How To: Make Bootable USB For Any Windows OS
GetUSB.info has reported on making a bootable USB with nt60 boot sector, and here is another post about bootable USB, but this time for making the boot device for any Windows OS…or should I say from any Windows OS.
WinToFlash is a slick little tool I came across which allows you to make a bootable USB from any source Windows installation CD or DVD.
WinToFlash will slurp out the boot sectors required to make a bootable USB from your source CD or DVD. Simply pop in the Windows disk, get a 4GB stick [8GB is better] that can read/write faster than a promo give-away drive, and run WinToFlash.
Here is a list of items you can perform using WinToFlash for bootable USB devices:
- Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 to a USB drive transfer
- WinPE (BartPE based on Windows XP/2003, WinPE based on Windows Vists/2008/7 and so on) to a USB drive transfer
- USB media erasing full or quick
- Create a USB drive with emergency bootloader for Windows XP/2003
- MS-DOS to a USB drive transfer
- Create a USB drive with Windows XP/2003 Recovery Console
You certainly don’t need a lot of power to run the utility, that’s for sure. But if not sure, here are the min specs:
- Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster
- At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM
- At least 20 megabytes (MB) of available space on the hard disk
- Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
- Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution
- Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7
WinToFlash is asking for dontations if you find the tool helpful. Good luck! [ http://tinyurl.com/ovfetq ]
