Windows 7: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Sounds like it can be more customizable, but just a bit more involved.

Thanks for this guide, but I'm having a bit of trouble. I have the files that I extracted from my original x86 ISO, but not the ISO itself, and I believe that is the reason why.

When I load my x64 ISO, it automatically brings up the autorun/view files window, but the ISO I made with the x86 files, doesn't, so information has been lost I would assume?, when I copied the x86 files from the disk I had made, when what I should have done is make a copy, or just bloody kept the original ISO in the first place.

Do I need to download the x86 ISO again, or can I do something whilst making an ISO to make it recognise it as bootable? I'd stick with with 64, but it's going on an Acer netbook with an Atom.

You can make a bootable .iso from the x86 installation files very easily with the free vlite - saves downloading it again:

Looks like you are missing a few files.

Have a look in the sources folder - see if you can the setup.exe in there.

I'm not sure I am, it just doesn't seem to want to work...

I now have a bootable x86 ISO, so the issue isn't with that, I don't think, because when I load it up in MagicISO, it gives me the autorun window, but when I burn it to my Kingston 4GB card, it doesn't.

Well, I already did that, I was just saying that that's what I had to do for it to work.

Regardless, thanks for the help.

Right, on my sisters Dell with XP, it boots from the card after restarting, i.e proceeds to load Windows 7 files to do a clean install, so I guess it must work to a degree, however on my system, with bios settings changed, it gives me a black screen with the option to load 7 normally, or run the memory diagnostic tool, but no option to do a fresh install.
