Re: Ms Tool to put Win 7 ISO on USB Flash Drive

A clarification, for those that may not realize that this MS tool is not only for ISOs downloaded from MS. It can be used on an ISO created from your MS Retail/Upgrade/OEM disc. You can use this free app to create the ISO:
The Official ImgBurn Website
And then use the MS tool to create the bootable flash drive.
It works great!

Re: Ms Tool to put Win 7 ISO on USB Flash Drive

Good work I used to do this via the command line way and don't forget everyone this is not just for net-books can be used even on a desktop for a faster install time. Lastly it will save your DVD needing to be used for future re installs.

Talking Re: Ms Tool to put Win 7 ISO on USB Flash Drive

Flash drive and (I think) ssd/hdd installs should be way faster than a cd install. I can personally say that a flash drive install is super-fast on my current system.

Yup..Spooky fast compared to a ROM install. I have an image of Win 7 Ultimate. Even burning it as slow as I could I kept getting an error that stated I was missing cd-rom driver files. So I put the image on a 8g USB drive via the command line route. Worked like a charm. Easily the fastest OS install I ever did. I hadn't heard of the M$ tool at the time.
