So everyone has heard that with the upcoming Windows 7 you can install via a USB stick. Well it is not just that one operating system; Win XP, Vista and Windows Home Server can also be done this way. Sure others can also be installed using this method but I have not tested it.
So how hard is it? Not hard at all. There are many links on the internet if did a search but a handy little tool has come to light. It is called “A Bootable USB”.
It is best that you use a USB that is 4 GB or greater but on some of the OS installs you can use smaller ones. Be aware that some USB sticks that I have tried have just not worked.
This utility is so easy to use; The Utility, a USB stick and the DVD or ISO image of the OS. The utility can create a bootable in a few minutes. You simply specify your source (DVD or ISO) and click “Start” (“Start DVD” or “Start ISO”). Upon completion, you’ll have a bootable USB drive which you use to install your new OS.
