Where did you get Windows 7? Can you burn it to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed?

If not try writing to flash stick using UltraISO trial version: On File tab Open ISO, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write. Boot under USB or HD's.

Have no disks to burn to. Already have tried writing it to my flash drive 4 times, same results every time.

Did you use a different method each time?

It sometimes takes several attempts using different methods to get it to work.

The one method which always works for me is UltraISO. Have you tried that already?

UltraISO keeps crashing anytime I try to extract to my flash drive.

Alright.. I can help you with this...

Can you give me a Full File assessment on how big your Windows 7 installation files are.. and how big of a flash drive you are using?

I can help you with this.. I just need to know...that you have the right things...

When you install windows.. you must only have the bare minimum on the computer:

Mouse, Keyboard... thats it.. no extras connected.

Secondly, make sure your computer can boot to a USB flash. Motherboard requirement.

Third, you need to put all your Windows 7 files into a folder on your desktop...make sure they are all there.. even hidden ones.

If you have all those things, then let me know and i'll tell you how to fix your flash to make it work.

My ISO is 2.8gigs, flash drive is 4gigs

Mouse keyboard monitor flashdrive was all I had plugged in

It can boot a flash drive.

All files are in a folder on desktop.

Okay good...
Thanks....


Step 1: Open up Command Prompt in Elevation Mode
Run ==> cmd (right click, open with admin)

Step 2: type "diskpart"

Step 3: type "list disk"
Locate the flash drive... it will only show the gigs, not the label. Should be around 38**mb
Remember which Disk number it is... and be careful... if you do the wrong one.. you can delete wrong disk.

Step 4: type "select disk #" # is the number of the flash drive 1, 2 , 3 ex.

Step 5: type "clean"

Step 6: type "create partition primary"

Step 7: type "format fs=ntfs" may take a few minuets.

Step 8: type "active"

Step 9" type "exit"

This will put you back into the command prompt and out of diskpart.

Let me know when that is one.. there are just a few more steps after this....

It is at about 50%. (Step 7)

Edit: Done with all.

Okay.. In the root directory of the Windows 7 files.... There is a folder called "boot".

What you are basically going to do is write the windows 7 boot sector to the flash drive.

What I would do to make it easier. Right click "copy" the "boot" folder to root directory of your hard drive... that way you don't have to type so much.

So what you are going to do next is:

Step 10: Open up your "My Computer" and make sure your are aware of the drive letter for your flash drive

Step 11: Hopefully you kept your elevated CMD prompt open.....
You will type first: "c:" enter
That will take you into the hard drive's root directory

Step 12: Then type: "cd boot" hit enter

Step 13: type "bootsect /nt60 *:" * being the drive letter of your flash drive.
Doing this should not take long at all...

Step 14.... Copy everything from the Windows 7 ISO extracted.. to the flash drive....

There... You are done.. the flash is now bootable with windows 7.

Step 15: Boot the computer using flash drive.
