    Additionally it appears that the important point from the post that @JorgeB shared is that it takes a recent version of syslinux (likely beta) to make this work. Can we please get a new Windows and macOS boot drive builder that inserts this new version of syslinux so we can more easily test to see if this DOES solve the issue?

     

    There are a lot of us who would be happy to test!

    It may be possible to use Rufus to generate a syslinux 6.04 version of the unRAID USB flash drive. Does anyone have experience making Rufus built drives? Do you generate it with normal options and then copy the files onto it? How can you ensure GPT for UEFI boot? Even after I made a GPT USB flash drive with gparted Windows is trying to say it's a MBR partition scheme for the drive I built with linux....
