WinSetupFromUSB is a collection of specific tools to install operating systems from a USB memory that allows us to use it as a bootable disc and carry those OS around with us all the time.
This practice is becoming more and more common because there are more and more laptop computers with CD units, the size of operating systems is getting smaller, and thanks to this system we can access more than one operating system on the same USB memory.
Systems that WinSetupFromUSB is capable of booting
Although it's more complicated than many other programs of this nature, WinSetupFromUSB is compatible with many more files than the majority:
- Installation files for almost all Windows OS: XP, 2000, 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Windows 8 and Server 2012, both 32 and 64-bit versions.
- The main Linux distros: Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, amongst many others.
- Other ISO images compatible with grub4dos CD emulation, such as Ultimate Boot CD or Acronis and Paragon bootable discs.
- Several WinPE2-based sources for ISO files such as Windows Defender Online or versions of Norton Ghost and similar.
If you're not too experienced in this kind of task, there are other easier-to-use programs available here at Malavida, such as UNetbootin or YUMI.
