  may explain some architectural concepts ?
Posted by: zled - 11-02-2014, 07:44 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - No Replies

I work as an IT manager in ARTEA - Italy (government agricultural paying agency of CEE structural funds).

Your product is the best that i found on the internet. It's extremely interesting for troubleshhooting on a PC using an clear and not infected windows operative system. May you explain some concepts about the architecture of WintoUsb ? I am sure that all the people using it like me will appreciate for Learning purpouse about the argument!

  Possible to upgrade Windows Technical Preview?
Posted by: Sybok - 10-29-2014, 06:45 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


Is there any chance to upgrade the Windows Technical Preview to the latest preview version if using a Windows-To-Go USB drive created by WinToUSB? I'm asking because the default upgrade mechanism in Windows Technical Preview doesn't work for me. Instead, Windows keeps telling me that it can't install to a USB drive when I try to install the newest preview. If, however, you have to do a complete reinstall for every new version of the preview, the whole idea of installing the technical preview to a USB drive seems rather pointless to me.

Any ideas?

  wintousb and windows 8 certified usb sticks
Posted by: danskeman - 10-28-2014, 11:02 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Windows 8 certified USB sticks are different to normal USB sticks as they have the "fixed" rather than "removable" drive status set.

This is so Windows 8 Enterprise can create Windows 8 to Go on a (certified) USB stick.

I guess in theory, Wintousb should be able to create a 64 bit UEFI based (windows 8/8.1 or 10 preview) usb setup with a (fixed status) usb stick. We know it cannot do this for normal (removable status) usb sticks.

However, Windows 8 certified usb sticks are pricey, and I was wondering if anybody has tried using Wintousb with such a stick (before I decide to invest in one),

  USB 3 Issue with EUFI installation
Posted by: danskeman - 10-25-2014, 01:51 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


I have successfully installed Windows 10 Technical preview (64 bit) on a 100 GB external hard disk (GPT formatted etc), for booting on a 64bit Sony Vaio with EUFI booting.

I have set my eufi/bios to boot fom USB,and the hard disk boots perfectly when plugged into a USB2 port, but fails when using a USB3 port.
As the pc boots up, it ignores (or faisl to detect) the hard drive properly and then just boots up into normal windows in the pCs internal hard disk.

However, if I try and boot from a USB3 boot pendrive for another program (Macrium Reflect), the PC boots up fine, so I know the USB3 port is fine, and the PC can boot from it.

I suspect that the USB3 drivers are not being properly installed by wintousb, or being picked up from windows 10.

Any ideas/suggestions?

  Error "Copy file failed.(0x0000008000B40000)" when trying to create a USB
Posted by: Sanoo - 10-21-2014, 12:01 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (6)


I wanted to install Windows on an USB drive so that I can use it on different computers. I heard about WinToUSB and gave it a try. At seventy five percent (with four retries) I get an error "Copy file failed.(0x0000008000B40000)". I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate onto a Kingston DataTraveller 3.0 (USB 3.0).

What can I do? I tried three times.

I appreciate any help.

  WinToUSB does not install Windows 7 on USB hardDrive
Posted by: toto - 10-11-2014, 06:38 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

I try to Install W7 on a USB harddrive.
Steps 1 to 7 from your guide work perfectly.
After selecting the main partition from my device, when I press Next, nothing happens. In fact WinToUSB is closed, without any visible message.
My Iso is Windows 7 Ultimate French edition, downloaded from Microsoft.
My harddrive is empty, with NTFS fresh formatted active partition. Connected through a USB3.0 port. (I understood to use W7 I will then have to boot from USB2, but I presume the install can be done through USB3)

Any Idea about the root cause?

Attached a copy of my User.Log :

There is also a crash.dmp file, but I didn't find how to include it here

  WinToUSB, Norton Ghost and BIOS priority problem
Posted by: Tomek - 10-05-2014, 05:36 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

Hi there. I have a big problem. All in WinToUSB good works, but the problem starts using Norton Ghost.

I have two operating systems:
- One internal, installed on the internal hard disk (Windows 7 Home Premium x64).
- Second external installed on an external drive Samsung M3 Portable (same Windows 7 Home Premium x64).

I have laptop Asus K53SV.

Everything works fine until use Norton Ghost and restore the partition inside the laptop. The problem arises in the BIOS. After uploading the image on the internal drive, bios do not boots external drive, only internal. (Although the boot is set to an external drive).

I tested it twice - always the same thing happens. Now, I can not run an external system. Do I need to upload system to an external drive again after using Norton Ghost (to recover the internal disk)?

I never tried to recover an external drive Norton Ghost, but after this experience I'd be afraid that it does not run the internal drive, and it would be a real tragedy.

Please help.

  can we try Technicle Preveiw of Windows 10
Posted by: shnk - 10-02-2014, 06:28 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (14)

I have downloaded ISO files of 64 and 32 bit Windows 10 Technical Preview. I Wish to install it on my Segate External Hard disk but it gives following Error message.

Cannot find bootable image. (0x00000C401F0000)

I have also tried installing enterprise edition to Windows 10. It did not work either, as I was getting the same error message.

There is no problem with quality of download or system requirement as I can install Windows 8.1 pro on the same external hard drive.

Please help me, if you think that I am missing something.
