    "Limited usefulness."

    May 22, 2014   |   By onionson

    Version: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool 1.0

    Pros

    None for me or anyone trying to make a recovery disc from a company that makes refurbs.

    Cons

    Same as the pros.

    Summary

    I believe the others that this worked for them but think MS and other big boys touting it for use should explain more and know more before they do. It only works for a narrow slice of the pie.

    "Works Fine - Absolutely no issues"

    May 02, 2013   |   By dechamp

    Version: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool 1.0

    Pros

    It does what the title says - Windows 7 USB/DVD

    Simple interface. Complex process made very easy.

    Cons

    None - It worked perfectly, the first time.

    Summary

    I needed to boot an HP SpectreOne PC that came with Win8 and no DVD drive for a client. They own a copy of Win 7 and don't want anything to do with Win8. I used this tool to create the bootable Win7 installer I needed and it installed fine. Even though USB CD is available in the UEFI where I had already disabled Secureboot and allowed legacy devices, the USB drive didn't show up as a device on the machine.

    A USB flash drive did show up in the list of devices available, so the choice became obvious.

    I don't need this kind of program to install XP or Vista as I will not ever be installing those operating systems on a new pc with Win8 on it, or on machines that do not already have a DVD drive or recognize an external USB DVD drive.

    Every low rating I saw on this forum was based on the tool not doing something the downloader wished it did, not what it says it does or even a guy who doesn't know how to find the ISO or original DVD to let the program make the USB copy. He needs some help with basic windows file systems, and will probably have problems installing and setting up the operating system even if he figures out this program.

    Get the right tool for the job. Use it the right way. Get work done.

    BTW, the tool took less than half an hour to create a bootable USB drive from an ISO file - on a machine that is running XP. Windows 7 installed from the USB drive in less than half an hour due to the speed of the PC and the USB's ability to be read far faster than any DVD drive.

    "Tool is too limited for usage"

    January 07, 2013   |   By ShadowNaz

    Version: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool 1.0

    Pros

    Interface is simple and clean. Download and installation is clear without lots of offers for free add-ons like you see with many of these downloads.

    Cons

    Even though product is designed to work for "Microsoft Images", it will only work on clean downloads. ISO images that have been modified, or created using the Microsoft AIK Toolkit (Enterprise Deployment) are not recognized. If Microsoft is going to take the time to make something like this it should at least work with ISOs generated from its own tools.

    Summary

    There is no reason to make the tool so limited. ISOs are standard formats and it took more work to make the tool extremely limited than it would have took to make it work with a wider range of ISOs. This was a very poor decision on Microsoft's part and makes the tool unusable with other Microsoft products.

    "Excellent tool to easily create USB boot drives of W7"

    August 18, 2012   |   By DiegoFernandez

    Version: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool 1.0

    Pros

    Easy, it works. It does exactly what it says.

    Cons

    It would be great if it could be possible to create boot-able images of other operating systems and all kind of ISO files.

    Summary

    I appreciate that Microsoft provides this useful tool for free but it would be a lot better if they extended the functionality to any kind of ISO. That would be a killer application.
