Preferred Solution: bootable Pendrive

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

just got myself a 16GB Kingston Drive and what i want to do is put 2 or more bootable images on there create my own boot menu so i can choose what to use when i need it

saves carrying a bunch of CD's

e.g.
1 x windows 7 ultimate install
1 x windows 7 basic install
1 x Hiren's boot CD

i take it, its possible just unsure how to proceed.

something like yumi..... http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-mu...t-usb-creator/

Answer:2 bootable ISO's on 1 pendrive

Yumi works very well but I think you may have problems with two Windows Install ISOs. There is a specific mention of that in the documentation. I don't have any install ISOs but I have a WinRE repair ISO, A Macrium Boot ISO, Puppy Linux, Memtest86 and the Hirens CD on mine.

Question: Bootable pendrive

I know its been covered before however using a pendrive for a bootable drive are they faster than say a standard HDD due to the solid state memory?

Say for example i had a 4Gb pendrive and installed all the O/S and drivers onto the drive, would it boot faster than my 7200 160Gb HDD?

Or alternatively used the files and setting transfer wizard to make the drive bootable?

Surely the onboard memory of the drive has faster access speeds in a USB2 slot? Or does it have to be a USB1.1 because the drivers for the USB2 wont load at first boot?

Just being nosey really!
 

Answer:Bootable pendrive

Nope, a USB stick isn't any faster - some new SSDs (actual hard drives) are around the same speed as a good HDD.

A bootable USB stick will be quite slow and won't last as long as it has a limit on the amount of writes. They are good for playing with Linux though

Recently I downloaded Windows 7 SP1 x32/x64 ISO and I want to make bootabale pendrive. The whole file size is 3.8GB on disk and can't fit in my 4GB pendrive which is actually just around 3.6GB in capacity. I need around 123MB more free space. Is there any file that I can remove from Windows 7 installation like unimportant updates that I can download it later?

Answer:How to fit in Windows 7 SP1 into bootable 4GB pendrive

Honestly, you'd spend less time and have less aggravation if you just bought a bigger flash drive. The only way to remove files that you consider unnecessary is to use a tool like nLite.

Hi,

I don't really know if my post is in the right forum section, but here is the idea.
Since I installed windows 7 on my new laptop, a MSI Ex625, I encountered some problems.

- I have some buttons, one of them is used to choose the alimentation mode of the laptop. An other button used to put my laptop on the "cinema pro" mode which activates my subwoofer and improves the video quality.

- I can't install Quicktime anymore and use iTunes (but it is another problem).

So, I contacted the MSI support and they told me to install the drivers for my laptop from their original website. That operation done, nothing changed. So they asked me to make an upgrade of my BIOS.

The fact is that I never performed that before and I am still looking on how to boot from a pen drive in order to install the new version of the bios. Would anyone know how to make a bootable pendrive for win 7?

Any help is welcome.
Thank you for watching

Give this a shot if you have img burn. https://mindthebandgap.wordpress.com...o-an-iso-file/

You can bypass OpenCandy on any affected installer by using the switch ' /nocandy' from a cmd window eg

C:\Users\username\Desktop\SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe /nocandy if you need to install it.

I need help to make a pendrive FDD bootable.
My 3480ct laptop does not have the traditional floppy drive instead it uses a USB floppy and the bios has an option to boot from USB FDD.

I would like to use a usb pendrive to boot (a Lexar Jumpdrive 32mb 05dch pid 0080h and GXT 1gb 1516h pid 8628h), in place of the floppy. I want to load the XP boot disks on it, so I run recovery programs using chkdsk.

I have tried the usual suspects, the HP boot loader, makebootfat, and mkbt20.
I tried the demo version of the commercial product Flashboot.
I imaged a Dos 5.0 system diskette onto the pendrive using the demo of AI-Setup.
All failed including the specific option in makebootfat that images for FDD option and 3 different options of Flashboot.

I ran
http://enos.itcollege.ee/~mkalme/PAHN/Tut/Tut.html

Using ICY Hexplorer I was able to confirm that DOS5.0 on the pendrive bootsector is identical to the floppy.
I could boot in Dos5.0 from a floppy with the USB Panasonic drivers and confirm that my Lexar was a 1.44mb system disk and command.com shows in the directory. The GXT is not recognized by the Panasonic, nor Duse 4.4 nor 4.9 DOS USB drivers. One other troubling indicator is that My Computer in XP could not see any files on the the pendrives, not command.com, nor the two hidden files (show all hidden files option on).

