There is another easy way to load your Windows 7 Installation DVD on a USB Drive. Check out this 3 minute video.
A special thank you to Tyler and Dave Heckendorf for metioning this tool in my prior post.
I will try and check the comments areas next time. Our search only looks at prior posted articles.
Why do this?
There are times when we need to install Windows and a DVD drive is not available. Whether you want to run an installation on a netbook, a rack server or a new build, the USB Drive is the faster way to go!
The download link (and help topics) to the tool can be found at:
How Does It Perform?
I used the USB Drive I created above to load Windows 7 onto my new refurbished Dell Mini 10V last night and it took 33 minutes. Not bad for a netbook.
The process worked perfectly!
I hope you get a chance to try the process out.
