did not update agFM and Ventoy
  • Bugfix  in SWITCH_E2B.exe – fix not recursing directories below /_ISO/xxxx and ‘Only search /_ISO folder’ unticked not working. Also fix not always seeing USB drives if they have a high drive number (e.g. system has 4 drives but USB drive number is numbered 5 or higher).
  • Bugfix for Make_E2B_USB_Drive.cmd for case where user has used a low network drive letter (e.g. E:) and 2nd ptn is assigned with same drive letter by Windows!
  • Speed up counting of Windows payloads when loading E2B Main Menu
  • Bitdefender 2017 Sample .mnu files added
  • WIN11 folder added plus added Win11 XML files and TPM fix ReadMe txt file
  • PassPass updated for recent Win10 versions
  • New default ‘Winter’ wallpaper
  • Change E2BPlate.bmp to show and change format to jpeg
  • Change URL in F1 help files and other files ( to

It is slightly different from the pre-release (mainly changing '' text to '' in .mnu files, F1 help files, etc.). I also changed the Win11 XML file names to say Win11 instead of Win10.

AFAIK, Win10 and Win11 can use the same XML files (there are just a few new XML settings in Win11 that are not supported by Win10).

The E2BPlate.bmp file was previously a compressed .bmp and so did not work when loaded by the E2B_Editor.exe program. I have now changed the format so that it is in fact a JPEG file and so the E2B_Editor will now display it as a 'STAMP'.

Contact me if you spot any issues.

P.S. There is also a new version of Strelec today (here) which I have not tested yet, but it should have the USB 3.2 driver bugfix in it.
