  Windows 7
Posted by: boraxkarloff - 09-12-2014, 05:02 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - No Replies

A couple of issues-
1-system crashes (BSOD) when I try to install SP1. Since there is no system recovery, I have to redo the whole process.

2-Windos 7 deletes my System Restore points on Windows 8. I had the same problem when I dual booted XP & Vista. There was a registry fix for this. Will it work in this situation?
For clarity, my main OS is Windows 8 with Win 7 on an external HD.

  Win to usb meessed up regular windows
Posted by: bzand - 08-22-2014, 03:32 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I made a windows 8.1 pottable operating system with win to usb on my flahdrive. I ran it for about three days with no problem. Yesterday I ran.it than ran regular Windows (Windows 8)and it was messed up. Windows 8 took forever to load and Word,Goole Eart, and Adobe Reader wouldn't open and kept giving errors. I looke farthe into the errors and they all ocured in the users folder (C:/Users/zfamily(Our user). It did we need administrator permision in which we never did before. The pc is a 64 bit windows 8. I ran 32 bit windows 8.1 so I don know if the 32 bit diffren is what nessed it up

Today, I lost access to my USB hard drive. It wasn't taken away from me, it wasn't broken or destroyed... the operating system I put on it 2 weeks ago just blue screened with the classic 7B error, which is not supposed to happen, right?

This was the result of me trying to find drivers for my hardware, and some of those drivers included USB, so after it started failing, I attempted a few solution tactics with no luck.

Being a technologically advanced person, I decided to rig it to a virtual machine on another operating system and see if it would boot. 7B. Startup repair? Won't find itself. Installation disk? Doesn't recognize it as an "offline OS" when I enter DaRT.

I need to know how I can take bad drivers off, because I am certain that's what's causing it. I can't use "driver managers" because those are designed for the current system. There has to be a program out there for managing the drivers of another disk.

Do not suggest reformatting the drive. I don't want to see a little over 100 GB of data wiped in seconds, and I don't have any backup drives, which (I can agree) would be very important for a time like this. But this is problematic for me and I need a solution.

Read below for an update.

  Windows load indefinitely
Posted by: colonel_angel - 08-01-2014, 05:57 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)


I created a bootable live version of Winrows 8.1 thanks to WinToUSB 1.5, with a Kingston DT Ultimate G3 USB key (64Go, USB 3.0), see attached image 1. The installation worked well with WinToUSB.

The problem is, when I want to boot using the key, the key is successfully detected, but the lad screen stays indefinitely (image 2). I waited for nearly 45 minutes on that screen and nothing change. The activity LED of the USB key only worked for ~30sec at the begining.

I tried reinstalling. First with the normal Windows 8.1 option of WinToUSB, after with the 'Pro' version in WinToUSB, but nothing change, the same thing happens.

Where could the problem be?

Thank you in advance for your help

  USB Flash Drive with GPT partitioning
Posted by: GeJe - 07-29-2014, 08:28 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)


I need to install Windows on a USB Flash Drive with GPT partitioning as my computer, a late 2013 Mac Pro, doesn’t boot MBR external drives anymore (well, actually it can boot special Apple prepared MBR, as seen with the Flash Drive prepared by the Boot Camp Assistant).

How could I tell to WinToUSB NOT to reformat/change partition type and keep the GPT scheme?

Or maybe someone knowledgeable would like to see the special MBR bootable Flash Drive and try to figure out how to put a WinToUSB prepared install onto?

Thank you!

I have tried this very awesome application for making my USB Hard Disk a windows to go.

What I have here is an ASUS notebook with usb ports: "usb 2.0" and "usb 3.0", and Seagate External Hard Disk...Of course for fast usage I've use the "usb 3.0" for running this application with my Seagate to install windows 8.1 pro.

I restart my notebook and boot my Seagate first, It runs fast and awesome. But whenever I try to plug my Seagate to my notebook's usb port which is "usb 2.0", it loads and showing me a sad face and an error: INACCESIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE....And whenever I plug it to the usb 3.0 again, it loads perfect....What that means??? It only allows me to use "usb 3.0".

  Windows XP to USB?
Posted by: warmth - 07-25-2014, 02:10 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

Aside from the obvious, Windows XP support has officially ended, there is any other reason to not support XP? I'm making a system that will run a very old platform that only has XP support so I need it. Sad
