The (as recommended in this v5 tute) is very good.

I got it from your Sky Drive, I forgot how to make one.

I tried to add it to an existing bootable USB stick, but got this:

I burned it to a DVD and it booted fine though.

I used YUMI to add the WinPE with grub instead and it added, but it won't boot, here's the error.

You have blanks in the file name Gary. YUMI doesn't like that.

I stumbled across that problem some time ago. It took a while to find the fix.

Next time try Rufus. That did it in 1 minute for me - and the stick works.
