How To Install Windows 7 And Windows 8/10 From Same USB Drive

In this guide, we will show you how to create a bootable USB drive containing Windows XP, Windows 7,
Windows 8 and Windows 10 installation files to install XP, 7, 8/8.1 and 10 from the same USB drive.

# Windows XP ISO file or DVD

How To Install Windows 7 And Windows 8/10 From Same USB Drive

# Windows 7 ISO file

# Windows 8/8.1 ISO file

# Windows 10 ISO

# 16 GB+ USB flash drive

Procedure:

Step 1: Connect your 16 GB+ USB flash drive to your PC and backup all data before proceeding further, as
the drive will be erased while making it bootable.

Step 2: Head over to this page and download the newest version of WinSetupFromUSB zip file. Extract the
zip file to get WinSetupFromUSB folder containing separate executable for x86 and x64 versions of
Windows.

Step 3: Depending on the version of Windows youre running, double-click either on WinSetupFromUSB.exe
or WinSetupFromUSB x64 to launch the software.

Step 4: Once WinSetupFromUSB is launched and running, select your USB pen drive under USB disk
selection and format tools section (see picture) and select Auto format it with FBinst option. Also select
FAT32 as file system instead of NTFS if you want your multi-boot USB to be compatible with both BIOS
and U/EFI.

Step 5: Skip this step if you dont want to add Windows XP files to the USB. Select the check box under
Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup and then click the browse button to browse to the i386 folder in your
Windows XP DVD or ISO file. Note that if you have the ISO file, you need to mount the ISO file using a
third-party software or using the built-in Mount feature in Windows 8/8.1.

Open button.

menu names for Vista/7/8/Server Source. This will enable you add your own custom names to your

@ PsuFan,
I have tried the tutorial and thats why I have added screenshots. Please make sure that youre
following the instructions without any deviations.

Please actually try and use your tutorial before you post something that doesnt work, Thanks.
GRUB4DOS doesnt support Windows installers. You will get a CD/DVD driver error because it
cant find setup.exe and since they all pull setup.exe from the same folder, theres no way to install
multiple versions of Windows from GRUB4DOS.

this is a silly article. You tell people to choose FAT32 and then also tell them to choose their ISO
file for Windows 7 and/or Windows 8. These files are generally 3-4Gb in size and cant possibly be
put on a fat32 partition. Does anyone read through these and try them out? or am i just being an
Ahole and missing something?

Jonathan u can also use minitool partition wizard to convert your filesystem from fat32 to ntfs
without formatting it and the error in your case is because fat32 formatted pendrive cannot hold a
single file larger than 4.2 gb

When I choose FAT32, and select my ISO it tells me its too big for FAT32. I tried to extract the ISO
and create it again but I cannot get the size down. Is there a way to get around this? Or will I have
to use something like PLOP to boot to USB and just format with NTFS??? Thanks for any help you
can provide!!!!

KKY says

I have win7 and win8.1 ISO file. but they are 11 in 1 edition. so i cant select the ISO file. I can see
following error message.

This file is too large to be placed on FAT32


Either use smaller file (less than 4GB -1 byte), or change the file system to NTFS

I have no ISO file less than 4GB, and my System doesnt support UEFI.

How can I put this ISO files in my fat32 USB ? ???

plz.THX
