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

  Screen Resolution
Posted by: wharris128 - 05-13-2016, 06:14 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (11)

I have created the USB Boot disk with Windows 10. It starts booting then comes up with error about needing to change the screen resolution. It says out of Range Signal cannot display this video mode. Change computer display input to 1680x1050. Is there a way to adjust the resolution of the build?

Thank you,

  Win10 won't boot on newer computers
Posted by: Trozza - 05-02-2016, 06:15 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (10)

I installed windows 10 on a portable hard drive with WinToUSB using the Bios/UEFI method. It worked on my older PC (about 8 years old), and on my works old laptop (no idea how old). I tried it on my wife's new laptop (roughly 3 months old), it wouldn't boot, it just goes to a blank/black screen. My work gave me a new HP zbook mobile workstation to replace my old laptop, and it too won't boot from the portable hard drive. After I select the USB hdd as the boot drive, it just goes to a black screen. After a few minutes i try hitting a few keys on the keyboard and it just starts beeping at me. I don't get any windows boot logos or warnings. I take it back to my older PC and it boots fine.

I had a look inside bios (luckily they didn't lock it down) and I can see that it's setup to boot in legacy mode and not UEFI. However, just to try a few different options,

  • I setup the hard drive to boot as UEFI and ran it through the process again. When I select the USB hard drive on my laptop, it just ignores it and goes to the next bootable option and starts booting up the internal hard drive.
  • I setup the hard drive to boot in legacy/BIOS mode and ran it through the process again. When I select the USB hard drive on my laptop, I just get the same blank/black screen as before.

I'm at a loss as to what to do, as it doesn't provide me with any error messages.

Any ideas on what I can test?

  Virus WHY?
Posted by: Lien1454 - 04-27-2016, 02:41 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (6)


I downloaded WinToUSB_Setup.exe from this web site from clicking the FREE link to try it.
I installed it and then went to make a Windows 8.1 Pro pen stick. I left it and come back to see the following message...

26.04.2016 16.17.15;Detected object (process memory) was deleted.;c:\program files\wintousb\bin\wintousb.exe;c:\program files\wintousb\bin\wintousb.exe;PDM:Trojan.Win32.Generic;Other malware;04/26/2016 16:17:15

Kaspersky then did a roll back of infected files and prompted a reboot.
Then it performed a full scan.

So has your setup file been exploited?

  error cloning windows 7 starter
Posted by: feeldumb - 04-19-2016, 12:30 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (18)

When I tried to use WinToUSB version 2.9 build apr 6, 2016 to clone my windows 7 starter laptop to a new 32GB USB I get this error:

Disk or partition space is insufficient.(0x000000C2091E0000)

When I say clone, it shows:
Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Starter (x86)
Version: 6.1.7601 Service pack 1 build 7601
System Partition: C:, NTFS, Used 25.02GB, Capacity 80.0 GB
Boot Partition: C:, NTFS, Used 25.02GB, Capacity 80.0 GB
Bios Mode: Legacy BIOS

hit next, get select destination disk
Disk1: JetflashTranscend32GB

Which it formats just fine

Then I get select system and boot partition.
It shows
Disk 1 WinToUSB (FSmile
29.42G 29.41G

for both.

I wondered if those were the sizes, but when I removed software from my system to make my boot disk smaller, it showed no change. My C drive now shows 25GB used, which is a lot smaller that the first time I tried this.
But still same error.


When I try this with my 8GB USB drive, it just says insufficient space, without formatting my USB.

It did create a system from the windows 7 starter iso file I have, but when I boot from that, the screen resolution is not adjustable, it cannot find my wifi (so no net), and none of the troubleshooters appear to work.

I have pared my system disk down to 25GB used.

I wish WinToUSB would tell me how big a USB I need. More useful than just what you got is not enough.

Help, please!

Posted by: imanc - 04-18-2016, 05:24 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

I'm a ne forum user, hello everyone.
I used the software wintousb to prepare a 32gb usb flash drive with Windows 10 (VHDX mode), all goes well on the first boot until the first wizard of choosing date, time and other options: a message error appear saying "Windows could not complete the installation" and reboots.

Can you help me?

Thank you,
