On my newer PC, I have a FAT32 USB stick for my Rescue Media; it works great on my newer system which uses UEFI.
My old laptop (uses Legacy BIOS) created a Rescue Media successfully on a FAT32 USB stick but gives error, "Missing Operating System", when trying to boot from that USB stick. I tried both settings for the checkbox (Enable Multi-boot) and the error was the same. The only way I could solve the problem was to format the USB stick as NTFS and then create the Rescue Media. I have to create Rescue media for more PCs and laptops. Is there a general rule for the following parameters:
1. Rescue Media (USB stick) is FAT32 or NTFS
2. Enable Multi-boot should be checked or unchecked
At the moment I only tested two devices which finally work.
A) Old laptop with Legacy BIOS (I formatted USB as NTFS and uncheched Multi-boot)
B) Newer PC with UEFI (USB stick came preformatted as FAT32 and I checked Multi-boot)
