[Release] FlashBoot V1.3.0.124, Makes USB disks bootable

Post by UtCollector » Mon Nov 27, 2006 7:07 pm

Here is FlashBoot V1.3.0.124

FlashBoot is a tool that makes USB disks bootable. It was specially designed to work with USB Flash devices. It is used to reformat flash disk and transfer system files to it. I used it on a PenDrive mini 1 gb. It hase a transfer rate of 9.5 mb/s on avarage. I would sugest a faster 1. After formating it with the tool from this page i managed to make a bootable BartPE on it. This is a addon for nLite. Sow if you're into (Ore would like to try) booting a OS ore program from usb you might like this.

You have many options for your choice:
convert BartPE bootable CD-ROM to bootable USB disk
transfer DOS kernel only (you may get the files from installed Windows 9x, from Windows 9x setup folder, or use built-in FreeDOS)
convert floppy disk to USB Flash disk (a diskette or an image file may be used)
convert a bootable CD-ROM to USB Flash disk (again images are supported). There are some technical difficulties with supporting any type of CD-ROM here, see details below. But there should be no troubles with the most real cases. You may convert Knoppix and EBCD, for instance.
create Windows NT/2000/XP password recovery disk
create disk with NT/2000/XP bootloader. It would be useful when you have mistakenly configured it, and boot.ini file was left on unreachable disk (NTFS).
duplicate USB flash disk. Just creates a copy of existing disk USB flash disk, different sizes of source and destination medias are OK.
