Hi, I feel really dumb, but I'm unable to create a usb. When I open winreducer and click on start-tools, I get the USB option, but if I create a bootable usb, it creates an empty disk.

However if I START by mounting an iso or folder ... then I dont have an option to create a usb when I click on finish. It just gives me the option to create a new iso or winxs. Do let me know what I'm missing. thank you Smile

Create an ISO, then use the program 'rufus' to create a bootable usb with the ISO you just created.

Hello,

1. In fact, the WinReducer USB Tool just prepare your Thumb drive.
2 .So it's up to you to copy/paste the content from the folder in which you extract and reduce your Windows 8.1  ISO, If you use WinReducer to extract your iso, in this case you need to copy/paste "all the content" in the folder " "WinReducer81\WORK\EXTRACT\ExtractedByWinReducer" from WinReducer 8.1 (example : boot and sources folders, with all other folders and files...)
3. Then, your Usb thumb drive is ready to boot.

I will implement this option (copy the folders and files from your reduced ISO in the future, but for the moment you need to add all by hand ...
