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.

    • Disk is not displayed or what exactly? If not displayed then try the advanced option:
      Display disk drives on all interfaces, not only USB – this should be self explanatory, show all detected disks, not only the ones on USB interface. Use it with caution, selecting wrong disk may lead to data loss.

      Problem is in Windows or the USB driver, program simply requests from windows all drives on the USB. If disk is not there, but is USB, then windows or the driver did not enumerate it properly. For these cases that advanced option was added.

  1. Hi there, Is any chance that i can install Android Remix os and Lakka os to boot from a usb Drive by using winsetup?

    • I don’t maintain such list of links, nor intend to.
      Generally speaking, if the ISO has single boot.wim and default folder structure and naming it should work. Given the large storage capacities and low prices nowadays, I am not interested at all in working on AIO ISOs support, especially because every “release” has its own thoughts how to do it, barely or not following at all manufacturer or any general recomendations or standards. This makes support of such ISO next to impossible in multiboot scenario.

      Programs which dump entire contents as they are, have better luck because no changes or any logic is required when dealing with a single source- just make the disk bootable and copy contents as they are.

  2. Hi, it doesn’t suport WIN PE like this “”. (bootmgr) Please add this option.