Answer:Portege 3480ct: How to make a USB pendrive FDD bootable?

Hi

You cannot boot from the USB stick.
The BIOS on the notebook does not support something like that.
Notebook manufactures supports and use different BIOS versions. As far as I know on this notebook the Toshiba BIOS was installed.

In my knowledge this BIOS doesn't support the booting from USB pendrive but only from the HDD, ODD, LAN or USB-FDD.
If you want to boot from the USB FDD you can create an FDD boot disk.
Windows OS creates the booting FDD when you click right on the connected FDD and select format. Then simply choose the option ?create MS-DOS start boot disk?.

Answer:My Lenovo B460e Laptop not detecting Bootable Pendrive

hi Santh93,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Try using other Pendrive (Other brand)
   This might be compatability issue with the format
 
Or the BIOS is se to load a proper UEFI boot. If this is the Case you will really need to enter the BIOS and set it to boot as legacy for it to boot on your flash drive.
 
With the BIOS Password, the only thing I can think is to call Support team for assistance.

Hi everyone, I am new to the community so bear with me. I have seven Lenovo M91ps all with the exact same configuration and newest BIOS. All of them came with a 250GB drive with WIN 7 Pro on it, which I deleted and formatted over. I installed 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 SSD hard drives. Five of them run perfectly. All of them run super fast with reboots of around 11 seconds. The problem is I have two of them which for whatever reason randomly reboot at night. There are no automatic updates. I can't see any scheduled reboot. But, almost every night, they not only reboot, but they can't find the SSD drive. It usually gives an error message of Boot Mgr missing. I have set the BIOS to UEFI boot and also Automatic. The strange thing is that every piece of hardware: USB, CDs, the original drive (which isn't bootable anyway) are at the bottom in the non bootable section. The only thing on top is the OCZ SSD drive (SATA III). When I arrive in the morning to find the error message, I go into the BIOS and go to Startup. The OCZ drive is now at the bottome while the regular drive with no OS is in the top section. I simply change it again and boot into Windows on the OCZ sold state drive. Any ideas? Thanks, Bert

Answer:Software for cloning bootable USB to bootable CDROM?

My guess would be, start with a slax image from a site like this:
Slax: build

Load it into a tool that lets you add files to images. Add the files you need from the USB. Then use the image write command of the tool to create a new .iso. Burn the .iso.

I haven't done custom iso boot images in a bit. Even if I remember the image tool there's probably better ones out there now.

if you have the files on the usb, you should be able to just copy them to the cd and it should boot. i say should because i have not done this. if you use a windows 7 system to do this, you should get the option to make the cd bootable when you burn it using windows.

Due to a serial validation failure of PS CS6 and Adobe's support loging into the system to try to fix the validation issue, I would like tp carry with me a bootable device to restore the system (I use True Image). Any experience with a working USB 2 or 3 device as boot, and can I use the SD card slot to boot with a 128gb card? I do not need the instructions on making the device bootable, just which has been tested as working. I bought an early Sandisk Cruzer, only to find out from Sandisk it cannot be made bootable... but Sandisk claims the newer Cruzers are bootable.  Only the early production is not bootable . . . . but there is no outward mention on the box or USB key of the difference. I'm thinking Lexar (=Crucial =Micron Technology)  

Answer:USB 3.0 Bootable Drive or Bootable SD Card

I have a 32GB Sandisk Cruzer with all Windows editions in my computer bag at all times, It's just formatted in NTFS, and then I drop the contents of the Windows ISOs in their respective folder and leave the content of the one I want to boot in the root of the drive. Perfectly bootable. Then I have a couple of 8GB Cruzers, one MBR FAT32 Fedora 20 x64 and the other GPT HFS+ MacOSX Lion, both perfectly bootable. I also have a 32GB TDK MicroSD that I have a full working Fedora 20 installation on, and on most later machines, I can boot the machine with it and thus use it to troubleshoot the main hard drive. For your Cruzer, you can check the Bootable switch on it in gParted. Gnome Partition Editor

