Windows 7: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

I was - simply to restore some kind of speed to my Notebook, but now I'm trying the various suggestions above. At the moment I have Novicorp's WintoFlash churning away transferring my OEM CD to the USB drive and we shall see if my Notebook likes that better.

OK this method is working after a few false starts...that application offers a rather strange boot menu - I finally found the right choice was the 1st one (it defaulted to the 2nd choice and there were also 5 or 6 others - debug this and that - to make it really confusing), "Text Entry....blah, blah.." or something along those lines and it immediately started the Windows installer.

I just deleted my partition and it's proceeding slowly as we speak.

Thanks folks for the help.

Thank God I still have Win 7 and Vista happily working on my desktop.

Sorry to multipost guys but wondered if you have ideas as to why the MSFT USB/DVD tool still says those downloads I did using the MSFT Akamai downloader are not valid ISO files yet earlier ones (for Win 7 and Vista) done exactly the same way are OK. I even disabled my virus protection during the download, just in case.

If I go to use them I'll use one of the other tools, but this puzzles me somewhat and it's a shame considering how easy that tool makes everything.

Did WinToFlash work fine?

It's a great app., does all this:



* Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 to USB transfer
* WinPE to USB transfer
* USB media erasing, full or quick
* Create the USB drive with emergency boot loader
* DOS to USB transfer

Yes it worked but I am having a heck of a time getting all of Dell's drivers installed...slowly getting there. If I could just get the internet up and running on it things would look a lot brighter. I forgot what a pain in the .... XP can be, not installing drivers for almost everything.

Thanks.

I am so tired my brain has frozen. I need to make a copy of the Dell resource CD to my USB drive so it will autoplay the setup and I am now blank with ideas.

I rieed simply copying the files across to the drive and running from the drive and I can't get the most important things to install. (For instance I can't even find the network drivers so am still without the internet).

Crisis over...finally found the drivers and got them all installed. It is a lot faster with XP than it was with Win 7.

It's only my standby machine after all.

Thanks folks.

Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 

I have Windows 64-bit Home Premium that was installed by the people who assembled the computer for me. It's generic Microsoft OEM not a brand name version "optimized" for a "name" computer. Using an excellent search tool, I have determined that there is no ISO file on my computer. Where exactly am I expected to find this ISO file to which I am supposed to browse?

Thanks,

Gerry Rains

You can't, Gerry. The ISO must be downloaded from the internet, or ripped from a DVD.

It's not impossible there is an iso on the pc - very rarely they are put there by the OEM.

Always worth checking, just in case.
