Here I have a Kingston Data Traveler 100 16gb model that still took the 20min. mark to see 7 installed. That was actually from running the installer while being in Windows to see the initial setup files copied over until the initial restart seeing the installer carry on from there. A solid 5min. for the file copy to drive first.

I've seen the OCZ ATV turbo 4gb benchmarked as fast. Do people have any recommendations for a 4gb + flash drive?
If you read the previous post, as I quoted above, then you see what I am answering...

I caught that one right off from constantly walking past the Sandisk brand often in retail stores. When first deciding one would be needed here I then started looking at capacity as well as the prices seen on some and looked at the 16gb as the go between there.

win 7
baarod unable to boot

baarod, I have installed Win7 using your method, all is well untill I unplug the original drive.
New Win7 will not boot, I have tried:
1. repairing with Win7 Disk
2. Using VistaBootPro to edit boot config
3. Copied files from original Win7 instal, bootmgr etc
There does not seem to be a boot.ini file to edit (as in Vista).
Any suggestions would be appreciated

Should I install Build 7077 or 7000?
So, I've been using Build 7000 but went back to Vista x64 because my surround sound didn't work. You think the 7077 build will fix that? It's the onboard 5.1 surround sound (asus board). Also, should I wait for the official RC or just suck it up and deal with the surround sound issue in 7000 or...
