Help installing windows 7 from a USB Drive! :(

Hello people, I am having the following problem:
I did the wintoflash thing with my Windows 7 Home premium DVD and it doesn't boot up correctly!

Whats wrong?

I start the computer, Press F11 for the boot manager, select USB Kingston DataTravler 112 and hit Enter, It starts the "windows is loading files" then the boot screen comes up as it should! But when comes that part to choose language and the keyboard and stuff, But only the cursor apears, and the windows doesn't, the only thing i can see is this screen and the cursor, please help?

It`s probably not copied to the USB properly. Try using Imgburn at 4x to burn it to the USB.

Yes but the program asks me for a .iso... I had to extract it right?

If you extract the ISO from DVD using ImgBurn you may need to write to stick using Universal USB Installer since Windows Download tool can be picky.

Or you can use the latest official installer ISO and tool from the Reinstall tutorial in my signature below.
