Err its Kingston or Chinese copy maybe but it seems to have plenty of space. Files are only 500 mb or thereabouts so should be plenty even if Chinese copy.

Hi BloatWarez7,

The 64 bit version needs to be extracted to usb using rufus or similar. If it is burned to cd/dvd all the windows functions work - explorer, disk management, system recovery options, etc , - but you won't be able to use all the extra tools.
You need to burn the above to the USB!

You need to plug the USB stick and start (or restart) the computer.
You also have to tell your computer to load from that USB device, some computers require you enter the BIOS while more recent ones let you choose soon after the motherboard (or computer) manufacturer logo shows up.
Usually you have to press a key from the keyboard which can be Esc or delete, Tab etc. etc. it depends on the computer.

If Rufus can't see the USB stick or it's blurred out, it means the stick is not good to be used as a "bootable "drive".
I suggest you buy a good one also now they are so cheap so you avoid any possible headache during a troubleshooting.

Rufus
Look at their screenshot, the first option is your Kingston, then you load the image of the ISO file containing the image which is the operative system (or utilities) you want to load at Windows startup.

OK Right guys ive managed to install the software on to the USB. It seems to work on my laptop at least and boots to a 'windows desktop' environment thats a little low res and has various 'icons' on the desktop to various applications. So Whats the first thing you would like me to do with these new applications ?

BTW Thanks for the help so far its much appreciated.

UPDATE: OK I've been back to the house and tried the USB stick in my Tower PC. It has numerous USB ports some on the front panel and some on the motherboard at the rear. I tried the ports on the front panel which i know work as i use these most often but they would not boot from the USB so i'm guessing they need firmware or drivers to work so i instead used a USB on the rear I/O panel of the motherboard and it failed also. I've gone into the BIOS and while there is no option to Boot from USB there is an option to boot from floppy which can stand in for a USB i believe. There is USB Configuration and it seems fine. It was set to auto but i also tried Enable but neither worked. :/ Sigh. I know you can boot from USB on this motherboard so why is it not working ? >

I never tried that utility package so I don't know what programs are there, wait the answer from the people who suggested it.

When you install Windows it installs standard USB drivers so if the motherboard USB slots work, it should work the one on the case too, keep reading.
I guess you have the paper manual and if not you can download it from here --> P5Q-E Manual | Motherboards | ASUS Global
There are 3 versions so for each there are different manuals, I checked the latest one.
In fact this motherboard sucks and generally ASUS because they always do things to confuse people like for example assigning the F8 key for the quick boot order (on some models) while this key is traditionally used for Windows to boot in SAFE mode.
I read somewhere they say this motherboard doesn't read USB devices bigger than 2GB so you might need to update the BIOS firmware.
You need to plug the USB stick then start the computer and go into the BIOS, you should be able to see the USB device there.
