WinSetupFromUSB 1.0 Beta 8 / 0.2.3 Download Last Update. This application will offer you the solution to installing Windows or Linux version using a USB flash drive.How to start:1. First make sure you have a properly formatted USB disk or flash media.
It must have a MBR and an active partition set.
a) USB flash media- format it with RMPrepUSB selecting “Boot as HDD” and “XP bootable” options.
Note that it will DELETE all partitions. NTFS is reported faster on some systems, your USB stick parameters are also factor.
Whereas NTFS generally is not recommended for USB flash media, if you are not planning excessive usage, but rather occasional installs from it, then it should be safe to use it as long as you can boot from it.
There is another way to format USB flash media- to use filter driver, such as Hitachi microdrive filter driver or dummydisk.sys (included, look in FILES\MULTIpartitionUSBstick folder). Using such driver will ‘make’ your stick to appear to Windows as fixed disk. In this case, when formatting Windows will write MBR on in with partition information.
You may now use Disk management console, or third party programs to make multiple partitions and format them as you desire.
