FlashBoot: Create self extracting standalone USB formatter
FlashBoot can create standalone self-extracting EXE file (USB formatter) with predefined contents. This file will run in end-user environment under Windows XP or any later version of Windows and extract its content to USB storage device specified by end user without asking any additional questions. This USB thumbdrive will contain FAT filesystem (of variable size) and, if necessary, will be bootable. Self-extracting archive can have customized icon, title, description text, and commands to run after extraction.
Let's take lightweight Linux distribution called Slax to demonstrate how FlashBoot can create self-extracting archives with variable-sized FAT filesystem: https://www.slax.org/
1) Run FlashBoot Pro, click Next:
Besides self-extracting archives with stretching FAT filesystem, FlashBoot supports creation of self-extracting archives with stretching NTFS filesystem, and self-extracting archives with fixed-sized image with any filesystem(s). See FlashBoot User Guide for useful examples and detailed screenshots explaining these features.
Creation of self-extracting USB formatters is available only in FlashBoot Pro.
