Bootable flash drive in three steps

    More than a month has passed since the publication of the first post . Having heeded the advice of the residents, we decided to make a master to create a bootable flash drive.


    By exploring the Internet, we got the following result. Create bootable flash drivenot such a difficult task, but you have to 'turn on your head' and waste time reading manuals. In general, to create a bootable flash drive, the user is prompted to download the program archive. The downloaded 'harvester' is as follows - the batch file is launched, without closing it, you need to run the GUI application, without closing the GUI application you need to run the executable file with the parameters, and then again return to the first console window, etc. There are solutions that are simply designed as menu items through which the user sequentially launches the necessary applications. Moreover, the algorithm for creating a bootable flash drive is generally very simple -

    1. Create an active partition on a flash drive.
    2. Formatting.
    3. Installation on a flash drive MBR and BR.
    4. Copying the distribution kit to the USB flash drive 7.

    In a user-downloaded 'harvester', each step is decided by a utility. It seems that languages ​​like C ++, Delphi do not exist, but there is only a shell, scripting languages ​​and ready-made applications. Therefore, we decided to fill the gap and added a wizard to our MultiSet, which makes a bootable USB flash drive with Windows auto-installation in three steps.


    The wizard is still able to create flash drives with Windows PE, Vista, Windows 7. Things are more complicated with Windows XP, but soon I think we will add the function to create a bootable flash drive with Windows XP.
