How to install Windows 7 from a .iso without burning onto a DVD


Windows 7 doesnot allow you to install off the same Hard Disk. But if you didn't want to burn the .iso image of Windows 7 that you downloaded to a new DVD - you can still install it off the .iso file by using the method below.
You will need a portable hard disk / pen drive though.
Incase, you have a portable hard disk or a pen drive - do the following : 1. Get WinRar (www.rarlabs.com) and install the software on your machine. WinRar is similar to winzip but supports many other formats including .iso. 2. Extract the .iso of Win7 to your pen drive / portable hard disk. Place the extracted files into the root of the drive - your other data can be put into folders. 3. Restart your laptop and hold F9 / F2 to enter into boot-menu which gives you a choice to load from. Here select your pen-drive / portable hard disk - usually a USB device.
Done - that's all it takes. You can now go ahead with the normal install process.

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 .

I just let my credit card information in a few minutes ago.i have a blank hard disk and am rying to install Ubuntu.iso on a hard disk using an emergency disk fom Windows to boot up the system with cd usage. But it want read the dvd?


If you have the 'ubunto.iso' file, you need CD/DVD-writing software to read that ISO file, and to burn that image onto a blank writable disk.

Then, restart your computer, and change the "boot-order" so that the CD/DVD device is the _FIRST_ boot-device. Then, Ubuntu will boot-up, and you can "install" Ubuntu onto your disk-drive.

cant download VersaJette M300 without disk


M300 Vista Driver Image (ISO CD must be made) http://downloads.versacheck.com/download/m300patch/cdvjm300.zip

There are two ways to use the .ISO file: 1. To burn the .ISO file to any CD/DVD use a CD/DVD burning software like Nero, Roxio etc. Then run the CD/DVD to install drivers. or 2. Use a Virtual CD/DVD Drive Software which will allow you to use the .ISO file without burning it to a CD/DVD ROM. This software will create a Virtual CD/DVD drive which can open the .ISO file and let you use it just like a regular CD. Here is a list of some Virtual CD Software titles available: 1. Microsoft Virtual CD Drive Tool Free from Microsoft 2. ISO Buster 3. Deamon Tools 4. Undisker can open and install ISO files-free trial period
