  Ver 3.1 Error "Disk type cannot be identified.(0x0578003802FD0000)"
Posted by: AKPhotographer - 07-15-2016, 05:11 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I'm on a Windows 10 computer, using the latest version of WinToUSB, and every time I go to select my external hard disk drive, the error message "Disk type cannot be identified.(0x0578003802FD0000)" pops up. I have tried searching the Internet and cannot find anyone else with this problem.

Side note: I just used this hard drive to install the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional from an ISO image onto my hard drive, accidentally selecting "Windows 7 Home Premium" and unknowingly running everything through USB 3.0 ports. Needless to say my first run didn't work. I'm now going to install the 32 bit version (just to be safe) of Windows 7 Professional from an ISO image, however WinToUSB won't even identify my hard drive.

  New ext drive not seen for destination drive
Posted by: Ronea2 - 06-29-2016, 12:18 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I'm attempting to to use a Windows 8.1 machine to create a Windows 7 boot drive on a new Western Digital  1tb external hard drive.  While using Wintousb, all goes well until i get to the screen where I should select my destination drive.  At that point, my external hard drive does not show up - even though I can see it in explorer.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

  USB functionality during WinPE cloning
Posted by: videoclarity - 06-28-2016, 06:54 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (3)

I am trying to clone the current operating system which is Windows 7, to USB and will get stuck as soon as the PC has been restarted and WinPE has loaded to start the clone process. Then, an Error message pops up and reads "Specified disk not found. (0x0005003501480000)"
My keyboard and mouse are no longer functioning either. The USB flash drive and keyboard/mouse are both plugged into USB 2.0 ports.

I also came across this situation with USB ports not functioning when trying to install Windows 7. And after an hour of searching online, basically I had to create a Windows 7 Installation image with xHCI drivers included, according to Intel. This was all explained in a technical white paper addressing EHCI Removal from 6th Generation Intel Core Processor Family PCH which explains why we aren't able to use a keyboard and mouse, and any devices plugged into any USB ports when booting with a Windows 7 install cd, Windows Repair utility.

I attached a copy of the white paper released by Intel to help give a better understanding because I'm not doing a good job of explaining my problem here. Hopefully it will help.

Is there a way to include USB drivers to the WinPE image building process in wintousb?  

Any help with this is appreciated! I know I left out alot of information so please ask away.

  Win2USB for Win10 upgrades?
Posted by: win2usbtest - 06-24-2016, 05:34 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hi all,

as you all know Microsoft free upgrade from Win7 to Win10 ends end of July.
As I have a couple of Win7 Pro machines which are all deployed by an image-base installation tool. Worked fine for Win7, I just had to enter the license key after imaging was done. Smile
Now I am thinking of upgrading these machines to Win10. Unfortunately MS now bundles the Win10 license with the hardware. So the only way to activate the Win10 license from every Win7 PC is to perform the manual upgrade to Win10. Obviously for approx 60 machines this will take ages!  Angry

So I was thinking if it is possible to boot Win10 with Win2USB, register the machine with the assigned Win7 license key and shut it down. If I decide later to use Win10 I can deploy from image and all machines are already registered.

Is this a possible way? And would Win2USB work in this way?

I installed Win2USB on a 128GB USB Flash device based on the Win10 Pro ISO file. It started booting, "preparing" and finally showd up my installed Win7 Pro...
Any ideas?

  3.1 Install problem
Posted by: dale - 06-14-2016, 09:34 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (6)

I believe I encountered an installation problem on Windows 10 Professional. I downloaded and installed the free version of WinToUSB 3.0. When I ran the program I was prompted to install the update to version 3.1, which I installed. The new installation prompted an uninstall of version 3.0 before installing 3.1. The installation appeared to complete successfully. After the software completed installing Windows 10 on a USB drive, the software closed. I went to start the software again by clicking on the icon in the All Programs menu. It said the software was no longer installed and asked if I wanted to remove the icon, so I deleted it. I then looked for an icon to open the software and was unable to locate anything other than the uninstall and WinToUSB on the Web. The 3.1 installation does not properly replace the icon from version 3.0. I have not yet had the opportunity to see if I can recreate the problem.

  Make USB-Stick non persistant
Posted by: qooqoo - 06-07-2016, 07:38 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hello good guys, and thanks for your awesome product.

I did manage to create a bootable windows7 which would fit my needs, but I have the problem that the changes are always written to the VHD. Is there any chance to make the stick non-persistant, so that he stick will reset everything to default values on each boot?

Many thanks in advance

  WinToUSB_Setup.exe - Virus detected?
Posted by: citizenc - 06-07-2016, 10:27 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


I went to the WinToUSB website and downloaded the free edition. However, I wasn't able to even run the program because Windows Defender immediately deleted it, saying it was infected with a virus. ("Trojan:Win32/Maltule.C!cl")

Download URL was http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/downloads/WinToUSB_Setup.exe

Bug Legacy Greyed out Sandisk Extreme 64GB
Posted by: aswinrajan - 06-06-2016, 05:41 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

hi team - i'd purchased the SanDisk 64 GB Extreme Pro since it was listed as a good option for Windows to Go

Oddly I don't have the legacy install option and have only VHD and VHDX. I have tried multiple Windows 10 ISOs (PRO and Enterprise) all with the same result.

I tried using another SandDisk Extreme Pro but this time 32GB and I have the Legacy option.

I really need the legacy mode. I'm using WinToUSB v3.0 , what could be the issue / work around? (also when I select my 64GB SanDisk, it warns me of performance issues and reformats! the 32GB does no such thing)

Wink Basic Questions on Installing Windows 7
Posted by: Tsundere-chan - 05-21-2016, 07:32 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (15)

Hello all Big Grin ,
I have some simple questions to which i cannot find answers anywhere else.

My goal is to install any version of windows 7 on a usb drive or external hdd.
From what I understand win7 x64 ultimate w/ SP1 seems to be the safest way since it has more drivers. Please let me know if I'm wrong. My motherboard(x64) seems to be uefi-based with legacy-boot support available, but SATA/AHCI options are unavailable. The internal hdd is eMMc.

How exactly should I format/partion/scheme the external hdd?

Some tutorials say that system and boot partitions can be on the same partition with both being NTFS (4028kb cluster?). But this link says otherwise: http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/faq/en_US/How-to-use-WinToUSB-ISO-To-USB.html
GPT or MBR? VHD or Legacy?

Any suggestions for which tool I should use for partitioning?

Thankyou Big Grin
