Windows 7: Installation From USB

RemoticBoy,

I ask the same question: Where did you get the ISOs?

I could care less about who did what where.

What I want to know is: For the ISO that will not install, where did you get that ISO?

Hi,

It sounds to me that the ISO wasn't properly "ripped" from the DVD, and then transferred to the USB.

Download the correct ISO here, and then burn it to the bootable USB again.

I dont think thats necessary. Because it had been used to install in other pc'. I'll make it clear.

I do not have a DVD drive. What I use is Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool.
I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
What I'm going to install is Windows 7 Ultimate x86.
I need a fresh i.e clean install.

I have a x86 ISO file. But the USB/DVD Tool doesn't recognize it. Says its invalid. Probably some conflict over bootmanager.

What should I do?

And I not only think that is necessary, I know it's necessary.

I wish you good luck.

Bootmanager has nothing to do with this - you have a bad ISO and/or USB. Recreate it from the link I posted, and try again.

@karlsnooks I didnt mean any offense.
What I'm trying to say is I've used 3 different ISO files, which had worked perfectly fine before.
When I googled it, they said that bootmanager tends to have issues while using the USB/DVD Tool as it uses the bootmanager of the OS going to be installed than using the one currently installed.
What do you think of that?

From where did you download the x86 ISO file?

Very good question KOOLKAT.
My question is; why would you want to go from 64 bit to 32 bit?
Please fill in your My System Specs. completely.
