Good to see MS is making a utility to allow installs of Win 7 from a flash drive. Installation is much quicker, and quieter without the DVD drive spinning at full speed.

Anybody know if this works for any Win 7 media, or just media purchased for download from the Microsoft Store?

Thanks for the info. I will pass it to some friends that are still in the process of migrating data before installing Windows 7.

I may not use it because I already have a Win7 source in a dedicated USB stick since the early betas to do unattended installs.

This is not a nice tool but a foolish one.

It must format your flash disk and must make it with ntfs file type.

In fact, xcopy + bootsect can finished this work quickly.

No contribution does it made to the copitablility of USB boot.

The good news (or bad news :blink: ) are:
the:
http://store.microso...m/Help/ISO-Tool

returns:

Sorry, the page you are looking for cannot be found.

You can try searching our site using the Microsoft Store search box above, or you can browse our site using one of the links below.


And look which results do you have actually searching:
http://store.microso...px?tsq=iso-tool

:w00t:

Page is cached here (at least right now):
http://209.85.135.13...9mm...ool"&cd=3

The link to the Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe is not there anymore.

The tool requires required .Net, in order to be simple and small.....:whistle:

There's a possibility that the original source was actually on MSDN, hence the investigation. However, initial review does show the source and the GPL'ed code being similar, but the origins of the GPL'ed code are in question, hence it appears the tool was pulled pending said investigation. I don't know what will come of it other than Microsoft will probably stop outsourcing tool development for awhile.

Looks like code review did find violations of the GPL, and it looks like a re-release is coming under the GPL:

We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience this has caused.


Stupid pont maybe :unsure:, but shoudn't they apologize also and mainly to the original Authors of the Code? :realmad:

I would also expect the apologizes to be on the actual page:
http://store.microso...px?tsq=iso-tool
where the "offending" tool was available, instead of on a (no offence intended :)) lesser known blog.

I mean, you publish on the Washington Post Site:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/
(say ;)) a complete lie like:

MSFN sucks and is full of malicious code and users


and then you publish on (say ;)) the Peoria Journal Star (again, no offence intended :))
http://www.pjstar.com/

We published a lie, sorry, we apologize to our readers.
