Upon selecting the ISO file you wish to convert to a USB, Easy USB Creator will automatically detect the type of the ISO or IMG file that you are trying to convert, and will take the necessary actions using a heuristic that will try to ensure maximum compatibility with your PC, as well as attempt to make any necessary adaptations to the contents of the ISO file as needed to make it work as a bootable USB.

    nanakass, thanks

  4. Hi ! Im having problem, when i creat usb, says “unable to identify ISO image, format not supported” What can it be?

  5. I bought the EasyRE, downloaded Win10 iso option, used Easy USB Creator to create bootable USB, configured my bios to prioritize USB boot and enabled legacy…
    On startup(tried two pc’s) it does not boot from USB. I’m unable to get value from what i paid for. Please help or return funds.

  6. @Regan you can send an email to easyre@neosmart.net for support; but in answer to your question: you say it doesn’t boot into EasyRE, but you don’t say what it does boot to (which we would need to know in order to provide some sort of answer).

  7. EasyUSB Creator Lite fails, error “Unable to mark drive as active partition! Please manually make the drive active before trying again!”
    I fail to find, what that means, what I have to do?
    Why is there on instruction after the error message, what how to do next, or where to find instructions how to proceed?

  8. @Ger you must have an unusually-partitioned USB disk. Use Disk Management (Start | Run | diskmgmt.msc) to clear the disk of partitions and create a new one.

    Lucyper7M: Are you kidding, diskmgmt.msc isn’t able to delete a Partition from an USAB stick. If I use another tool and delete the Partition, plug in the stick again it generates a fat32 Partition wihout drive letter. Without drive letter the stick can’t be selected from your tool and with drive letter, the error message remains. Honestly, that’s not a joke, you should fix that, otherwise it’s not possible to create this stick. With rufus 2.12 I even can’t create it, it doesn’t boot.

  10. Lucypher7M: I did it now with Paragon, but thew Windows 10 onboard tool, like you mentioned, isn’t working for that.

  11. Hi, I’m trying to burn the ‘EasyRE_Win7.iso’ using Easy USB Creator Lite v2.2 to a usb stick. I formatted the usb as fat32 and then as ntfs but both times I get the error – “unable to identify ISO image, format not supported”. When I try to burn the ‘EasyRE_Win10.iso’ it burns, although I cannot boot to it.

    So anyway, I want to be able to burn the win7.iso and boot to it without the “unable to identify ISO image, format not supported” error. Any ideas?

  12. @jonni: It sounds like your download is incomplete or corrupted. Please delete the file you downloaded and then download it again from the link in your email.
