#The ISO is WinPE 3 based. To make it work, it needs to find the NBRTSTRT.exe file in the root of the drive

#and also you need to copy two folders from inside the ISO to your USB drive, so as well as the ISO file on your USb drive you need:





title NSRD

map /_ISO/NBRT.iso (0xff)

map --hook

chainloader (0xff)
