Windows 7: Need to create a bootable usb backup

It can be done, I install to machines all the time using a flash drive like that, don`t ask me how they make it though, no clue.

It works the same way if you were pulling an image from the network.

It does everything, installs your software, activates windows, installs and activates office etc.

You need a Guru for that, it can`t be hard to do but I`m sure it would take a bit of time

Download RT Seven Lite from the tutorial's link I gave you and you can use it to do your thing.

However,you will have to download all updates from their links (it will take a lot of time).

You can run Win 7 from a USB stick. Google "run windows 7 on usb flash drive."
You can install Win 7 from a USB stick. Google "install win 7 from usb flash drive."
Running Win 7 from a USB stick will be unacceptably slow.
Installing Win 7 from a USB stick is faster than from a CD/DVD.
Installing Win 7 from a USB hard drive is much faster.
I'm allergic to installing Win 7, and only did it once about 5 years ago. Here's how I'd go if you insist on using a USB flash drive.
Make a bootable flash drive with Macrium's Rescue disk utility.
Copy a sysprepped clean image onto on the USB stick. You're all set. Except for any problems you encounter.
