Was anxious to get rid of Vista, but it brought me problems, like the capture card that does not work with 7.
I installed 7 on multiple computers using the tips I read this forum. Always via USB stick.
You're welcome. I hope it goes smoothly.

Hello Fernando,

What is preventing you from being able to use it? Any errors?

Sure, you could use OPTION TWO to create one for Vista as well if you like. The tutorial below has specifc details for Vista instead to help better.

Thank's again.
The first few times I installed 7, the program did not recognize the .ISO file. Today's error I can not remember in details, but I can try again and post here a print screen.

You may have a corrupted ISO file, and may need to download a new copy.

I do not think it is.
Always used the same ISO file unpacked to install 7 using that tutorial I mentioned. And it worked. Just does not work using the procedure of the program from microsoft, and I've read several reports of people in the same situation.

The error message this time was this:

More questions: I want to install vista on the external hd, but was wondering if I need to create a partition specifically for him in hd?
Another: He will not format my external hd to install?

Fernando,

You will not be able to install Vista to external HDDs unless it's and eSATA HDD connected via SATA and not USB to the motherboard.

Hum... So should I just create a new partition for him?

That would be much easier for you if you have enough HDD space to do so.
