Post NTFS Support
Hello:
I tried to use WinToFlash to install Win7 from my USB Pendrive.
However, I'm using a Win7 SP1 X64 ISO mounted in a virtual drive. The INSTALL.WIM is larger than 4GB. So as WinToFlah only supports FAT32 and this file system has a file size limit of 4GB, I failed to create the installation usb pendrive.
I tried reformatting the drive to NTFS and disabled the format option in the program, but it also didn't work. It doesn't copy lots of required files. I end with a 8gb pendrive with only 300MB used space. It should have nearly 5GB of used space.
Is there any fix for this?. Maybe in the next release?.

We will add NTFS support soon, may me this or next month.
Now you can do this: get second USB drive larger enough to store install.wim on it. On the first USB drive transfer Windows Setup as usual; format second one into NTFS manually and copy winstall.win there. Insert both drives into PC you want to install the Windows and boot from first.

No, because exFAT is not supported as a boot option.
This is not our limitation, boot loader for exFAT doesn't exist. You need NTFS to store 4+ Gb files.