I read all the messages about making sure the partition is botable. However nothing was mentioned about changing a partition that has an existing OS working on it from not bootable to bootable.
I have two HDD with two partitions each. One HDD has Windows 98 on partition 1 and storage on partition 2. The other drive has Windows 2000 Pro on partition 1 and Windows XP Home on partition 2.
When I set up my partitions with Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Tools, the only partition that was made bootable was the one active partition with Windows 98. The other three partitions are primary but non-bootable.
I use the Windows loader to access each OS.
Now I need to format the Windows 98 partition but can't take a chance of wiping out the MBR which is on the first disk and thereby having no way to access Windows XP for regular operations until I get 98 working again.

So does anyone knowif it's possible to change the status of a working partition (Windows XP) from non-bootable to bootable without destroying the partition? Other wise I have to completely clean both drives and start over from scratch installing all the OS.

You need to be using a bootable software app, which uses WinRE4x64 for Windows 8/8.1, not a bootable software app, which is using WinRE1x32 for Windows XP.

dear

i want to play movies on my LG lcd TV through Pen Drive.

plz guide me or give me software for that

thanking u

Answer:use pendrive on lcd

Hi,

Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

Dear Friends
This issue may be repeated, and may occur to any of us
I have a USB flash drive, of 8GB
it worked fine for months,
but unfortunately, it is not working any more!
If inserted, the computer recognizes it as a flash drive, and places it in the "Safely Remove Hardware",
but if we tried to open it, it says "Insert disk in drive..."
I saw it's properties it says: Rmovable disk>>> Size 0MB !!!
where the media gone?
I tried to format it says "no disk in drive..."
I tried to fix using HP recovery, and other utilities, but it insists on, "No disk in drive"

Is there is something to do?
Please help...
 

Answer:USB pendrive 8GB=0MB

This can happen when the drive is not removed properly.
Plug in the drive,then go to "my computer".
Right click the drive and click eject.
Remove the drive and restart the computer.
Try the drive again.

hi i have a 4gb usb pendrive ,i want to keep all my photoes on,(about 2.5gb ) in total i have loaded all of them from my h/d onto the pendrive,but i can only view 1 gb,all the otherscome up with an error saying that i can not open them because the are in a(pcd file extension) it alos give me the oppertunity to rename them but that dose not work, i am sure they were all in "jpg" on my h/d ,so i cant figure out whtas going on.in total i have 84 folders in jpg format on my h/d,on the pendrive i have 84 folders, i can only read 22 in jpg all the rest are in (pcd).i hope someone on here can understand what im saying many thanks for reading this

Answer:4gb usb pendrive only using 1gb ?

this is a blind guess but it could be the 84 folders some equipment does not like too many folders. Could you start again but nest the folders inside other folders so that the drive sees a smaller no.

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

HI,I was reading an article the other day about a chap who had spybot and other spyware software on his usb pendrive,and not on his pc i was wondering if it wasn't installed on any pc how was he running the spybot etc, on any machine to check for errors spyware without it being installed on the pc it was just on his pendrive.Puzzles me or is it me? help.Thanks daiol.

Answer:pendrive's

I think he probably had the installer executables on the pen drive. Then he could go to any PC with a USB port and install the program without having to download (especially if the internet connection wasn't working).I've done a similar thing with a collection of anti-malware and diagnostic programs burned to a CD.

Hi, Did any one receive that message on there Yoga2? 

Answer:Message on black screen saying: No bootable device, please insert bootable device.

Hi Paultyk,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
This message indicates that either the bootable Windows image is not working/ corrupt or the hard drive itself is bad.
Try checking the BIOS (FN + F2 on restart) if the hard drive storage is still being detected so reseating it to its place can help ensure that it is not loose on its connection.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

i can't format or copy any data into my pendrive
It shows that Pendrive is write protected..!!
please do help...

Answer:pendrive not able to format...!!

Worst case: Your pen drive is dead. A pen drive that has gone through thousands of Read/ Write cycles can die a natural death when its flash controller decides that it had had its full run and it is no longer safe to write any data on it.(simple non-technical explanation. )

Since you have not given any details about the pen drive in question like the model/make/capacity, for how long you have been using it, whether it is still under warranty, whether other pen drives works normally on your computer,whether you had tried this pen drive on another computer and with what results, and if it shows in the Windows Disk Management how does it appear (is it RAW) etc., etc., it is not possible to give any specific suggestion to deal with that problem.

