  Support for Arsenal Virtual SCSI disk devices as destination disk
Posted by: nbsp - 07-26-2016, 06:49 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hello,

It would be nice to have support for Arsenal Virtual SCSI disk devices as destination disk. These are virtual disk devices created by the Arsenal Image Mounter tool. Currently these are not shown in the "Please select the destination disk:" combobox (probably because they are not using the USB bus).

This way it is not necessary to use an actual physical disk as destination, but a virtual one (a VHD image, for instance). These may be used within a virtual machine. Another usage example is with Easy2Boot, which can boot VHD files.

Regards,
John

  Memory_Management error
Posted by: cobarcore - 07-25-2016, 09:48 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (9)

Dear all,
I'm now to this great world of Windows Portable.

I've installed Win10 on a USB flash and when starting I get a blue screen with
":( Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. You can restart. If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT"

Tech data:
PC: Dell Inspiron 7359, i7, 13", USB3, Win10-64 (service tag 9ZDW682)
USB flash: Kingstone HyperX Savage 256 GB, 350/250 MB/s
Installed portable OS: Win 10-64 (installed in VHDX mode); tried also Win8-64 in VHDX and VHDX, same error.

I needed to set the Boot mode to Legacy (non UEFI) to be able to select the USB drive for boot (F12 at startup).
By the way, after setting Boot Legacy mode, when I'd like to boot again with the original OS, I need to change again Boot Mode settings to Only UEFI.

Any idea?

  Virtual Disk to WinToUSB
Posted by: AdminFromHell - 07-25-2016, 08:26 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I installed Win7 on a virtual machine (Oracle VirtualBox).
-I got a SanDisk Ultra 32 GB USB 3.0 (connected to USB 2.0 port during all of this)
-Win7 SP1

1. Created a dynamic vhd in Windows 7, created 2 partitions:
SYSTEM - FAT32 100 MB active and primary
and
BOOT(Windows) - NTFS 28 GB primary

2. Then i opened the vhd in VirtualBox and installed Win7 on it.

3. Started Win2USB and choose "Image File". I opened the vhd file I just installed Win7 to.

Now here is the problem. When I come to the "Please select the system partition" screen I can only choose one partition and not the two I created.
Why? What can I do to fix that? Or are vhd files not really supported?
I guess the 0x000.. error occurs because there is only one partition.

Would be great to be able to do a VM-machine to USB-machine conversion Smile

  Won´t accept preformatted partitions?
Posted by: Salerud - 07-25-2016, 01:47 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hi,

I´m having a hard time completing the installtion due to disk partition or space problem. I have used this "Kingston DT 100 G2 16 GB" (recognized as 14,6 GB) before installing Win10 but I can´t seem to succeed now.

First I tried with just using WinToUSB and letting it format the USB, then I get the disk space problem:
   

After that I tried manually formatting the USB into two different formations with disk part and after that MiniTool Partition Free into one primary NTFS partition with 14 GB of space and then another one with FAT32 with 987 MB of space. Then when I´m trying to use WinToUSB it doesn´t accept my partitions and want to format them:

How its formatted:
   

and
   

The "error":
   

What I´m a doing wrong?! :S

Best regards,
Eric

Star Windows 10 - Using blu-ray disc instead of usb-thumb drive?
Posted by: SAM - 07-22-2016, 11:30 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (3)

Hello,

I want to create a Windows 10 Pro. 64bit boot medium with WinToUSB. Then I want to live-boot Windows 10 and officially activate it. (hardware ID)


* Is it possible to use a Blu-ray disc (R / RW) instead of a usb thumb drive?

* If it's not possible with WinToUSB, could I just use the Windows 10 iso file provided by Microsoft and burn it onto my blu-ray with e.g. Nero? Would this work to boot Windows 10 and officially activate Windows 10 for my computer (hardware)?


Yours,
SAM

  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.

Thanks,

Ron

  USB functionality during WinPE cloning
Posted by: videoclarity - 06-28-2016, 06:54 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (25)

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?

BTW:
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?

Thanks!
