Glad you got it installed.


So, Ultraiso worked and MS tool said it was invalid?

Yep exactly. I have to learn more about how computers work haha cuz i love this stuff. I think I might've done somethin weird in vLite when writing the ISO but it still worked after using Ultraiso.

Thanks Zi,

The one I did was just for creating a bootable .iso - a few easy steps - should work fine on both bit versions -better for this purpose

Will link to yours from that - in case they want to be more ambitious of course.

Great tut you did.

Not sure what bios options these oem's allow.

It has to be in there somewhwere - take a look and see if you can find any other settings for usb devices.

Is there something that says "boot from usb hard drive" or or similar?
Hi,
I looked into my BIOS and could not find anything similar. This is how my BIOS looks like:
MAIN
BIOS Version: R0070J4
Sony Vaio VGN-N21S_W
Serial no
uuid
System memory 1GB
Hard disk 120 GB
System time etc

ADVANCED
External Drive Boot: ENABLED
Network Boot: DISABLED

VAIO Animation Logo: Disabled
Speaker volume: 4

SECURITY
Machine Password: CLEAR
User password: clear
Set machine Password
Set User Password
Password when power on: disabled

BOOT
Boot Priority Order:
1. USB Flash
2. Internal Optical Drive
3. Floppy Disk Drive
4. Internal Hard Disk Drive
5. Network

EXIT
save changes etc...

There is NOTHING.. to be honest I've seen few BIOS before and this looks pretty THICK

I can't use DVD boot because my DVD drive is not working and I also don't have a floppy disk drive..

I guess I have to do it the other way

Features

* CD/DVD boot without BIOS support
* USB boot without BIOS support (UHCI, OHCI and EHCI)
* Floppy boot

PLoP - Bootmanager - Free Boot Manager, builtin usb driver, native usb, boot different operating systems, cdrom, usb, freeware, option rom bios

See Harddisk install using the Windows boot menu (2K, XP and VISTA)

further down the page plpgenbtldr-0.7- that is the download.
Or this way:
