Windows 7: put win7 on a usb stick

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
put win7 on a usb stick

For those of you interested in installing from a USB stick or simply learning a little bit about DISKPART:

With Win 7 on a USB stick you can install Win 7 on a netbook quickly and easily.

The main steps are:
Ø Prepare USB stick
Ø Copy DVD to USB stick
Ø Set boot from USB in the netbook BIOS
Ø Power off netbook
Ø Insert USB stick in netbook USB port
Ø Boot the netbook

Why this? There are marvelous demos and tutorials on this subject. This is simply my own notes that I use.

See the attachment for the nitty gritty details.

Sometimes it takes several different attempts, including Win2Flash or even copying files into Primary formated stick (works for me). Then look for flash stick in one-time Boot menu, often under hard drives.
