Supported Sources

Here is an incomplete list of some of the supported sources tested with WinSetupFromUSB.

      • Some background of the situation…My Sony VGN-A790 10 year old laptop with 3 year old hard drive, crashed due to a virus or power outage. I am stuck in a reboot loop, that I can’t stop even with going into F8 and trying safe mode safe mode with command line, last best known, and disable auto restart on system failure, which doesn’t stop the auto restart, I get a black screen with many lines of white text. If I let the screen sit for about 15 minutes, I see the flash of what I believe is a bsod screen, but can’t read it, because it goes directly into the reboot after the flash of the blue screen.

        I tried a disc I made years ago, but have never used, and although it plays it gets hung up on the screen where it says can’t access EULA end user license agreement. I bought what was supposed to be a retail disc, but ended up being DSP generic OEM.It would not play farther than the press any key to boot from cd screen. I have the files copied from that disc, to Win 7 laptop. I do have a bootable usb drive, but have seen no info on how to do a Repair with one.

        I have a picture of the files listed in the folder, how can I be sure that the source is proper? It is DSP OEM not retail, and I have an old sony.

    • Simply because it’s not supported, hence the check and the warning. Better that just not supported and no warning, right?
      Why is not supported- that’s broken design and hard to be followed in a multiboot USB scenario, besides, there is no need of multiple boot.wim, one is enough and can support multiple x86 and x64 install.wim’s.

  1. i used this iso xxxxxxxxx
    author write:

    “At a very early stage of the installation has pre-boot menu where you can select the bit primary shell, that is what will be used by the installer, x86 or x64. Because of this, you should not worry that the 64-bit version of the OS can not stand on RAID, and that users of 64-bit operating system may be without service recovery system. For the most inquisitive: Do not attempt to install the 32-bit version of the OS with the 64-bit installer – the final stage of deployment installer will give an error and refuse to continue with the installation.”

    • I know where you are coming from, been there and tried. Such heavily modified unofficial sources are simply hard to be supported. There is no guarantee if I make it work for one source, whether it will work for the other, or with the next “release” of the same source.
      And please, no links here to copyrighted software.
