Installing Windows 7 from a USB stick
April 04, 2011
Update: There is now this Microsoft tool to do this for you.
This is borrowed from Dennis Chung’s page about the same title. I’ve adapted it slightly.
- List volume
- Select Volume 5 (Replace 5 with number reflecting your USB Drive)
- create partition primary
- format fs=fat32 quick
Mount the ISO using Virtual Clone Drive. Then copy all the files from the newly mounted disk to the USB stick.
I’ve tried this out with a Sandisk Cruzer and had no problems (except a minor issue with a raid driver crashing).
