Previously I wrote about how to install Windows 7 and Windows 8 from USB using a tool from Microsoft called “Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool”, it’s simple and easy to use, but you have to use an ISO file to create a bootable flash drive. Actually, there is another tool to create a bootable flash drive called WiNToBootic.
With WiNToBootic you can create a bootable flash drive in the simplest way ever, because all you need to do is download this free small software then extracts it and you are ready to go. Even you don’t need to install it because WiNTBootic is a standalone program.
WiNToBootic is a freeware that allows you an easy creation of bootable Windows USB hard or flash disk from an ISO image, CD/DVD or Folder. This product is focused on creation of boot disks based on Microsoft Windows NT 6.x OS family (Vista, 7, 8, Server 2008, Server 2012).WiNToBootic
WiNToBootic has more features than any other USB boot making software, such as NTFS Support, Windows 7/8 Bootloader, Burn from ISO 9660 (Joliet) and ISO 13346 (UDF), Burn from DVD or Folder, and Boot support for Windows PE2/PE3/PE4. And this is how you use this software to create Windows 7 or Windows 8 bootable USB flash drive:
Plug in your USB Flash Drive, and then download WiNToBootic:
- Windows XP or later (32-bit/64-bit)
- .NET Framework 2.0
- Admin Rights
Extract/unZIP and execute WiNToBootic.exe > Select the drive letter > Select Quick Format > >Drag & Drop or select via Open Dialog an ISO/DVD/Folder with bootable Windows content > Click “Do it!”
I’m able to transfer all Windows 7 setup files from an ISO to my USB flash drive in 6 minutes and 53 seconds, quite fast isn’t it? By the way, this is a free software but if you like this software you can donate to support further development.
Doesn’t have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 installed on your computer? Download here.
