Hi, Brink, I value your replies and you are the savior most of the time.
Please, also say, about those two options if you insert a blank dvd or cd in win 7 machine. It asks you to select one option. What is the difference between the two? Which should one prefer.
The options notes are too confusing, hence i asked you.
Did the first option of usb: means you could just copy and delete paste as in pendrive
I am totally confused to get this prompt, which was not in xp model

I'm not sure what you mean by inserting a blank CD/DVD. You would want to use a USB flash drive to do this tutorial with.

It would be best to have a Windows 7 Ultimate ISO file to use to create the bootable USB with.

Which specific steps in which option do you need clarified more? :)

windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

Hi, Those are sub questions, which i have informed in my posts.
I tried your tutorial on another source, i could get the data back to the computer and then followed your tutotial and it was success. To test that , i used plpbt.iso, as i have older system, to test boot from usb. I do not have usb in my bios. Thanks for all the tips.
But one thing, the starting windows bar is somewhat slow before getting to install windows screen. What would be the reason. Is it because of the port of usb, i.e., port version. Or is that something other than that. Normally, the bar moves fast to get in to install windows.
One more query: is the select partition 1 command necessary , after creating primary partition command. in the usb.
Thank you once again.
The general questions have been asked as the show of dialog box, in xp and windows 7, when you put your blank cd or dvd confused me. hope to get replies

If you have USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0, then it would load slower from the USB like that.

Yes, you would want to use select partition 1 in step 9 of Option Three to make sure the correct partition is made active in step 10.

Hi, Thank you very much.

That command select partition 1 in 9th Step, thus make the entire pendrive as active. Is that correct? Please tell , what would be the result, if it is not made active. Pendrive supposed to be active when inserted. Is it not? Pendrive is a storage device, so, your command makes the entire pendrive partition as active. Please
How to know , that my usb is having 2.0 or 3.0. i do not find any mention in the device manager usb ports.
is there any software, that would show, the version of our ports, if those are connected?
Thanking you,

An active device is more likely to show up on the boot menu than one that is not marked as active
It is more likely to prompt to press any key to continue to boot to it automatically too as Rufus adds that feature it the device :)

RE: Manually Create Bootable Windows 7 Installation USB Flash Drive

Option 2 worked for me, using RUFUS and IMGBURN.
I had copied and pasted the Win7 Installation files on my ext HDD, but after it whole process, I now have a bootable Win 7 USB drive.

Good Day,
Hi, Sir. Brink actually I'm new here. I'm really happy that I joined seven forums now I can fixed my issue w/ my laptop but sad to say I still dont get everything. I'm sorry but I was able to create a bootable USB 8Gig with the option 2 then I copied the boot folder from other computer which runs windows 7 then I tried open my laptop but still receiving the error "BOOTMGR is missing". I don't have an option to f8 because my laptop is totally messed up with the VIRUS, HOMEGROUP, MALWARE, FAKE ADOBE, INTEL, MS OFFICE, REMOTE, ETC. I'm trying to resolve this for months and do a research. My BIOS is also messed up does have a BOOT option/menu. Please help me guys and sorry for my bad english.
