    You need to specify the USB boot feature, and the write filters to preserve the flash memory, and of course no page file, so available memory limits what you can do, especially with 32-bit versions. It runs with reduced performance on machines with different graphics systems from the one it was built on.

    There is now a WES8 beta version, but I don't recommend it - it does not work properly!
    You really don't need WAIK?

    Windows 7 does have BCDBOOT.exe, it's located in the Windows\system32 folder. The commands for Win 7 are different than Win 8 though since Win 7 is not "UEFI aware", so it would just be "bcdboot.exe d:\windows /s d:" without the quotes.
