Supported Sources

Here is an incomplete list of some of the supported sources tested with WinSetupFromUSB.
Since new sources are added frequently, please check again for updates.

Tests are usually performed on a NTFS formatted USB flash disk, including the Linux based ones. If there are additional steps needed to get a source going or another file system is needed, there will be a note.

Please leave a comment if you have tested another source, with a description and link to it, or if you have a request for a new one.

    • Thanks, but I am aware, just not interested currently since FAT32 works juat fine and large file limitation is taken care of in case of Windows ISOs

        • Don’t think I will spend any more time on XP. It’s mid 2017, XP is long gone and flash drives cost very little. If one so much need to install XP and use NTFS, can always use another stick. Multipartition USB hard disk or stick if it is of fixed type (many recent are, flipping the bit also works) is also option, have the first partition FAT32 and the rest NTFS. Plenty of workarounds and options…
          Adding UEFI:NTFS is not in the to-do list yet, I see no reason to spend time I don’t have anyway, to add it as FAT32 limitations for > 4 GB files are already handled by spliting these.

          • OK, nevermind 🙂 I have formatted pendrive under Rufus 2.14 with option: Boot UEFI:NTFS. Later I installed XP, 7 and 10 with WinSetupToUSB1.7 without formatting. Works with BIOS as well as with UEFI. Thank you for WinSetupToUSB!

    • Was it added using Windows7/10 option? Does it boot? How far does it go? What’s the error message?
