Windows 7: Installing Win7 from USB requires driver (using YUMI)?

Installing Win7 from USB requires driver (using YUMI)?

I have a 64Gb USB 3.0 stick which I use YUMI to install various tools that can boot from USB - I have several versions of windows for installation... when ive gone to install windows 7 AIO OEM it says it requires a driver? strange thing is it does not do this from the same disc - I even inserted the DVD (as requested) and it could still not load a driver...so i restarted it with the disc and it worked perfectly?

can anyone shed any light as to why it might be doing this? when I installed it onto the USB I used 'Try Unlisted ISO from GRUB' as advised by others who said it worked because the windows XP/Vista/7/8 installer lists each item as "Windows XP/Vista/7/8" and you dunno which is which

I have installed this very version from USB before but when it was the ONLY thing on the stick - no YUMI nothing - im trying to avoid several sticks/discs

thanks

also does anyone know where I can get Windows 8/8.1 OEM ISO's from too put on there?

Make sure you downloaded the full ISO and try again using Yumi's Windows 7 listing. I've never gotten the unlisted ISO to work. YUMI MultiBoot...more than one Windows 7 ISO possible?

If that fails use Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool
or UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive.

Double-check to make sure you are attempting to install from a USB2.0 port, not USB3.0 port.

The ISO for Win8 can only be created if you already have a Win8 install. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

i have win8 and 8.1 (RTM) on VMware for testing WSUS Offline for work but need OEM.

also, as I say YUMI win option displays all windows with same name (unless there is a way to change it) so you dunno which one your loading

it says:

Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Loader
Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Loader
Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Loader
Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Loader
Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Loader

thats what it would say if I use the windows loading options...I was advised on here (or 8 forum) to use Unlisted ISO with GRUB but to remove all spaces in filename and that worked but as i say it asks for a driver

the USB stick is a USB 3.0 stick and was plugged into I believe a USB 2.0 port (front port on a Gigabyte H81M-H mobo - happened on someone else laptop too but cant remember if USB 3.0 port...probably)

I would rather have them all on one stick (XP/Vista/7/8/8.1 all OEM - AIO preferably) I know the Vista and XP AIO works from CD as ive used it about 10 times already with customer's product key...

those links show how to make single version per stick...not what im after but thanks

thanks

That error message you received about the driver is symptomatic of trying to install of USB3.0 port, so its worth double-checking (using a USB3 stick/device is fine though).

is there no way for me to modify INI settings of Windows XP/Vista/7/8 loader option to display correct version? - If i do them in order I could edit it one at a time? is this possible?

it was USB 2.0 through front panel:
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-H81M-H (rev. 1.1)

Quote:
6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports (2 ports on the back panel, 4 ports available through the internal USB headers)
thanks
