  1. Hi there! I have been using this software for years. Since the first time I’ve have the next problem with just a few PC’s. When I try to boot from the USB drive (USB stick or HDD-USB), the PC’s get stucked in the motherboard manufacturer’s logo. In my work, the most of the PC’s are Foxconn and whit them I have that problem, so my HDD-USB is useless. I need to make a USB stick booteable with another software to proceed to install an S.O or do something else I need .

    Have you ever seen this problem before? Thanks a lot.

    • Have you tried the other format tools included – RMPrepUSB, BootIce? You will need to experiment and find which one works on this hardware.

    • Yes. Click on advanced options and select to display disks on all interfaces. Be careful which disk you select!
      Apparently Windows does not present the disk as connected to USB bus, hence not displayed without that option.

  3. How to remove Plop Boot Manager when booting from a flash drive? In the files menu.lst and \boot\bcd there is nothing like as. The plop is loaded before the grub bootloader starts. Please help me.

    • Plop is loaded only if the hotkey is pressed. Do not press the hotkey and plop won’t be loaded. Does it load for you without pressing any key?!

      Alternatively you can remove it by editing FB boot menu with FBInstTool.

      • Without pressing F2, the plop does not load, this is understandable. I meant just the complete removal in FBInstTool, thanks for the hint my friend. But how to do it correctly in FBInstTool?

        • Click on FBInst menu. Remove the lines:

          text “F2. Launch PLoP boot manager”
          menu F2 linux “grub.exe” “” “–config-file=ls /plpbt.bin || find –set-root –devices=hf /plpbt.bin;kernel /plpbt.bin”

          Change timeout 2 to timeout 0.
          Right click and select Save or press ctrl+s.

          To have this permanent when reformatting, edit \WinSetupFromUSB-1-8\files\tools\fb.txt and make the same changes. Next time you use the auto-format option, FB menu won’t have the Plop menu.

  4. I am select Windows7 – 8.1 – 10 Iso and than Error show

    This doesn’t seem to be valid source!
    Either or all of\source\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

    • Please read the notes in the download section, they are next to the link you used to download the program. Could also take a look at Supported sources page.

  5. New entries won’t show up in menu list after I edited the menu list using bootice. I added a custom menu gfxmenu background.
    How do i manually add windows xp sp3 in the menu list?
    Or the best way to totally remove windows xp from WINSETUPfromusb without affecting other entries?
    Why won’t new entries add in the menu list after edited with bootice, what could be the reason and how to avoid it?
