RMPrepUSB & RMPartUSB

#1 Post by I am Baas »

Partition and format your USB drive and make it bootable with RMPrepUSB.

- RMPrepUSB is a front end graphical user interface for the Windows command line program RMPartUSB.
- RMPartUSB is a command line Windows program that can access USB storage devices, e.g. flash memory (UFDs) or USB hard disks or USB card readers, and partition and format them to make them bootable.
- Supported Operating Systems that will run RMPrepUSB/RMPartUSB: Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, Windows 7. 32-bit and 64-bit versions are fully supported. WinPE v2 and v3 is also supported but the Copy OS Files option does not work and you will need to type in the folder path instead.
- Bootable Operating systems: You can make a USB pen that will boot to MS-DOS, FreeDOS, WinPE v1, v2 or v3, BartPE, XP, Vista, Win 7, linux (via grub4dos or syslinux boot loaders).
- WMI support is required if running under WinPE.

Portable - RMPartUSB and RMPrepUSB uses a vb6 DLL which is normally already present in Windows but is included in the download. The Installer version merely copies files and adds Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts, it includes an un-installer but you can just as easily simply delete the folder from your hard drive. These apps do NOT require .NET Framework support or WMI support.
Has the situation changed?

Not portable.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB And VBA Program Settings\Rmprepusb\Ext2

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB And VBA Program Settings\Rmprepusb\ImagePath

Thanks! :D
The mention about the portability, added after your post, is a shame...

RMPrepUSB is still in development with lots of changes over time:

The new home page that also has a pretty amazing list of tutorials and info: http://www.rmprepusb.com/

... but I couldn't find any indication the devs have tried to make it portable so I didn't retest.

They list a portable version now in the download section.

I have not tested it to check if it writes anything to the registry as I just found this thread when I was searching for info on this program (which I had never heard of before, but found while searching for alternatives to Rufus, which I am having problems with as it is killing my USB port every time I use it, until I reboot).

Their new address is https://rmprepusb.com/

This thread has gone for multiple year so I guess it is OK to necro threads when new info is available??? At least I hope so...

I hate for this to be my first post, but I figured that it might help someone, so I registered and posted.

Thanks for the info!

The project and downloads redirects to FOSSHub: https://www.fosshub.com/RMPrepUSB.html

I will move this topic to the submissions forum.
