  2. Windows Server 2016 does not seem to be supported by the Multiboot tool, I have tried to add the ISO under Windows ISO’s but it reports the error ‘This doesn’t seem to be valid source! Either or all of \sources\boot.wim, \bootmgr\boot\, \boot\BCD are missing, or source is not supported.

    RETRY to select another source or CANCEL to return to the main menu.

  3. This doesn’t seem to be valid source! Either or all of \sources\boot.wim, \bootmgr\boot\, \boot\BCD are missing, or source is not supported.same error while uploading the windows 7 and the windows 8 iso file

    • It’s not about the ISO, it’s about the free space on the USB drive and how fragmented it is. Does task manager shows WinContig running? Does the flash drive led blink showing activity?
      What happens if you run WinContig manually from the tools folder on that ISO?

  4. I am facing a problem when adding my Acronis True Image 2017 PE version .iso, it seems to boot up correctly but soon after it reboots again itself without showing the main ATI screen. I put this iso file in “Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 … based ISO” box. My other Windows ISOs (Windows 10 installation ISO e.g) booted up correctly.

    • Can anyone advise which directory or which option to put the Adonis True Image PE ISO file? Need any editing of files?

  5. Hello, I have used this programme for long, and now switched to the new version. May I know if we still need to rebuild the whole USB stick after each installation of windows 2003 as I know for previous versions, I need to copy some files again…. but seems this prompt has disappeared now in the site……

  6. I am trying to set up a USB with Winsetupfromusb. I follows all instructions and tutorials, but I get an error message shortly after hitting GO:
    Could not prepare NT6 boot files. Then it aborts.
    Any ideas?

    • Most likely program was extracted in folder with insufficient rights, or another program is messing around.
      You could always take a look at the log box and find clues.
