How to install Windows from USB- WinSetupFromUSB with GUI

2,139 posts in this topic

Can you try something- on installed XP, which never seen this stick, plug it and let it detect it and install drivers. Does it ask for reboot before the device is ready to use? If yes- does this stick have some extra features, like encrypted part of it, CD/DVD part or something unusual?

I have already tried a lot of time! No, the Verbatim usb stick don't ask for reboot, even on fresh xp install.

It's a standard USB 3.0 stick, with no extra features, no encryptions...

We can add a Password protection software available for download, but it is not originally installed.

Sorry for the late reply.

I don't have any more ideas for now, need to be able to reproduce the issue in order to find, if possible, a workaround or fix. Will keep it in mind.

Can you test something with the problematic USB stick?

Get the disk prepared with beta8 if it's not. Extract setup.cm_ to setup.cmd in \WINSETUP\XP...\I386. You may use 7-zip for the purpose.

Find the line

start /min "Keeping USB disk mounted workarround, do NOT close!" pushd %CDDRIVE%

add a new line just above it:

%CDDRIVE%

Put back setup.cmd where it was, no need to compress it in cab.

Please test now. Does the error come up again during GUI mode?

If yes- there is a test version of beta9, it adds some more settings to migrate.inf and adds it as a hive to be loaded by Setup. Prepare the USB stick with it, does it fix the issue now?

What version of the program have you used?

If it's 0.X.X read the docs coming the the program, here is also FAQs topic, Q4/A4:

You may try the latest available version in the first post, currently 1.0 beta8, which should get around this kind of issues.

I hope this is a appropriate place for this request.

I have a boot USB stick that presents a menu with various OS's and utils. I didnt compile the USB disk, but copied at a block/raw level using ddrescue from a friend. It works well from him.

On some computers it fails after selecting a OS to install with the same message:

*****************************************************************

Booting Windows 7 x64

Autodetect number-of-heads failed. Use default value 2

Autodetect sectors-per-track failed. Use default value 10

Address 0x8280: Value 0x80

Address 0x8280: Value 0x80

Load segment: 0x0 System Type: 0x0 Sector Count: 0x8

Load RBA: 0x2DE Boot Type: 0 = No Emulation

Press any key to boot from CD or DVD

****************************************************************

It then boots from the Hard Disk....

The commands behind the Win 7 install menu are:

map --mem (md)0x800+4 (99)

map /Boot/Win7-x64.iso (0xff)

checkrange 0x80 read 0x8280 && map (hd0) (hd1)

checkrange 0x80 read 0x8280 && map (hd0) (hd1)

map --hook

write (99) [FiraDisk]\nStartOptions=cdrom,vmem=find:/Boot/Win7-x64.iso:\n\0

chainloader (0xff)/BOOTMGR || chainloader (0xff)

Interestingly there are some other utils on the USB stick (like Acronis) which show the same message, but nevertheless boots.

Any help greatly appreciated. I can provide BIOS information for computers on which it fails if thats of any help.

Well, have to ask, do you press a key on your keyboard when the message appears?

This topic is solely for WinSetupFromUSB program related issues, going to split these posts in a new topic later on.

The version you are using does not support multiple Vista/7/8 sources on the same partition.

Try this test version which supports multiple such sources added as ISO files:
