Hello,

 

Is there a way to boot from original windows install isos without any modifications or answer files or key files just like using Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool from microsoft but for multiple iso's ?, just select the prefered file from simple menu and boot from it
for example:

windows 7 english 32 bit
windows 7 english 64 bit
windows 10 english 32 bit
windows 10 english 64 bit
windows 7 other language 32 bit, etc...

 

sorry for my poor english.

 

thanks

Yes, there is.

Easier would probably be Easy2boot:
http://www.easy2boot...a-helper-drive/

or WinsetupfromUSB (I am not really sure that recent version uses "untouched" .iso's however):
http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/

though the "solution" or "workaround" they use is not the only possible one, the generic thread where more possible methods were discussed is here:
http://reboot.pro/to...required-cddvd/

and the "good ol' way":
http://www.rmprepusb...utorials/winiso

 

More here, including uses of a "generic" PE and running WinNTSetup, that by applying the image will be faster than using setup:

I concur that E2B will be the easiest way to go (though not necessarily the "best", and there are certainly more complex ways you can do this that will give you an actual learning experience). E2B has never failed to boot anything I've thrown at it.

Easy2boot does use answer files. It's a automatic feautre. Can you use this?

Clarify your needs:
If you like to use original windows install isos without any modifications, then use the original isos as intented by the manufacturer:
write a DVD, boot from USB DVD drive.

This can be a virtual USB DVD drive too. This mounts the ISO file to a DVD drive.

Thank you all very very much for answers

as cdob wrote Easy2boot uses answer files and .key files for windows 10 install and i just want mount and boot the iso's as they downloaded from microsoft but from single usb stick. like theoretically copy the 6 (for example) iso's to the usb stick and each time boot from selected. just select the wanted file and boot from the file itself as it bootable.

Tried yumi and i doesn't support multiple iso's. it always overrides the last one.

yumi's method is also good for me. Although yumi extracts the iso content. it emulates it like it was burned into DVD

 

tried www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/winiso as Wonko the Sane wrote but unfortunately it didn't work for me for 6 iso's (3 different languages both 32 and 64 bit)

 

any other ideas please?

 

thanks alot

That tutorial should work fine it was the "original" one until it was "simplified" by adding the unattended.xml.
 
Do READ the given thread:
http://reboot.pro/to...required-cddvd/
everything needed is there.
 
Since the given rmprepusb tutorial did work fine at the time, at least for 7, there must be something that you have different (or done differently) I have to presume.

Now if you provide us with something more than "it didn't work", maybe :unsure: we can help you having the one or the other method working...

There is no way to mount windows 7 iso with native tools, you have to add third party tools.
Within default win7 *.iso at a usb stick, no third party addons: no way, it's not possible.
A default windows 10 boot.wim can't mount a iso too. Someting unknown is missing.


 

extracts the iso content.

That's a major different approach. Setup finds the files.
With manufactuer tools:

Run manufacturer Windows 10 tool and create a x86 / x64 AIO USB stick. The manufacturer supports Win 10 AIO out of the box.
https://www.microsof...load/windows10/

Copy extracted Windows 7 and 8 files to several subfolders.
\Win7x86
\Win7x64
\Win8x86
\Win8x64

Boot the Windows 10 AIO USB drive
do NOT press continue
press shift F10
next {USB drive letter}:
And run '\Win7x64\sources\setup.exe'

Enhance this, add Win7/8 boot.wim to \boot\bcd and \efi\microsoft\boot\bcd

This approach supports BIOS mode.
And supports UEFI mode with secure boot.

No answer files and .key files or third party tool used.


Automatic approach with edited boot.wim. Text files added, no third party driver.
