WinToUSB does not install Windows 7 on USB hardDrive
#1
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

Yes it looks to work with the beta version. I did not take it since the change log di not appear to apply to my need, but it probably does more than described. Anyhow thanks for this tool that seems to be so easy to use.
