The software worked OK for me, but, I'm not trying to boot MX - (Clonezilla, Super Grub Disk and three grub-rescue ISO's that I made).

Report success with Easy2Boot_v1.80DPMS.7z
created on 32 GB Imation Nano Pro, USB2.
(I have no USB3 and assume that it works.)

I used the 32-bit bootlace.com
and it works on both 32 & 64 bit.

I can confirm that Easy2Boot v 1.80DPMS works to create a multiboot USB stick on a 32GB Toshiba USB3.0 "TransMemory" stick (plugged into a USB3.0 port). I just made it a few hours ago.

I used the Jan 2016 version of 0.4.5c for grub4dos .

Re: bootlace, I just followed Richard's commands earlier in this thread; I have no idea if bootlace 32-bit or 64, but my PC is 64-bit.

I'm typing this from within systemrescueCD running on the Toshiba stick. I haven't tested it on MX15, though.

UPDATED:
My MX15 March 2016 snapshot (4.3.3 liquorix) boots up amazingly fast from this USB stick. Faster than the latest Manjaro 16.06.1, systemrescueCD, Simplicity Linux and rescatux isos, and the Aug 2013 pmagic iso.

Thanks, happy to hear
that USB-3 is as fast as I've heard.
This Imation Mano Pro 32GB USB-2
is much faster than the older 8GB
probably USB-1, sticks.
