    • Quite likely yes, with some manual intervention. Depends what’s in these ISOs and whether the recovery program expects DVD or not.
      Can you open root and sources folder in each of the ISOs in Explorer if you are in Windows 10 or in 7-zip if not amd post screenshots to see what’s in these?

    • with my experience NO . I already the .iso file and tried to make a bootable usb and it would not. This program is useless as it does nothing but give ridiculous errors. There is not even any explanation as to how to use it. It has 5 choices below the interface with no explanation of what one is supposed to do with them. Does one check it only? or do you enter if anything in the bigger place to fill in?
      and what after that

    • From my experience NO. I tried it with an already i had .iso file and it would not work but just give ridiculous uncalled for error. Also there is not instruction
      as how to use it . There are 5 boxes below and what are they supposed to mean? And does one just check the box or fill something in the apparent blank
      space also and then what.

      • You don’t have to do anything buddy, it’s all mystery, just skip this site and softwaren if it upsets you that much and feel it’s all useless and carry on.

  1. Скажите пожалуйста , а как WinSetupFromUSB разбивает iso на две части? После записи образа windows 10.iso , на флешке появились два файла (windows 10.iso.001 и windows 10.iso.002) , точнее сказать какой программой?

    • Take a look in program directory, maybe tools folder, there is a program for this, I don’t recall the name, FileSplit or something like this. I am away from the PC to check for you.

    • Hiren’s BCD has never been supported, it may or may not work, also depending on its version.

      Which Windows version doesn’t boot and where exactly it gets stuck?

      Using which options the above two source were added?

  2. I can’t boot & add WinPE 10&8_Sergei_Strelec x86_x64_2021.01.05 latest version 2021. Please help me..?

    Or please code in menu.lis add WinPE 10&8_Sergei_Strelec x86_x64_2021.01.05 latest version 2021 show programs in winPE ?

  3. I don’t have the “Auto-detect and use F6 SATA/RAID/SCSI Driver” option. I can choose only between “First part….” and “Second part…”.
    How do i activate the options “Auto-detect…” and “Auto-detec… + Firadisk” in the menu?
    My image is Windows XP Professional.

    My problem is that i always get the 0x000007B error and changing the ntdetect.com file doesn’t change it.

  4. I have a problem. It won’t boot on internal disk where the Operating system is installed. It says “Reboot and Select Proper Device.

    menu.lst

    title Windows NT6 (Vista/7 and above) Setup
    map –unhook
    map –unmap=0:0xff && map –rehook
    savedefault +1
    ls /shifthd.bat > nul || find –set-root –devices=hf /shifthd.bat
    /shifthd.bat
    if “%RDSK%”==”” pause Fatal error while swapping hard disk order, cannot continue! && configfile /menu.lst
    root (hd%RDSK%,0)
    chainloader /BOOTMGR

    title Second part/continue NT6 Setup (Boot first internal disk)
    map –unhook
    map –unmap=0:0xff && map –rehook
    savedefault
    ls /shifthd.bat > nul || find –set-root –devices=hf /shifthd.bat
    /shifthd.bat
    if “%RDSK%”==”” pause Fatal error while swapping hard disk order, cannot continue! && configfile /menu.lst
    pause –wait=1 Booting MBR on hd0 …
    chainloader (hd0)+1

      • There’s a menu where it says “boot on hard drives operating system” but I can’t make it work to boot on the existing OS installed on the hard drive.

        • Are you using “boot first internal disk” menu entry and it’s not working?
          If not, what does the menu say exactly, word by word?
          Is that happening when you boot from USB or from the internal disk?

  5. Merci pour votre réponse concernant la suppression de la ligne de menu pour un iso supprimé dans winsetup, j’ouvre Bootice puis quel onglet ? Se serait sympa si vous pouvez me détailler la suite

  6. hi. im using your software to format computers. there is an issue with me. the windows 10 ISO’s are getting updated every month. so i am being have to update them always. so im doing these: delete the iso in winsetup folder, copy new iso with winsetupfromusb, then edit BCDs, then edit winsetup list. is there a way to update the ISO’s without deleting and editing the lines? it would be perfect.

    • For minor version updates just replace the old ISO with the new one using same file name, juat the ISO. Can also edit BCD to change name if needed.

      • thanks for your reply. will i need to replace boot wim too? is different ISO’s bcd settings different? do i need to edit BCD for the stuffs other than the displayed name? thanks again.

        • Replace ISO only, bcd editing of menu name only is optional, only if you put something like version in it, otherwise no need to.
          Do not edit or replace boot.wim or any other files.
