First off, yes, I integrated all the proper sata drivers into my winstallation DVD. During the blue screen install, when it is copying files it is VERY slow. Most files take 3 seconds to copy, and there are thousands of files to copy. Other posts have claimed that it is a SATA driver issue. It may be, but not for lack of one. Oddly enough, it processes the SCSI drivers and SATA drivers VERY quickly, much quicker than it ever has from the DVD.

Here I am, several hours later, my installation onto an Asus EeePC is only at 59%. I truly appreciate this product and would be willing to purchase(I don't see being able to work on netbooks without it) but the speed issue needs addressed. Even copying these files in Dos 6.22 without Smartdrv.exe loaded wouldn't be this slow.

We are sorry, it's nothing we can do about it. It's computer BIOS / Windows setup bug, so we can't fix it in WinToFlash.

We will make the research about this phenomena, may be it will be able to find the problem. But now, please, wait...

Yes, I understand. It's now at 97%. But, since this machine refuses to boot to the USB DVD drive that I have(two of them actually), I have no choice but to wait. I do appreciate the product. Could you tell me what you do know about the bug? Other threads that I have found state the need to load the proper SATA driver.

I have the same problem.... installing Vista/7 is very fast, but XP is slow, toooo slow.... On the same usb drive i install Live Ubuntu and It ran Super Fast.... I dont belive that the motherboard only uses 1.0 speed.... I really find Wintoflash useful but not with XP.... even my Usb-DVD is faster than wintoflash on XP....

I really like to find a solution, if someone finds out please post it.


--sorry by my english, am from Mexico...

Hi. Same for me. Excellent product, great for emergency boot disk for knackered CD-ROM. Any progress with the XP problem? What SATA drivers could I Ioad? None probably if its XPsetup issue.

How can I tell how fast my USB key is? FAT32. It wont let me format with NTFS. Are certain brands of USB key just inherently faster than others?

I love XPpro over newer windows. So smooth, no pointless GUI upgrades. Just simple to max my hardware. I am willing to sacrifice install time for XP running!

Custom BIOS hack new code for USB transfer speed anyone? haha

No this is not a bios problem, I experimented for a while and after a few times I realized what the problem was.

To install Windows XP under the "Format" tab you must chose "Fat16 LBA" not "Fat32 LBA"

When I created a USB Flash Drive with "Fat16 LBA" the installation was very fast, it only took 16 min on one of my desktop.

This is a great program.

That is correct and I have double check it. I think that the reason "FAT16 LBA" option works fast is because WinToFlash format the USB drive with FAT [up to 2GB] and the Windows XP Setup CD uses by default FAT based Disk Caching like the DOS SmartDrive. However, when using the "FAT32 LBA" WinToFlash format the USB drive with FAT32 [2GB and above], so other compatible Disk Caching should be used.
