Windows 7: USB Boot after Clean All

USB Boot after Clean All

Hey everyone,

I cleaned my HD with diskpart while at the Windows7 installation while booting from USB. However, I didn't get to finish the installation at that moment, so I turned off the pc to install Windows at a later moment. Surprisingly though, it won't boot from USB anymore. There is nothing wrong with the USB cause it works on my other pc (tried after the clean all).

The boot sequence in the BIOS is kinda strange though. I used to have 5 or 6 options (3 of them were USB devices), but suddenly there are only 3 options: cdrom, floppy and hdd. What I did next was swap the hdd for USB Generic (some other option at the BIOS), but then it still wouldn't boot from USB. Also tried manually selecting on startup with the F8 button, but that didn't help either.

Any suggestions?

Re burn your iso file to the usb stick using Wintobootic, it works perfectly.

Why don't we boot clean?
This would sure make things run faster, so why not clear startup items & hide all Microsoft services, ecxept for the one I read we need which is Windows Installer service?
