  1. Hi


    Thanks for the info. I'm quite new to Windows 8, I'm just making my first steps (I just installed it into VirtualBox). Can someone pleae tell me which start menu solution is recomanded and can be integrated into Windows 8 before installation (as an add on for wintool kit)? I've checked the addon section of wintoolkit and didn't see any start menu solution..



    I saw Classic Shell talked about on reddit, so that's the one I got. It's everything I wanted (win7 style with decent customization). I don't feel like it's necessary to integrate it into the win8 installation, but if you really wanted to I think you could do it with any of them via "silent install".

  2. Hmm, I have xp installed on another partition and under xp the drive showed up properly under the disk management and I was able to format it there.

    I copied over my finished win7 install onto the drive but it's not bootable so I guess I'll have to find some other way of making it bootable.

    If the original error that I got when trying to use WinCert's USB boot tool has to do with win7 or 64 bit there should be a warning. Not everyone might be as lucky to have an xp partition handy.

    I guess I'll just stick to installing Windows7-USB-DVD-tool to make my USB bootable.

  3. I can't copy any files to the drive. When I plug in the flash drive I get a popup saying that the drive needs to be formatted before it can be used. Most of the time I can't format it (gives errors - cannot format this drive), but even when I'm able to I still can't copy any files to the drive. I get the error "file or directory is corrupted and unreadable". I can't even run chkdsk on the drive.

    I've tried a number of programs to fix the drive: flash_repair 2.0, testdisk 6.14, icaredrs from here: http://freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/pen-drive-unreadable.html

    WinToolKit's USB boot prep reads the drive as RAW format, 1 partition, correct size, bootable false, status OK. Running it through the Quick or Full(format) options don't seem to change anything.

  4. It actually in the very first response... you extract them and add them to the DVD by overwriting the exisiting files

    Hmm, ok thanks. I was unsure what he meant with that, and I'm still a little confused - for example: the first cab file Windows6.1-KB2023591-x64.cab, when I open it there are 4 files inside, 2 of the files are found in a sub folder of the extracted installation disk: Win7 x64 ultimate +SP1\support\migwiz but the other two exe files are found nowhere on the installation disk. I guess I just put all 4 files into the \support\migwiz subfolder?

    Usually when you make extractions like this the files inside the compressed folder will be in the subfolders they're supposed to go into(eg: the 4 files in the .cab would be in subfolders with the same names - \support\migwiz, so I'm not quite sure.
