- RMPrepUSB is a front end graphical user interface (see screenshot Fig. 1 below) for the Windows command line program RMPartUSB.
- RMPartUSB is a command line Windows program that can access USB storage devices, e.g. flash memory (UFDs) or USB hard disks or USB card readers, and partition and format them to make them bootable.
- Supported Operating Systems that will run RMPrepUSB/RMPartUSB include: Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, Windows 7. 32-bit and 64-bit versions are fully supported. WinPE v2 and v3 is also supported but the Copy OS Files option may not work and you will need to type in the folder path instead.
- Bootable Operating systems: You can make a USB pen that will boot to MS-DOS, FreeDOS, WinPE v1, v2 or v3, BartPE, XP, Vista, Win 7, linux (via grub4dos or syslinux boot loaders).
- Portable - RMPartUSB andRMPrepUSB uses a vb6 DLL which is normally already present in Windows but is included in the download. The Installer version merely copies files and adds Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts, it includes an un-installer but you can just as easily simply delete the folder from your hard drive. These apps do NOT require .NET Framework support or WMI support.
Looks, interesting... Looks like it is geared mostly towards creating Windows Based Bootable USB OS's. I may try it out on my WinXP System, next time I get on it. Presently my favorite Bootable USB Creator for Windows is Yumi and I like Sardu too. What I really want, it a nice GUI App for creating Bootable USB's that will run on my Fedora 14 System, that I use every day...
