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! [ https://tinyurl.com/ovfetq ]
