Windows 7: No problems with USB install for Win7 RC7100

No problems with USB install for Win7 RC7100

I had device driver problems when installing Windows7 RC7100 from DVD so I setup a bootable USB drive.

Follow these instructions.

Plug the drive into your PC.
  1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  2. Get the drive number by typing:
    list disk
    On my machine the USB disk was number 1.
  3. Format the drive by typing:
    select disk 1
    create partition primary
    select partition 1
    format fs=NTFS
Then copy Windows7 files from ISO to your USB drive.

Remember to setup your bios to boot from a USB drive.

I also setup multiple boot for XP, Vista & Win7 - no problems.

I received the same problem when installing from USB. Turns out it was due to a corrupt download. Same problem can affect DVDs if the data didn't write competely correctly.
