This has some minor improvements like Support for Windows 10, wxwidgets 3.x, and UEFI. Hopefully Congelli will merge these changes if he becomes active again.

THanks for this. It worked almost falwlessly for me. Only thing, it did not set the boot flag on the partition on the USB. I do not know why, there seems to be no log with details. I fixed it with gparted in 20sec. By the way, it appears that the gui needs to be started as root, which was not written anywhere.
