Downloads

Here you can download WinSetupFromUSB and updates of the tools included.

Please do not hotlink files, use this page if you want to post a link to the program. If you need to link to a specific version, you could use version number like this:

Note: A few antivirus programs keep detecting a couple of the included files as viruses. This is false positive. These vendors were informed numerous times and the serious companies such as DrWeb and Kaspersky, update their signatures to remove the false detection within a few hours after being informed. Others, such as McAfee, despite all the efforts and contacts, don’t do anything to update their signatures. For a few unknown ones, which use third party signatures, there is no way to contact them or they simply don’t respond. This program will never knowingly distribute any kind of malware.

  1. There is a huge number of software for making bootable USB flash drives but WinSetupFromUSB is by far the most complete and feature rich of all of them. This tool aims for professional use. I have been using it for a few years and never came across with anything similar. This tool covers almost every aspect of the task it is designed for. It is my secret weapon for multiboot UEFI bootable USB flash drives. Congratulations for the development team!!! Existe una gran cantidad de software para crear memorias usb booteables pero WinSetupFromUSB es por mucho el más completo y lleno de características de todos ellos.Esta herramienta está enfocada en un uso profesional. La he utilizado por algunos años y nunca he encontrado nada similar. Esta herramienta cubre casi cada aspecto de la tarea para la cual fue diseñada. Es mi arma secreta para crear memorias booteables con arranque múltiple UEFI. Felicinaciones al equipo de desarrollo!!!

  2. Hi,

    I am trying to ‘install’ a Rescue And Recovery set of 4 ISOs for a Lenovo ThinkPad, rather than have to change the 4 DVDs repeatedly.

    I have downloaded the most current version of WinSetupFromUSB and I have created the first, boot, ISO on a 32GB Kingston Stick.

    Following the instructions above for multiple ISOs, I run the program again, selecting the same stick, not checking for formatting, and then selecting the second of four ISOs. I then receive the following message —

    This doesn’t seem to be valid source!
    Either \bootmgr or \BOOT\BCD are missing, or source is not supported.

    There is a boot manager only in the first ISO which has already been ‘loaded’ on to the bootable stick. None of the other three ISOs have a boot manager.

    Is it not possible to ‘put’ all of the ISOs on the stick?

    TIA

    • What you need to do is to check the contents of the other 3 ISOs and figure out what the installer program will be looking for, then extract their contents to the USB drive so that installer can find those contents. In other words, open the second ISO, make sure that if you copy it as it is there will be no overlapping files and folders on the USB disk, then copy everything as it is to the root of the USB disk. The do the same with the other 2.
      If there are overlapping files and folders then best I can think of is to manually copy the ISO files somewhere on the USB disk, then manually “mount” them as virtual DVDs using imdisk which is already installed.

      Alternatively, again if there are no overlapping files and folders in all ISOs, then inject the contents of the 2nd, 3rd and the 4th ISO in the first ISO and rebuild the USB disk with that new large ISO.

  3. Esta ferramente sinceramente é a melhor não tem pra minguem quem falar que tem um tal de AB Multiboot que é melhor não intende de nada ferramenta gratuita onda todos podem baixar sem nenhum custo, e sem pegadinha de esconder senha para fazer o pessoal de trocha esse é o melhor e pronto

  4. For two linux distros WinSetupFromUSB get stuck on defragmenting and i had for force close it. The first was Kubuntu 20 and the second was Fedora KDE 32. I don’t know why.

    • Likely WinContig was still defragmenting in the background. Either let it run, or if that’s taking too long use faster USB stick with faster write access for small files, that’s where the main difference is between good and bad quality sticks.
      Alternatively, can avoid fragmentation altogether by putting largest ISO files first, before any other sources and use large enough USB disk which will more likely have enough contiguous free space.

      • I let let it run long enough. I am using WinSetupFromUSB often so i know what time it usually take to defragment. This was not normal.

        • Nothing much I can say, WinContig is used internally to defragment. Either avoid fragmentation altogether, or run WinContig manually and see if it gets stuck.
          If you were using same stick many times, it might have developed faulty sectors and WinContig might be getting stuck when accessing some of them, hard to know untill you rule out faulty stick by using another, confirmed good and quick one.

  5. Hi, thanks for your tool, it’s been really useful for years. I’m trying to create an USB with Windows 10 20H2 ISOs but it’s not working. Do we have to wait for an update?

    • LoLo, I downloaded Windows 10-20H2 from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO (using Windows XP or Linux so we get the iso, not the “media creation tool”.) Then I used WinSetUpFromUSB to add it to the USB drive. It works fine. Just boot from the USB, select “Windows 7/8/10…” from the menu, and then select the menu name specified when you ran WinSetUpFromUSB.

      (If you downloaded the iso from another source, it may be defective. And, if you downloaded the “media creation tool”, you can’t use that file with WinSetUpFromUSB, but you can use it to create a bootable USB with W10 on it, as an alternative to WinSetUp.)

    • i only asked this question to ensure if this program will do so because other flash tools like rufus when its successful, and when i boot the flash setup on my older pc, it bluescreens.

      • Windows 2000 should be supported, but I haven’t tested it for ages, you can give it a try.
        Windows 95/98- no, unless added as Linux/Other ISO and grub4dos entries manually changed to load Windows 95/98. What exactly needs to be changed I don’t remember, google probably can help if you search for grub4dos windows 98

        • ok, thanks! i will give Windows 2000 a try. since i couldn’t find any tutorials of how i can flash Windows 95, 98 on USB.

          • Bear in mind you need to be testing on hardware or VM supported by Windows 2000, which could be challenge to find nowadays.

        • Thanks again for including the “Test in QEMU” feature, i managed to discover the cause of the BSoD.
          i tested Windows 2000 using the feature and it worked, but when i tested it on REAL hardware this time, it suddenly showed a blue screen of death with the stop code:

          INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.

          do i need to format the drive to FAT?
          because i formatted it to NTFS when it partitioned for the setup to be imported.

          • i’m trying to install Windows 2000 on my old PC that supports windows up to 8.1. i use it for experimenting and studying OSes.

            • Inaccessible boot device is usually SATA/AHCI drivers, Windows doesn’t have the needed driver to continue the boot process and loses connectivity to the disk.

              Try switching disk mode to IDE/compatible.
              Alternatively, if you can find SATA/AHCI driver for Windows 2000, either rebuild the source using the advanced option to provide F6 drivers, or just integrate it in the source and rebuild the disk.

              FAT32 should be slightly faster on Windows 2000 setup, NTFS is faster on XP.
              Both should work just fine.

              Test I’ve done some time ago:

              https://msfn.org/board/topic/125116-fat16-vs-fat32-vs-ntfs-speed-on-usb-stick/

              • okay! thank you for the help and guide, maybe the problem might be solved if i try and download a new copy of the Windows 2000 setup. otherwise, i do have a pre-existing Windows on my old PC, maybe i can boot it up and find drivers for SATA AHCI HDDs. i’m using a Biostar N68S Motherboard which has an AMD Sempron 145 Processor.
