WinSetupFromUSB Review

Software which prepares multi-boot USB flash drives
A review of WinSetupFromUSB by Felix Cheng

WinSetupFromUSB is a formatting utility which provides you the option to configure any USB storage device to act as a boot disk for Windows XP, Windows 7/8, UNIX, Linux, etc. without access to a CD or DVD drive.

The program offers nothing too fancy but its several configuration options perfect for those wishing to install a new operating system or even a second operating system like Ubuntu Linux or Mint. All you have to do is obtain an ISO copy of the distribution you wold like and to format the USB media from WinSetupFromUSB's interface.

The options available to the end user here are modifying the boot.ini file and to add extras such as BartPE, UBCD4Win or GParted.

Once you've added the ISO and selected the drive to be formatted, just hit the start button.

WinSetupFromUSB features and highlights:
  • Multiple sets of Windows setup files- XP, 2000, 2003, Vista, WIndows 7, Server 2008, Windows 8, Server 2012, both 32 and 64 bit versions are supported
