WintoUSB does not work at all for me
#1
Hello specialists

Probably someone is here to help me. I'm writing from Germany.
I was very excited when I heard about WintoUSB. A tool which should solve my problem.
But I tried to do this with my HP Elitebook 820 Notebook without success.

My goal is to clone my existing installed Windows 7 Enterprise to a 128 GB USB Stick.
Everything seems to be working, but when the SW comes to cloning, I always get the error message " Specified disk not found " !!!
Diskpart does not recognize my USB Stick.
I searched in the Web and found, that there is a problem with USB 3 ports.
First question Why ??? Is WintoUSB not handling USB 3 correctly and why not ? Windows does. And the stick is recognized before cloning !!!
There was a solution to implement a USB 3 driver in the Windows PE, but when I followed the instruction steps, I always get the message, that I can't have access to the image !!! Even I started cmd as administrator !!! I also don't know what driver.
Why is WintoUSB so complicated ?

There's a second question. After WintoUSB formatted my USB stick I have the choice to chose the boot and the system partition on the USB Stick.
The information which shows up, is, that both partitions have the same capacity. That can't by right, can't it? Another issue?

I downloaded WintoUSB 3.2 and I know, that to clone Windows Enterprise I will need the Full version.
I really would like to buy it, if somebody could explain me how to clone my Windows to the USB Sticks in a way having no issues.
Otherwise it's wasting money.

I would appreciate, if someone could help me. It would be perfect, if I have my Win 7 on a Boot USB Stick

Regards from Germany

Please insert your usb drive to a USB 2.0 port and try again.

Thanks for this advice, but how should I do this?
My HP Elite Book 820 G3 has just 2 USB 3.0 ports !!
Who is using USB 2.0 ports in our time ???????? So WintoUSB is not up to date ??? Using old and slow USB 2.0??
Transferring aprox. 80GB via USB 2.0 is a nightmare.
So does it mean, that I can forget WintoUSB?ß It's a pity. Or any other recommendations?

I'm sorry, Windows 7 does not have built-in USB 3.0 support, so Windows 7 will have to be booted from a USB 2.0 port. We recommend using Windows 10/8 to create portable Windows, because Windows 10/8 To Go have better compatibility.

Hi
What do you mean with not having USB 3.0 support ??? Don't understand it.
My Windows 7 works fine with my USB 3.0 Sticks or SSD's. USB 3.0 driver is working correctly.
Unfortunately my company is still using Windows 7 so I can't update to Windows 8 or 10.
Ok finally I see, that WintoUSB is not the magic SW specially with Windows 7.
Nevertheless, thanks everybody for the (frustrating) answers.

I'm sorry, WinToUSB currently only supports Windows built-in USB drive, it does not support third-party USB drivers.
