USB Flash Drive (Minimum 4GB)

Windows 7 or Vista

1. Plug-in your USB flash drive to USB port and move all the contents from USB drive to a safe location on your system.

2. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Use any of the below methods to open Command Prompt with admin rights.

3. Type in the following commands in the command prompt:

Next type LIST DISK command and note down the Disk number of your USB flash drive.

4. So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:

SELECT DISK 3

CLEAN

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE

FORMAT FS=NTFS

(The Format Process Should Only Take Few Minutes)

ASSIGN

EXIT

Do not close the command prompt as you will need to execute one more command at the next step so Just minimize it for now.

6. Maximize the minimized Command Prompt and type in the following command now:

E: CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "E" is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

7. Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.

Where "I" is your USB drive letter.

8. Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.

9. The only thing you need to change now is the boot priority in the BIOS to USB from the HDD or CD ROM drive.

Oh, and now you can close command prompt

Thank you for the guide Bugsy.

If you have purchased your operating system as an ISO, or feel confident enough to produce an ISO from an existing installation Disk, you can also use the Microsoft USB/DVD Download tool from the Microsoft Store. (Free)

Now you've got two ways to tackle the same problem. :)

Never can have too much information on how things are done.
