Win7PE on USB Flash Drive


Best Answer pscEx , 26 February 2014 - 07:00 PM

Hi, I'me new here, I searched for an answer and I didn't find (problably there is, but I wasn't able to catch it sorry).

 

I used winbuilder_2013.09.01 to create Win7 live CD, it was my first time using this program and it's absolutely amazing. It did everything and I've got a CD Live that works perfectly.

 

But I need to use it on a laptop without optical disc reader, so I have to make a usb drive version of Win7 live.

I read the forum, but I still have no clue about how to do it.

Thank you in advance.

First of all: Welcome in our community!

 

Sorry that I have overseen your question!

 

I got to know the post by dummyano's answer.

 

WinBuilder builds exclusivelly an ISO, because this can be burned on "all" OSs, not only on Windows. Generating a bootable USB pen, is different on Windows, Linux, Mac, etc ...

 

Under Windows it is rather easy to build a booting flash drive using RmPrepUSB and Grub4DOS. In my multiPE project I use this method.

 

Tomorrow I'll post a (hopefully working) description how to create such a flash drive with your Win7PE ISO.

For a multiboot solution you can try Easy2Boot and add multiple WinBuilder ISO files to a USB drive - see my blog post here

Hi All!

 

Really you need Syslinux and/or Grub4Dos. But is not as quick to learn if you have no knowledge (and not to mention the time spent on testing it).

 

Use the suggestion of Steve. He has created videos, in my opinion very good information, and demonstrates how it works.
