  1. Windows 7 32bit save iso with MBR Mode , Windows 64bit with MBR-UEFI mode, and now Windows 8.1 Save iso with ESD. ESD is New system compress for small ISO.

    • I think you are confusing and mixing lots of things. Take a look here for some details.

      Generally speaking, all Windows 32/64 bits sources are supported, unless they are heavily modified from original images. You could just try whatever you need to add, it’s matter of 5-10 minutes…

  2. Hi, all, thanks for this useful program. I have just one little question: How can i edit list of OS, that appears after i choose installs (it named Windows boot manager), listed in winsetup.lst? I think it’s a one of configfiles in /boot folder but which of them? and how can i edit it? I really dont like duplicate options in it =(

    • You could use BootIce (included) or VisualBCD editor and edit bcd store in \boot and \efi\microsoft\boot

  3. I put Windows 8.1 x64, Acronis True Image, and Windows 7 SP1 x64. Windows 8.1 and Acronis boots up and works fine except for Windows 7 I get a error message that keeps repeating every few seconds saying “Waiting for USB disk to initalize please wait” then after a while it says “Please reinsert the USB disk. USB disk is not available. Please unplug it,wait 5 seconds, and plug it back in. If you are using USB 3.0 disk try using USB 2.0 port.” Well my PC doesn’t have USB 3.0 ad nothing wrong with my USB stick since all others work.

  4. Please help, i installed windows 7 from my usb using this program everything is great, but now, i need to make my usb normal again, so i can use it for saving other files. How to do it?

    • There is nothing special with the USB disk now, it’s just bootable. You can continue using it as a storage, or if you need more space just format it, from explorer, BootIce, RMPrepUSB etc.
