  1. Hi, Windows 10 Ready for used with WinSetupFromUSB ver 1.6

    Tester With :
    FlashDisk KingSton DataTravel (100 G3) 8GB USB 3
    Format With NTFS
    Harddisk IDE 20GB

    Result : Windows 10 running well, Very Good, Very Nice. Give all Star (*****) for WinSetupFromUSB 1.6.

    WinSetup is good for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

    • If no files outside the wim file are needed after boot, both windows vista… and linux iso options should work.
      If files will be needed, then use the windows vista/7/8… option.

  2. Just a question… is it possible to utilize an Win7 AIO ISO x32-x64 ISO ? What about other O.S. like HAIKU, MenuetOS, Kolibri, ReactOS, FreeDOS, and many more ? Thanx for reply !

    • I don’t know about other OS but you can definitely use a AIO (more than one version) disc of windows seven

    • I have not tested HAIKU, MenuetOS, Kolibri and ReactOS, but the chance to work just fine is very high. About the other “many more” you need to be more specific. There is a list of tested sources, it’s incomplete, meaning a lot more sources will work, just have not been tested or reported yet.

  3. Tested with Fedora-Server-DVD-x86_64-22.iso,And when I bootup,it report:failed to load ldlinux.c32.

  4. Tested with Error message:failed to load ldlinux.c32

    and other things are all good for me! thanks a lot.
