Windows 7: Creating a bootable flash drive from ISO file

Glad you got it right. Now you can copy any bootable ISO and boot your computer with it. That includes your backup and restore recovery CDs and thats the power of the USB pendrives unleashed.

If you have any problems down the line, please do report here for us to know.

More information is required.

What exactly is the purpose for creating a bootable pendrive?

What exactly did you do?

You may try formatting both the pendrives to clean it. On My Computer, right click on the pendrive icon and click on format. Choose FAT32 file system to format, if you want to create a multiboot ISO pendrive. Uncheck the Quick format and click on Start so that a full format is done. You may then go ahead creating your multiboot ISO pendrive as detailed in a previous post. Of course you must have a clean bootable ISO, whatever ISO it is.

thx for the reply but i just solved the problem. the problem was that i installed on both pendrives Chromium OS and than i just did a normal format to make bootable pendrives without looking on the capacity. so not the app for making bootable pendrive but chromium os caused the problem. i repaired the pendrives in DOS with:

diskpart
list disk
select disk X (select the one you need)
select partition 1
delete partition 1
create partition primary
than offcourse: EXIT

i allways forget this method but this is 100%. maybe for someone will be better to do this for 4 steps and skip others just write CLEAR, EXIT.
