Post Doesn't recognize boot partition on my USB ext harddrive
WinToFlash Pro Doesn't recognize boot partition on my USB ext harddrive.

This is so sad cause free tool like YUMI or XBOOT recognize boot partition (fat32 partition) on my USB External harddrive.

I got 1 TB USB ext harddrive that I made 2 partition on it. One for storing data and the other is only 4GB as a boot partition (emergency boot disk). I wanna make emergency boot disk that has Minitool Partition Wizard, AOMEI Backupper, etc on it.

WinToFlash works with storage media (\\.\PhysicalDriveX), not with partitions only like that tools. It will repartition and reformat your drive as part of the Bootable USB creation process, this is very important for compatibility with buggy BIOSes. In this situation better way is to use USB flash drive instead of HDD.
