    • It’s not about the windows version or USB stick used, it’s about corrupt ISO file while 7-zip is extracting the boot files from the ISO to the local disk, no matter what windows version is that ISO.
      Again- please start with freshly downloaded _stock_ windows ISO with confirmed md5/sha checksums.

  1. I am facing the issue “waiting usb disk to initialize please wait” and i have tried all usb ports but the very same result 🙁

    when i try windows 10, it works fine, but on windows 7 i face this issue 🙁

    please help me how can i solve this issue?

    following page, i found some solution but it uses unknown software that i don’t want to use 🙁

    any help please?

    • Windows 7 does not have built in USB 3 drivers, Windows 10 does, that’s Windows limitation.
      You will either have to integrate/slipstream the appropriate drivers in your source, or try the advanced option in the program which lets you provide such, or use USB 2.0 port/hardware is possible. Some BIOS-es might also have related option.

      • i am sorry but please read my post again, it’s nothing to do with usb 3 drivers as i have tried all ports (usb 3 and usb 2). on usb 2 ports it also shows the same error :(. And i see the problem doesn’t occurs on all system, only few and mainly on laptops :(. any suggestion/help?

        • I don’t have other answer for you buddy, your previous post does not mention that you tried other ports etc.
          That message means that the USB disk is not yet visible to Windows, in all cases due to lack of USB drivers and if Windows PE does not see the USB disk, setup surely can’t continue. Try slipstreaming some of the common USB drivers in the source and test.

        • Win7 does not have modern drivers for the latest usb 2 and 3 chipsets. If you add usb 3 drivers it will also add drivers for new usb 2 chipsets too.

  2. The system is operating correctly. Thank you for that. But, when I click somewhere in the menu and restart the computer, the menu remains in the same place. For example, menu> hiren bootcd
    –restart computer–
    again into hiren boot cd.
    I can’t go back to the main menu. I need to connect it to another computer to see the main menu again

    • Isn’t hiren boot cd on the main menu? Or do you mean that after restart it automatically starts that menu, without presenting the rest of the menu entries?

      • No it isn’t hiren boot cd on the main menu. After restart it automatically starts into “Hiren boot cd’s menu”

            • Was that file modified at some point?
              After windows setup entry, there should be another one to boot first internal disk which I can’t see. Was that removed?
              When Windows setup is used, the default entry on next boot would be to boot from internal disk, in your case that was replaced by Hiren BCD entry.
              You could remove the savedefault +1 line from Windows setup entry, and replace /default with the same file from WinSetupFromUSB install directory.

    • Click on advanced options, select to show disks on all interfaces, not only USB.
      Be careful what you select, if by mistake the internal disk is selected, data on it will be wiped out with no way to recover!
