In the previous post, I talked about Rufus to create a bootable USB drive. “Easy Way to create bootable USB for many Windows” But in Rufus, you can create only one bootable USB drive for an ISO.
Do you have a collection of Windows ISO and want to create a bootable USB drive for each one? So you have to use a different USB drive for every Windows version. This will increase your expenditure and keep all of these together.
So why not make a single USB drive to be the master installation drive for all Windows versions? this is easy! See how
A USB bootable drive which is very easy to incorporate many ISOs. We can do this easily with the use of a small tool, whose name is WinSetupFromUSB. Download this tool from this link.
This tool takes Windows setup files as its source and creates a bootable USB drive. This can be very beneficial for you if you are a system administrator and you have to keep bootable drives of many Windows versions together. 1This tool will save you money and also your hard work will survive.
2This tool can be used to build Installation Kit for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Windows Vista, 7, 8 and Server 2008. 3This tool also supports BartPE, WinBuilder, UBCD4Win, and WinFLPC. Along with this, you can create bootable drives like Linux and antivirus rescue disks such as non-Windows ISOs.
How To Add Multiple Windows In Winsetupfromusb:
First, backup the data in the USB drive, as it will be formatted. Also, make sure you have enough pen drive size for the number of windows that you want to make a tablet. For two versions of Windows 4 GB pen drive will be enough.
Extract the downloaded WinSetupFromUSB zip file now and just run it. (No need to install it.)
For the first time running the WinSetupFromUSB program on this USB disk, select the option of auto-format. If you do not need to boot in UEFI mode, then select FAT32.
In Advanced Options, you can rename the name of the folder and the name of the boot menu.
Click on the Advanced Options check box from the bottom.
Now a dialog box of Advanced Options will open.
In the Advanced Options box, select the check box for “Custom menu names for Vista / 7/8/10 / Server Source”.
Next, select the first Windows ISO.
Select the check box for “Windows Vista / 7/8/10 / Server 2008/2012 based ISO” and then click the “…” button on the side of the ride. Now go to the location of your ISO and select it.
If this is a large ISO file and you are using the FAT32 file system, a notification will appear on the screen that is very large and will be split in two. It’s okay, now click OK.
Double-check that you have selected the correct USB drive and the correct ISO Windows, which is shown in the box. Then, click “GO”.
If the option of Auto Format is selected, then the warning message will be “All data and partition will be erased!”
In this box, click Yes.
Now the WinSetupFromUSB will format the drive and a popup that will enter the name of the folder for the ISO. If you do not type in 30 seconds, this will automatically take the default name.
Now click on Show Log option to view Progress.
In a few minutes, the confirmation message of Job Done will appear, click OK.
WinSetupFromUSB will now return to its main window. You can then exit this program or add additional ISOs.
In the same way, you can add other ISOs, but it is important to keep some things in mind-
When adding another ISO file to an existing boot disk, do not select the check box for “Auto format it with FBinst”.
If everybody wants to give their custom name for an ISO, then by selecting the “Advanced Options” check box each time you add a new ISO file, select “Custom menu names for Vista / 7/8/10 / Server Source” The check box must be selected.
Its name, like WinSetupFromUSB, makes it flash drive more than a portable storage device. It can be built into a bootable drive for more than one ISO file, with very fast speed.
