Creating a bootable USB stick for IBMi is no longer possible under Windows 10 and 11.

Since the latest Windows updates it is no longer possible to use UDF images for example B_Group1_.... to a bootable for IBMi (I-BASE...) USB stick. The new system program PARTMGR.SYS must be replaced with an older version to make it work again. Please adapt your routine for the creation of a bootable USB stick incl. the copy function for UDF images to a USB stick.

    IBM believes that the request described has been solved and is available with the Bootable LIC USB Utility for IBM i v1.3.2.0. This update to the utility may be downloaded from IBM Entitled Systems Support, and may be found alongside the IBM i LIC USB images for all supported IBM i releases.

    USB media written by the utility on a Windows system will be done so in a way as to remain compatible with supported Windows operating systems. USB media written by the utility on a MacOS or Linux PC will not be interoperable with Windows, but may continue to be used by the respective operating system.
