Works great for installing Windows!

Strengths of the product

Used one to install Windows 8 in under 3 minutes.

Weaknesses of the product

Slower write speed.

Additional Comments

These work fine for installing Windows. If you are doing an MBR install them you can use the MS tool to make it into a boot-able Windows install drive. If you want to do a GPT (UEFI) install then you need to look for a tutorial for making the USB drive boot-able in UEFI. You will then have the option to do either style boot. Just be aware that it only will install according to the mode that you booted.

Does not support installing Windows from USB

Strengths of the product

Speedy USB Flash Drive

Weaknesses of the product

Does not work for installing Windows 7 or higher.

Additional Comments

This Flash Drive does not seem to support installing Windows 7 or higher from it. The Windows Setup will boot and run. At the Drive/Partition selection screen, Windows Setup gives a disk/partition creation error. Manually creating the partition ahead of time does not solve the issue. This is on USB2 and USB3 systems. (Not a USB3.0 Driver issue) We have tested and recommend the Patriot Supersonic Rage XT USB 3.0 Flash Drives for installing Windows from USB. ( MX44199 / MX44202 )
