This is the portable edition of FlashBoot, a powerful and simple-to-use program that enables users to easily create bootable USB flash drives, as well as install a mini operating system on them.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the pack anywhere on the hard drive and just click the executable to run. As an alternative, you can save FlashBoot to a pen drive or other removable device, in order to seamlessly run it on any machine.
What's important to take into account is that the Windows registry does not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the HDD without the user's consent.
The interface is represented by a wizard-like structure, where you can get started by selecting the job type: create a bootable flash drive that can be used to install a certain version of Windows, install a mini OS on the device, as well as image the contents of a USB drive or format it as non-bootable (via wipe or quick format).
The source and output files for the aforementioned jobs can be either on a disk/USB or image file. As far as the mini OS is concerned, FlashBoot allows you to setup a fully-functional version of Windows 8/8.1/10 as well as BartPE, a mini version of Windows XP. What's more you can setup a bootable DOS or UEFI Shell on the drive.
FlashBoot runs on a low amount of CPU and RAM, and it quickly carries out a task without encountering any issues. No error dialogs were shown in our testing, and the app did not hang or crash. In conclusion, this is a reliable application that offers quick and uncomplicated solution to creating bootable USB flash disks.
