The software can read OS installations from ISO files and create a number of bootable flash drives easily. The user can also change customer the file system type, volume label, cluster size, etc. The platform allows users to create a DOS bootable drive and also use a non-US keyboard, the software will then attempt to select a keyboard layout according to the locale of the user’s system.
