GeneralWiNToBootTic free utility: creates bootable flash drive with Win 7/8 PinPopular
BillWoodruff29-Oct-12 7:22
memberBillWoodruff29-Oct-12 7:22 
I downloaded the free WiNToBootTic utility [^], and it works very well: I had a bootable 32 gig USB flash drive with a Win 8 RTM Trial ISO on it in a very short time.

I really like simple tools that do one thing well. Click once to make the drive you selected formatted; confirm permission to format; after formatting: drag-drop an ISO file into the zone in the WiNToBootTic UI designed for same: ba-boom. It just works.

Changing the BIOS to boot off that flash drive was simple: and then it was fun to wait for Win 8 to take about eleven minutes to put up the "install" initial dialog. Contrary to MS's claim that this 90 trial version required no software key, it would not install, but that's just what "normal" is these days in terms of my experience with all Windows software Smile | :)

I read about WiNToBootTic on How-To-Geek, which is running an article on a gaggle of free tools for creating bootable flash-drives (and other hard drives) for Windows 7/8, Linux, etc [^].

best, Bill
