top UX/UI design. I can do, what I want to do, without the hassle finding out how to do it right.

Could not detect removable drive

Was not able to boot into Windows 7 installation.
Burned a Windows ISO to USB but wasn't able to detect the bootable device on multiple machines. Maybe my USB was incompatible, but do not take my word for it.


Etcher writes the image to the disk, like dd does. Windows images need post-processing and therefore cannot be made bootable by Etcher or any other image writer. Etcher documentation suggests you use microsoft's dedicated tool for the job.

I like so much. It's the better burner for removable drive.

Why on earth would you implement a tool like this in javascript/html? No, ill stick to dd...


I wonder if the day will come when people stop discriminating against JS...

Who cares what languages are used to write the program, if it works? ;)
