  2. Is there a tutorial or thread that will resolve the error “waiting USB disks to initalize”? I get this every time and followed these instructions over and over. Can someone please point me to the right place? Thank you

    • Try using USB 2.0 port and/or adjust usb port settings in bios.
      Windows is not seeing the usb disk and this is most likely the reason.

      • I’ve tried every usb port on the machine. And I see nothing in the bios about usb port settings. Any other tricks?

        • What is the exact model of the usb disk/stick?
          What is the exact model of the machine you are booting it on?
          What Windows version?

  3. It’s a 4GB Sandisk drive. I’ve also tried a SONY 4GB Drive. The PC is a Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop Core 2 Duo 2.93GHz CPU 4GB RAM 250GB HDD. I am attempting to install Windows 7.

    • Have you added usb/chipset drivers to the source? Is it vanilla Win7?
      I have a few optiplex 780 I can test on tomorrow, bear with me.

    • Just tested USB stick SanDisk Extreme 32 GB, prepared with 1.6 beta1 in Fat32 and Win7, on Optiplex 780 and everything worked just fine.

        • Try vanilla source and you will find out.
          You should always first test vanilla sources when having similar issues.

  4. this works perfectly for USB 2.0 devices, but when using USB3.0 it does not work, is their a solution for USB3 support

    • Buddy, I cannot understand what exactly you need to do and what is failing for you, apart from the issue with QEMU and USB 3.0 stick, which I have no clue how to resolve apart from updating QEMU which is quite tricky process, given how unstable QEMU could be on Windows platforms and the time spent in finding version which supports most of the sources tested. So consider having working QEMU as a bonus.

      Now, what exactly are you booting on USB 3.0 and is failing for you (Windows 7/8/10, XP, Linux or what?) and on what hardware is it failing?
      What exactly is failing? What is the error message?

      Do you think one line questions like “this works perfectly for USB 2.0 devices, but when using USB3.0 it does not work” bring any useful information so you can be helped?
