Create selective multi-system installation disks

Typically, you need a Windows 7 installation boot disk to install Windows 7, and you need a Windows 10 installation boot disk to install Windows 10. So, do we need to go to a different installation boot disk for each version of Windows we install? Actually, not necessarily. WinUSB software and a large capacity USB flash drive can handle multiple versions of Windows installation.


First, you will need to prepare a high-capacity USB flash drive. Currently, 32GB, 64GB or even larger capacity flash drives are available at civilian prices, and such flash drives are sufficient to hold the installation packages of popular systems from Windows 7 to Windows 10. In addition, you should also prepare ISO installation files for various systems, which can be downloaded from Microsoft Official.

Next, run WinUSB, which will prompt you to insert and select the USB drive. Once the USB media is inserted, the list will automatically show the volume label name of the media.

Then click the ISO CD icon button in the Add column on the right side of the software, and choose to add several different versions of Windows ISO files in turn. For example, in this example, we will load ISOs for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

If you have multiple Windows DVD installation disks, click the DVD disk icon to load the disk installation files into the software. If you have WinPE ISO installation files, click the WinPE ISO disk icon to load these files.

After you click Next, the software will ask you to select the disc format and format the disc. If the media already contains some data and there is enough space left to store the previously selected system image files, the software will prompt that there is enough space, in which case we can dispense with any of the three formatting options and not format the media and click the Yes button in the lower right corner to directly start creating the installation disk.

Conversely, if the media is already in use and you are running out of space, or if you want to format the media first, simply select one of the 3 formats and click Yes to format and install.

If the exFAT file system is selected for formatting, the boot disk will only support traditional BIOS boot mode and cannot support UEFI mode booting.
