Icon17 Install Vista/7/XP/2003 from USB with WinSetupFromUSB

What it can be used for adding to your USB stick/disk:
  • multiple Windows XP/2kX sources in the same partition (up to 10). They have to be in the first partition of the disk! Existing folders ~BT and ~LS and TXTSETUP.SIF will be renamed, and SETUPLDR.BIN and SETUPDD.SYS patched against the new names. Checksum checks are also corrected. BTS OEM folders are supported and renamed accordingly.
  • BartPE/WinBulder/UBCD4Win/WinFLPC (NOT ramdisk versions) to any primary partition. Multiple BartPE for example, in the SAME partition are NOT supported. Neither is the mix of them on a single partition.
  • Vista/Windows 7 setup to different primary partitions. Multiple Vista sources in the SAME partition are NOT supported. Place your second Vista setup in another partition. It can be placed on any primary partition.
  • PartedMagic, a friendly Linux distro including GPartedopen source partition manager.
  • SyLinux bootsector, and optionally a directory, containing (Linux) distro booting off SysLinux. For example you may extract UBCD411.ISO, and point it to this folder. Entire contents will be copied and entry for SysLinux will be added to the boot menu.

Some features:
  • detects UBCD4Win and uses multiboot menu for it if folder IMAGES is found. Only default UBCD4Win multiboot options are added. Edit UBCD4Win.lst to add custom ones.
  • UBCD4Win boot menu is adjusted to boot from the selected partition. It can be placed on any primary partition.
  • if Windows setup folders (~BT and ~LS) and txtsetup.sif coexist in the same partition as BartPE/WinBuilder/UNCD4Win/WinFLPC, SETUPLDR.BIN of the latter is patched not to use txtsetup.sif in root. Checksum checks are also corrected.
  • grub4dos is the main bootloader/manager. Without it's advanced features, multiple partitions will not be easily achieved.
  • Bootsector loading GRLDR is installed in the active partition of the selected disk. Hence the requirement for active partition and MBR.
  • detailed log file is created in the folder, where program is executed from. Use it for troubleshooting. Upon next execution if log file is found, it's compressed in MS cab format, removed to BACKUPS folder and renamed with current DATE/TIME stamp.
  • upon installing grub4dos bootsector, backup of MBR and bootsector with DATE/TIME stamp are placed in BACKUPS folder. Use it in case something goes wrong.
  • if in Windows source folder winnt.sif is found it will be used as answer file. Section UNATTENDED will be temporarily removed, only for the Text part of setup, and before start of GUI mode it will be merged back. PRESETUP.CMD is used for this purpose.
  • $OEM$ folders are copied by presetup.cmd
  • option to start the prepared USB disk in QEMU for testing purposes. Use carefully at own risk, do not attempt write operations!
  • tooltips on almost every element in the GUI
  • for multi partition USB stick use the cmd files in "files\tools\MULTIpartitionUSBstick". Works for 32bits Windows only! This is not thoroughly tested option, use at your risk.

the tool works too easy! what I had to manually do and took 30min+ , this tools does in less than 5 seconds; select source, format the USB stick with included tool, click go.
