Utility to Create Bootable USB Drive to Install Windows Vista, Server 2008 and 7
OK new version source is here:
Back when Microsoft started giving Windows 7 the first beta, I started using it while testing functionality of my system with the new operating system.
Somewhere in a blog I read how to make Windows 7 boot and setup from an USB drive. It was about 6 or 7 lines that you had to run in a command prompt.
Then I wrote a batch file containing that lines of code. But unfortunately every time I run the script I had to edit 2 lines in the batch.
So an idea came into my mind: "Why not writing a script doing all these automatically?"
Note that before that idea I knew about AutoIT but I had not a chance writing a script.
The first script was about 200 lines, with no gui, with nothing but just was functional. Everything was like I wanted to be and I was very happy with that.
After that I thought again... "Why not making a gui for it?" and this is the result of my idea.

This script uses also:
a modified copy with progress dialog to fit my needs
two small examples from Melba23
one for getting focus on input
and the other for window dragging (don't have link right now)
If I forgot something else don't hesitate to tell me.
