Software to install Windows from a USB device

WinSetupFromUSB is a software bundle that allows users to install numerous versions of Windows onto an operating system with the use of a USB storage device. This is an excellent tool in the event that a system has irreparably crashed or if a standard CD is no longer available. The entire project was started as far back as 2006.

Functions and Primary Uses

WinSetupFromUSB can be thought of as an extra level of redundancy to help protect Windows users from a complete loss of their files. One of the main advantages of this platform is that it has the ability to support most versions of Windows developed after Windows XP. Please note that it is also able to handle many applications associated with Linux and DOS. Recent updates have enabled this app to support both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows.

Other Unique Features

WinSetupFromUSB is able to boot from both BIOS and (U)EFI modes. While its core components are associated with the restoration of Windows systems, it is capable of handling many other ISO files if required. Examples include Arconis, Paragon and Ultimate Boot CD. A final interesting feature is that users can also choose to transfer Windows installation files onto an additional USB storage device.
