Windows 7: Error While "Burning" ISO Wind 7x64, Home Premium to USB Drive

Error While "Burning" ISO Wind 7x64, Home Premium to USB Drive

I am attempting to put an ISO image on a USB drive, but I keep getting an error that the ISO Image that I am using is not legit.

I am using the Windows 7 USB Download Tool, burning to a Kingston 8GB Thumb Drive.

Apologies if the post is shorter than it should be, but that is all I have at the moment.

You can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
  1. Download and run Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3
  2. Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
  3. Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
  4. Select your USB flash drive
  5. Click Create

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

Burning software has no way to know if an iso is legit or not. You may just need to download the iso file again, the first one is often corrupt for some crazy reason.

Is this Asus Factory Preinstalled Win7? Is the Product Key readable on COA sticker?

If not where did you get Win7 and how is it being activated?

IMG Burn worked beautifully, however I have another problem now. Setup is telling me that it is missing a required CD/DVD Drivers.

For everyone that is wondering as this is now necessary information, I am trying to install Windows 7 on an HP. I have read(briefly) that there is indeed a work around for this, but incase I can't find that work around again would someone be able to fill me in on a fix?

When you get that error . Click on the Ok button . Remove the USB flash drive move it to another USB port and click on the Install Now button . It should continue without any issues .

Unfortunately this doesn't solve my issue. It doesn't mention anywhere in the tutorial about issues with CD/DVD Drivers. Unless I missed it of course...

The error is almost always a bad installer. Confirm the ISO download completed and burn another at 4x speed.

If that fails wipe the HD first with Clean command then define an Active NTFS Primary partition as shown in SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Be sure to read over Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and ask back any questions you need first. Read the Special Note to HP Owners at the end.