So here you go on a round-trip.

I use kaspersky internet security but it does not protect my pendrive.

Also detected "autorun.inf" and asked me to do a restart. I restarted thne again same thing happened. Then I went to my friends house then I scanned my pendrive on his pc with Norton. norton detected something called trojan and immediately removed that shit from my pendrive and helped me to get trolled as I'm a kaspersky fanboy sorry I forgot to take screen shot.
How to get rid of this kind of usb virus or so?????

do note that norton deleted virus from my pendrive along with all my documents without single permission.
 

Answer:Best pendrive protection for pc

I am pretty sure kaspersky can scan usb drives. If you enable auto-scan when inserted in kaspersky settings it will always do it.

Maybe you have it turned off?
I just googled quickly and this is the first site i found to show how to enable it in kaspersky settings.

Question: Pendrive problem

Hello

Today, i bought myself a 512mb pendrive, i wanted to use it, windows recognized it as a removable drive without any problems, so i drag-n-dropped a file onto the drive window, but it froze at 30 percent

Ive tried rebooting but no change, the files were still freezing at 20-50 percent

Ive tried to disconnect, and then connect my pendrive, but this also didnt work

I went to a friend of mine to see if this is because of a badly manufactured pendrive, but at his place everything seems to work out ok

Now, im quite a newb to computers, so if you guys could hook me up with any solutions do this, id be very thankful

I had purchased a Transcend Jet Flash 700 USB 3.0 16 GB Pendrive from Flipkart in mid September 2011. The pendrive is not even a year old.

Yesterday I inserted my pendrive in a friend's laptop to transfer files of around 1.5GB. The pendrive had more than 10GB free space. 70-80% of the transfer was done but then his laptop's battery drained off and the laptop obviously got shut down. Since then, whenever I insert my pendrive in any device the blue light on it blinks for around 10 seconds and then the light turns off too. The pendrive is not detected.

I have tried reading the pendrive on my friend's laptop, on my laptop and my tablet too. On each device, the pendrive's light blinks for about 10 seconds but nothing happens.

Please help, is there any way by which I can fix it?

Answer:Pendrive not being detected - Please help

Do you get any error message?

Does the pendrive show up in Disk Management? If so a screenshot will be helpul to give a trageted solution hopefully.

Sir, I have 4gb kingston pendrive. I want to partition it into three parts(three drives)
Is it possible if yes plz tell me how

Answer:Partition of pendrive

1) Windows will not let you create or see multiple partitions on removable media. But you can do it with linux. See this page.

[SOLVED] Making multiple partitions on USB memory stick

2) Another approach is to try and turn your USB drive into a fixed disk by ‘flipping’ the removable bit in the firmware. This is the digital flag that tells Windows whether the drive is ‘fixed’ or ‘removable’. You can do this using the Lexar BootIt utility.

LEXAR JUMPDRIVE USB FORMAT TOOL - The CD Forum

Lexar tool makes creating bootable USB flash drives easy

Create separate partitions on your Corsair USB flash drive « Corsair? Blog

Let me add that the Lexar utility may or may not work on your particular drive, so use at your own risk.

3) The safest option is to buy a few cheap, low capacity drives and use them for individual purposes.

Answer:pendrive not responding

If you've had it for a while it may have reached the end of it's life. There is a limit to how many times you can write to it, and a limit to how long it will retain the data that's on it.I have found the original low capacity ones to be far more reliable, I'm still using a 1GB one after 5 years daily use, whereas the 8GB one I bought didn't last more than a year. So I no longer buy them. I use external hard drives instead. They cost more initially but are more reliable and last longer so you actually save money over the longer term.

Question: Pendrive and virus

When I click on the pendrive icon by clicking on My Computer, it leads to My Documents instead. Pendrive can be opened only by getting exploded view from Folders.

When I try to go to c:\ prompt, it switches back to window. I am sure it is caused by virus.

Please help how to take care of it

Thanks

Hi. . .

You can either create a partition and format giving you two partitons or re-format the pen drive in NTFS format. Right click on the area in the disk management box for options.
