WinToFlash easily transfers your Windows XP - 10 setup CD, DVD, or ISO image to a USB device. Although possible via other means, this solves the problem of annoying command-line arguments when reinstalling Windows on a device without an optical drive.

Additionally, as some flash devices have faster read times than optical drives, this can result in a faster Windows setup.

Interesting, read and accept the license agreement before it will continue, but the license comes up in a foreign language, probably Russian! Oh well, it seems to start up all the same, I'll give it a try sometime.

Used this to put XP on my netbook and it worked perfectly, very handy little app.

Can I make portable installer for win7 too?

Just tried this using a microSD card in a SD card adapter. Works great!

Who wants to go through the hassle of checking your list and removing everything except what they want? This is crappy software.

Ahem 2011-01-25 16:56

@gsm Perhaps you could ask a grown-up to do it for you.

hugh_h 2011-01-26 19:48

I'm obviously confused. All I get is dialog boxes full of
>
whether I accept the EULA or not.

freakazoid 2011-01-26 22:02

@gms9810 - Removing the language files is not necessary at all, but helps if you want to bring down the filesize.

Is there any equivalent software that does the same thing for Windows? This program use to be cool and simple, but now it's ad-supported and have to accept a bunch of EULAS and attempts to call home all the time. Very annoying. I know Windows setup can be made into USB boot drive manually, but you know just sometimes I am lazy.

V0.7.0018 Beta

DO NOT DOWNLOAD! this app. has become a virus!

not only does the installer install adware, but the actual program is not integrated with ads .. i tested in my VM and ESET kept alerting me it was blocking ads from the internet..

i would highly recommend staying away from this crapware... unless you want an ads infestation..

v0.7.0051 Beta

webfork 2013-03-16 15:17

Magibon: The 0.7.0054 is listed as adware by softpedia. Adding a note to the entry.

v0.7.0051 Beta

Magibon 2013-08-01 12:05

thanks webfork, i just downloaded the latest 0.8.0000 beta and it's not that bad now.. not sure if it's my AntiVirus, hosts file or what.. but there doesn't seem to be so many Ads. Only 1 during the initial extraction to download the free serial.

if someone else would like to verify.
