Has anyone here used Novicorp WinToFlash?
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:46:20 AM »
as per title, just wondering if anyone had used this software? it basically makes a bootable usb from from the following OSes if you have the install disks: Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.

the app is ad-ware and costs $5.77 for a personal license.

Any reason you're considering that when there are a few freeware tools that do the same?  I've used both of these successfully:

Rufus
Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

Second link didn't seem to work (for me).

Abso-freakin-loutely LOVE Rufus' auto update! It gives a straightforward simple yes/no option, and if you dare hit why it has a plain English - 25 words of less... - explanation of what personal info will be getting shared, and for how long. Now, why the hell can't more companies do that!

Hell...I already love the program and I don't even know if it works! It's plum amazing how easy it is to please people if you just quit trying to screw them all the time ... Ain't it?

i am using Rufus as well but it won't work on certain images, such as winxp recovery console. hence the search for an alternative boot maker.

The best I have found is an early version of Josh Cell Software's WinUSB, but his later versions removed features & with the latest version it's just a mess, unfortunately.
