  1. I love this tool!! been using it from the starting and have seen it grow over the years.. just a single suggestion can you please make it look more attractive. I know its not a functionality issue but there are several tools out there that look somewhat more attractive. Just a suggestion.

    • Thanks for the feedback.
      To be honest, changing the gui requites quite a lot of rewriting, time which I don’t have. The little spare time I’d rather spend on fixing bugs and adding new features when possible.

  2. when I try to load windows 10 iso made from Microsoft MediaCreationToolx64, I get the following error “this doesn’t seem to be a valid source! either or all of \sources\boot.wim, \bootmgr\boot\, \boot\bcd are missing, or source is not supported”
    the log file:

    • D:\Softwares\Windows 10 PRO x86+x64.iso

      Dual ISOs x32 and x64 made by this tool are not yet supported and won’t be soon, because Microsoft changed default locations and the first time when they use such structure, it would require serious rewrite to have them supported.
      Single ISOs should work, as long as boot.wim is in \sources folder.

      Alternatively, this ISO could be placed using the previous versions of the program, read this comment for details.
      And please do NOT dump raw contents of the log file directly in the comments, upload the file somewhere or use pastebin.com.

  3. WinSetupFromUSB does not support the flash drive more than 32GB – error???- I am unable to use the 64GB flash drive to make a multiple OS on a bootable single drive

  4. Can I Know how to remove the Entry in Bootmenu for which the iso is removed or moved. like i added windows 10 and removed windows 8.1 from my usb but it is still showing windows 8.1 also…thank you

    • You can edit Windows bcd menus with the included BootIce or the free VisualBCD- edit \boot\bcd for BIOS boot and \efi\microsoft\boot\bcd for EFI boot.

  5. A very helpful tool, thank you for providing it for free. I’ve played around with it the last couple of days. I didn’t find an option though to remove an ISO file that I installed to my USB drive using WinSetupFromUSB. Can anybody help me?

    • Each iso is added in a different way, it’s hard, if possible at all to automate the process of roving them.
      If you go through the comments, I’ve posted many examples qhat and how to be removed for the various types of sources.

  6. Man I feel stupid. I booted up on the USB drive and couldn’t figure out how to proceed to install my Windows XP.

  7. I tried to use 20 images(xp,7,8,10) and differnt flash drives(8, 16, Gb with format ntfs and fat32) not one of them work. I used winsetupformusb 1.5-16b x64 vers.
    The same error in log: Func _GetVistaKickerIsoSize returned an error: 2? program said “This doen’t seem to valid source!…”
    My system is windows 7 x64
