Windows 7: Booting from USB instead of DVD,

Booting from USB instead of DVD,

Booting from USB instead of DVD,

I wanted to boot from the USB instead of doing this from the DVD knowing that the DVD contains the Windows 7 Operating system. All what I did is copying the DVD to the USB.

I managed to give the USB the first option for booting, nevertheless, the machine doesnít respond to boot from the USB

What might be the issue? What should the USB contain to be bootable?


Thank you

Best

One method that always works for me is using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive
