Default Any WinPE experts in here wanna make $25 for a favor

I want to create a bootable USB flash drive that will boot to a menu and allow me to either boot to DOS and run a BIOS update utility, or Boot to WinPE and run Ghost32.exe to re-image a PC.

If booting to DOS, there are 6 different BIOS versions I want to be able to choose from.

If Booting to WinPE, there are at least a dozen differnent versions of ghost image files I want to be able to deploy.



Currently, I can create a bootable USB and boot into DOS, and come to a menu for the 6 different BIOS updates.

I can also Boot into WinPE and run ghost to deploy a certain image (just one, no menu), which is created using the Ghost boot disk wizard.

I want to combine what I can already do, and add functionality.
I don't have time or patience to learn it myself, so I am seeking assistance.

Let me know if you are willing to assist
