Installing Windows 7 on USB
I have a requirements to install windows 7 on USB. Tried lots of options didnít work at all.
Before trying all option, I made my Pen drive as bootable using diskpart
Please find the options which I tried as follows,
1. I have applied Wim(captured wim) to the pendrive using Imagex Ė Didnít not work
2. Tried with traditional way of installing Windows 7, Disconnected the SATA cable which is connected to HDD. Thought it will show the USB as a mass storage device. But it didnít detect the USB as device to install the windows 7 Ė Didnít not work
3. Took a backup of C drive using Acronics backup tool and applied the backup in pendrive - Ė Didnít not work
4. At last found an interesting article http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7-to-usb-external-hard-drive-must-read/
At last step it fails to copy boot files using BOOTSECT.exe Ė Didnít not work
5. Created a unattended installation by selecting the Disk as the pen drive and deployed the Image, It was successful but When I boot with pendrive. BOOTMGR is missing - Ė Didnít not work
If anyone have a solution for the problem which I am facing. It will be really appreciated!!
There will be master of all. Looking to hear from him..
Hope you might be the one..
Lot of thanks in advance..
