  Unable to boot internal hard disk
Posted by: Hans - 12-28-2014, 05:10 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (3)

I have installed WinToUsb win 8.1 successfully on an external ssd flash drive. This works great and fast with USB 3.0

Now I cannot boot anymore from my internal SSD drive ( stop 0x000000ED error ) and show as RAW in the hard disk manager.

Creating an bootable usb drive (to repair) won't boot either even if my flash drive is unplugged.

HP Elitebook 840 G1 with Samsung 256 ssd. Internal drive win 7 pro.

Any suggestions are appreciated

  Win 10 Build 9901 - WinTo USB Error
Posted by: zaphire - 12-28-2014, 10:51 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

Hi, I am trying to create a Win 10 Build 9901 WinToUSB onto a USB 3.0 attached SSD.
I'm running WinToUSB 2.0 Beta as Administrator.

When I point WinToUSB at the ISO file I get the following error:

Cannot find bootable image.(0x000000C403BF0000)

This ISO contains an install.wim in the Sources folder.

  Massaging an existing Windows installation to boot USB
Posted by: des421 - 12-28-2014, 08:09 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I've created a WinToUSB installation of Windows 8.1 on a SSD in a USB enclosure (it didn't like any flash drives) to study the differences, with the intention of modify an existing clone of an SATA UEFI disk to boot USB. Windows won't tolerate 2 disks mounted with the same GUID, but a clone accurate to this degree will certainly replace the original and boot.

I maintain Windows XP & 7 clones by swapping the Drive Letter & Volume Label assignments in MountedDevices between the source & destination drives. In Windows 7 the cloned bootbcd files having been Repaired to include the clone drive Disk Signatures which are then Excluded from update.

I've managed to boot a Windows 7 clone in a USB 2.0 enclosure (MBR disks) by disabling paging and modifying several system services in the clone's registry. While this will run it isn't worthwhile as performance is too poor. But demonstrates the possibility.

I'm reasonably sure since WinToUSB has demonstrated Windows 8.1 will run satisfactorily from USB, that a clone of an existing installation can be modified to boot USB. And these modifications reversed so the same clone will then boot SATA again? But lack the specific boot file & registry knowledge required yet, especially with the new UEFI scheme.

Any input would be appreciated: DES

  Several attempts do not boot
Posted by: thc420 - 12-25-2014, 05:47 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I am trying to make a Windows 8.1 x86 portable install with your software.

The best result I can get is a spinning circle with the windows logo.

I have used multiple different installation sources.

The hardware I am using is a PNY USB3.0 64GB stick.

Not sure what the issue is.

I have been trying with 2.0 beta...I am trying 1.6 official now.

Lightbulb USB 3.0 on Win7 installed on external HDD with WinToUsb?
Posted by: razand - 12-23-2014, 11:57 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

Due to office policy and protected software, I am successfully using the "system installed on external HDD" solution for more than 5 years. With Xp and Win7. But the installation was always a very tricky and complicated part, with lots of steps, a lot of time spent searching the web and different settings. Some additional advanced skills were required, not for everybody.
I have found your software recently. It worked for me with no problems. Helped me a lot. Really great job! Very nice and simple tool you have created. Thank you!

Last time I installed Win 7 Ultimate, using WinToUsb, some days ago. Easy and no problems.
But I got stuck since then in the idea of trying to install USB 3.0 support for my new system.
Before, in my previous installations, not using wintousb, I still didn't have that, it was on USB 2.0. It is ok, working. For the programs didn't feel any difference compared to a normal installation. But for the file handling, USB 3.0 can change a lot the speed.

So, as you said, Win7 is not offering support for USB 3.0. I've digged some time on the internet and found out that you can find USB3.0 drivers for win 7 and you can install them separately.
Unfortunately, there seem to be a bug in this and when you install them, before and during installation, you have to disconnect all the USB devices connected. Which is not possible running the system on a USB HDD. Logically Smile Otherwise you will get a nice blue screen on the next boot, after installation of USB 3.0 drivers and the system must be restored to fix it.

I am thinking that a possible solution would be installing Win 7 on the internal drive and then adding the USB 3.0 drivers and then using your very new added feature "Clone current system to an USB drive". What do you think?
Since I already installed Win7, with everything, including a lot of big softwares, which took a lot of time, another possible solution in my case, it would be to clone the already installed USB HDD to an internal HDD (here I am not sure that it will work smoothly and that the win7 installation will still work), then install the USB3.0 drivers on the internal HDD and then clone back the HDD to external, or use your new added tool for that. What do you say?

Thanks in advance for your reply, and thank you again anyway for the great job with this software Smile

  Clone Win OS to ext. drive without losing it on laptop?
Posted by: Davidslegend - 12-04-2014, 12:48 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - No Replies

Hello:

I read about WinToUSB on Lifehacker.com & was wondering if I could use my current Win laptop to clone the OS to try it out on an external hard drive.

Goal 1: Run Windows on External Hard drive when using my Mac computer
Goal 2: Run Office on the drive as well
Goal 3: Not lose current Window OS 8.1 on my second PC

Thank you for your response.

Best Regards,
davidslegend
