Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Right click and run it as an Administrator.

EDIT: The easiest way to create an MS-DOS bootable pendrive is to use Rufus v 1.1.7 without FreeDOS Support (154KB) Rufus - Create bootable USB drives

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hey-o. Quick'n for y'all. BIOS options all check out to boot, formatted the stick (A PNY 4GIG) with HP tool, PEbuild, and several others. All I get after selecting from the boot menu is a hanging curser, just blinking in the dark. Time goes by, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

Windows 7 (64-bit)

I tried this on a gateway solo 2150 because i accidentally deleted my partition. I made sure removable devices load first, but I keep getting a message that says: Invalid system disk, replace disk and press any key". any suggestions?

I am also getting the same error as reported by someone else:
Remove disks or other media. Press any key to continue.

I followed the (very clear) instructions in this tutorial and I know my laptop can boot from USB as I did so myself just yesterday (it was a Unix boot). Any suggestions?

(Just by the way: I am doing this in an attempt to access the C drive which has become invisible; no luck with Unix)

Windows 7

I can boot up to DOS just fine but it doesn't see the hard drive that is installed. Any suggestions?

Edit: fdisk is not seeing the drive but for some reason presizer can see it.

Hello antiplanki, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The drive letter is not always the same at boot as it is in Windows.

Hope this helps, :)
