Zico, at some point you have to put in your system specs. We're flying blind!!!

What I suggest that you do, is back up all that is important and do a clean install. If you do an upgrade you will be back here with problems in the near future. You were given the upgrade tutorial in a prior post.

It might be easier to burn to DVD as sometimes it takes several attempts using different methods to format the USB drive to boot it to install Win7.

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create - Windows 7 Forums.URL

I find the method that always works for me is to load image file into UltraISO trial version then click Bootable tab to Write Image to USB drive, using Format button first.

You'll then need to use the one-time Boot Menu key given on first boot screen to boot the External under Hard drives, or else set the USB drive as first to boot in BIOS setup, just before target HD.

Thank you! It's my freakin mobo. Actually, it's treated me well.

Rich and Greg, what if he images or backs up his Vista OS, reinstalls or reimages it to the external drive, then upgrades the external drive (making it the primary drive)?

As BFK and Rich have both suggested, do NOT do an upgrade. Do a clean install following the the information in the link that BFK gave you. Do not load those programs five programs that are not compatible with Windows 7. Upgrades are many times filled with problems and crashes.
