Ultimate Bootable USB Flash Drive Tool - Windows Installations


Recommended Posts


I love the Ultimate Bootable USB tool, its been a huge help for me. Now I want to take it a step further and include the Windows 7 installations that I currently carry around on 2 4gb minis. I've put the ISOs on my GTR, and added them to the menu. However, once I click the "Install Now" button, I get the error "a required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB Flash Drive, please insert it now."


I assume its looking for a driver for whatever kind of ATAPI emulation is being used to boot the ISO. My question is, does such a driver exist, and where would I find it?

Is THIS what you are trying to do?


Nope, I did that before. Here is what I did:


File structure looks like this:


 Volume in drive F is MULTIBOOT
Volume Serial Number is 6E41-A45C

I was trying to make it so I could boot multiple Windows 7 installation ISOs from the same USB drive, to make it easier than carrying around a couple depending on what I need.

I IMd the person that developed the tool at Pendrivelinux. Here is his reply.


Should be able to simply extract the contents of your Windows Install Disk/ISO to the USB and then use the following menu entry:


title Install Windows Vista/7

root (hd0,0)

chainloader (hd0,0)/bootmgr
