WinToUSB 3.8 is a simple Windows installation utility on an external USB drive or pen drive. This way we get a portable operating system that we can run almost on any PC. All you need to do is plug in the drive or USB key and set it up in the BIOS or UEFI to boot from the appropriate data carrier.
WinToUSB allows you to install a Windows NT 6.x compatible system, which is supported by Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 and 2012. The installation process requires a CD / DVD or ISO image with the desired image according to Windows version. It is worth noting that with DVD or ISO with Windows 8 / 8.1 it is also possible to create a USB storage device that will run the Windows To Go mobile workspace. The application supports USB drives and keys that use MBR and GPT data structures. To install Windows, we do not need to use the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) and the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (WADK).
WinToUSB is very simple to program that’s wizard allows you to choose the installation source (CD / DVD or ISO image), definitely the Windows edition you are interested in (for example, Home Premium or Professional), select the target USB media (we need to format the USB drive or USB flash drive) as well as determining which boot volumes and system partitions will be created. Once you have gone through the wizard options, you can start the installation process.
The layout WinToUSB looks quite old, but the basic level of aesthetics was taken care of. Application support is very intuitive; less experienced users should not have special problems with it. In case of doubt about the meaning of the selected features, you will be able to read the tutorial and the FAQ section available online at the developer’s site.
Because Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 do not have built-in support for USB 3.0, these systems must be booted from USB 2.0 ports.
Windows 7 is not a fully portable system – there may be problems with activation and drivers on different computers.
Run the program as an administrator.
The tool also works on Windows Server 2008 and 2012 and probably on Windows Server 2003 (because we run it on Windows XP).
