EFI boot menus missing components

running the latest version of PRO BASIC downloaded this week on LinuxMint 18.
Booting using EFI.

I created a USB stick with
  • gparted AMD64
  • RescaTux
  • SystemRescueCD
  • Ultimate Boot CD
  • Mint Cinnamon
The first four are in the "Utility" section, the last one is in the "Linux" section
Creation worked fine and all 5 components are installed on the flash drive.
Booting the flash drive in EFI mode works as well; however, the utility sub-menu only has one menu item for gparted; the other 3 items are missing.

The entry for gparted looks like this:
Code: Select all
menuentry "gparted AMD64 EFI" {
    configfile /gparted_64/EFI/boot/grub.cfg

I confirmed that this cfg file exists on the flash drive. For the missing components, the components are on the drive, and
  • rescatux has a efi/grub folder, but no cfg file in it
  • srcd has no efi folder
  • ubcd has no efi folder

Also confirmed that the missing components do exist in /SARDU/utility.cfg

Is there a way to boot these components that are missing the EFI loaders/configurations - either using EFI or legacy boot mode?

Thank you...

The other problem with this setup is this:

When I try to boot the flash drive in legacy mode rather than EFI mode, I do get to a grub boot menu that contains options for the two Linux systems in my HDD, rather than the syslinux menu with the sardu options.

Why is this?

Excuse me for delay of reply, I had lost these post.
Not all ISOs have been created to support UEFI.
Isn't easy convert the menu from syslinux to grub (UEFI).

I've been updated the rules of SRCD and Rescatux
Mint and gParted works fine
UBCD...isn't easy
