Ability to create Windows USB installers #5

commented Sep 10, 2018

Relevant information:


  • ISO9660
  • MBR
    • Create a MBR partition table with one partition
      • Embed fdisk from Termux
      • Be able to work with sparse files, then copy them to the USB drive
  • FAT32
    • Create FAT32 filesystems (shouldn't be too hard - mkdosfs from Termux)
    • Read/write FAT32 filesystems (libaums can do that)
  • Bootloader options
    • We can use the embedded bootloader
  • Too large install.wim
    • wimlib (a Java wrapper needs to be written)

Once the requirements are met, the app will have to:

  • Create a MBR partition table on the USB drive
  • Add one big FAT32 partition (we might be able to use Android's USB format feature)
  • Copy the image content (not the image itself) to the partition
  • If install.wim is too big, split it.
