I want to burn a iso image on my usb flash drive. What is a good free program to use
There's http://www.ntfs.com/iso_burner_free.htm - though any other would do.
SilentNight Micro CD Burner is supposed to be quite good:
Yet another :
these seem to be for cd iso burning. I'm looking for usb iso burning
Whaddaya mean? What is it you're looking to make or burn - a bootable Windows usb?
Maybe this or WinToFlash is what you're after - http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
thats what i was looking for thank you
FlashBoot is commercial, but it's an option. unetbootin is probably better, plus it's free. there are others that may work if those do not.
however, if you "burn" an iso directly to a flash disk as a bootable iso, you loose some of the advantages of using a flash disk over cd. namely, you cannot write on iso any more easily than you can write to a cd. therefore you might want to "burn" the contents of the iso image to the flash drive with a program like PeToUSB (intended for BartPE/WInPE).
I bookmarked this thread from another forum (911cd.net) that I came across some months ago when googling for info on building bootable usb flash drives. Maybe worth a look too.
is there a windows vista live pe boot iso i can burn? something like linux's ubuntu
Since you've chosen to "hush" your objective - I'll sit back, exercise patience and let the next player guess where you're headed ....
i want it if at anytime my computer ever locks me out i can boot into it using a live boot cd
There should be @ least "three ways to reset a Windows Vista admin password" out there.
Wrong direction? Then I'd guess "usb bootable dos antivirus" might be what you want?
no i mean if it becomes unbootable and i cant get into safe mode to correct the problem
You're saying a file-system and, or registry correction?
something like linux ubuntu but for windows not on linux platform
Ubu "like" meaning "graphical" and not Nix based - bootable off usb?
yes when your computer doesnt bootup because of a virus or a system error. You can still get in it using a iso live ubuntu cd or usb is there something like that but using windows platform instead of linux?
Since my personal choice is Nix based, I think it time for me to bow out and leave your request for someone else to answer.
