Installing Windows 7 from harddisk.
I am having a compaq laptop.
I am having a 500GB spare HDD which can be used as internal HDD. Its totally empty.
Currently there is a 250GB HDD attached to my laptop which is having windows 7.
I want to replace my 250GB HDD with 500GB HDD and install windows 7.
But my DVD Drive is not working and I also dont have a USB(pen drive).
I can connect my 500GB HDD as an external HDD via USB.
What i want is to install windows 7 on my 500GB HDD by creating a partion in that 500GB HDD and replacing it with installation of windows 7.
and than i'll replace my 250GB HDD with 500GB HDD and install windows 7 via that that partition that i created in 500GB HDD.
I dont know how to make that partition bootable.
Please help me how to solve this problem
Regards and thanks
