I was trying to boot my pc from usb but it was noot bootable how to make usb drive bootable


Have had loads of usb media, as far as I know some USB sticks are bootable others are not, usually it will say either on the manual or on the box of the product whether its bootable. If it is bootable format the usb drive fully then copy the BOOT.INI, NTLDR, and NTDETECT from the root directory of your PC's boot drive to the flash drive. These files are hidden by default, so you will either have to configure Windows Explorer to show hidden files (including protected operating system files) or you will have to open a Command Prompt window and use the COPY command to copy the files. If you choose to use the Windows Explorer method, then open Internet Explorer and enter C: into the address bar so that you are looking at your local hard drive. Next, select the Folder Options command from the Tools menu. When the Folder Options properties sheet opens, select the View tab. Now, just select the Show Hidden Files and Folders and deselect the Hide Extensions for Known File Types and the Hide Protected Operating System Files check boxes. Click OK to continue.

Now that you have formatted your USB flash drive and installed the boot files onto it, the next thing that you must do is to configure your PC to allow you to boot from the flash drive. This is all done through the computer's BIOS Setup. I can't give you specific instructions for this part, because every computer is different. I can give you a few pointers though.
You can access your computer's BIOS by pressing a specific key immediately after you turn the PC on. The key varies, but it is usually either [F1], [F2], or [Delete]. Once you are in the BIOS Setup, you should verify that all of your computer's USB options are enabled. This might include things like support for legacy USB devices or support for USB 2.0. If there is a time out setting for USB devices, you should set it to the max to insure that the system doesn't time out while waiting on the USB device to boot.
Next, find the section on boot device priority. Normally, a USB flash drive (which is usually listed as USB-HDD, but may be listed as a removable device) will have a very low boot priority. If the USB flash drive's boot priority is lower than the hard disk (listed as HDD) then the only time the computer would ever boot off of the USB flash drive is if the system were to fail to boot from the hard disk. You must therefore rearrange the boot device priority so that the flash drive has a higher priority than the hard drive.

I need the driver for wd2500me-00,usb external hard disk


The folks over at WD said:



There are no downloadable USB, Firewire, or eSATA drivers available. WD external drives install using the resident USB and Firewire drivers that come in Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2, Vista, and Mac 10.4 and 10.5. If the drivers are not installing when you connect the WD drive, or you are having driver issues, you will need to contact Microsoft or Apple for their recommendations.

I will search further if you like, just let me know.
Try the old, disconnect (the drive form the computer), reboot, reconnect, reboot once again and see if it picks up the way it was meant to.
Hope this has been of help please leave rating
thank you.

This will walk through the steps to create a bootable USB flash drive for the purpose of installing a Vista or Windows 7 OS. These instructions assume that you have a computer with Windows Vista installed on it.
Required:
· USB Flash Drive (4GB+)
· Microsoft OS Disk (Vista / Windows 7)
· A computer running Vista / Windows 7
Step 1: Format the Drive
The steps here are to use the command line to format the disk properly using the diskpart utility. [Be warned: this will erase everything on your drive. Be careful.]
Plug in your USB Flash Drive
Open a command prompt as administrator (Right click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select “Run as administrator”
Find the drive number of your USB Drive by typing the following into the Command Prompt window:
diskpart
list disk
The number of your USB drive will listed. You’ll need this for the next step. I’ll assume that the USB flash drive is disk 1.

Format the drive by typing the next instructions into the same window. Replace the number “1” with the number of your disk below.
select disk 1
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=NTFS
assign
exit
When that is done you’ll have a formatted USB flash drive ready to be made bootable.

Step 2: Make the Drive Bootable
Next we’ll use the bootsect utility that comes on the Vista or Windows 7 disk to make the flash drive bootable. In the same command window that you were using in Step 1:
Insert your Windows Vista / 7 DVD into your drive.
Change directory to the DVD’s boot directory where bootsect lives:
d:
cd d:\boot

Use bootsect to set the USB as a bootable NTFS drive prepared for a Vista/7 image. I’m assuming that your USB flash drive has been labeled disk G:\ by the computer:
bootsect /nt60 g:

You can now close the command prompt window, we’re done here.
Step 3: Copy the installation DVD to the USB drive
The easiest way is to use Windows explorer to copy all of the files on your DVD on to the formatted flash drive. After you’ve copied all of the files the disk you are ready to go.
Step 4: Set your BIOS to boot from USB
This is where you’re on your own since every computer is different. Most BIOS’s allow you to hit a key at boot and select a boot option.
I used these instructions to get my new Dell Mini 9 laptop loaded with Windows 7 (the PDC bits). HTH.

I need to know how can I boot from my usb flash thanks


You need to know if your motherboard can do this option.
Enter setup otion generaly when you turn your computer on press the DEL key and you are in the BIOS SETUP configuration. Go to the BOOT SEQUENCE and if it is possible choose USB option.Place this option on the first place with the UP or DOWN keys. For exemple fist boot drive : USB second boot drive HDD ,...
You must format your USB device as SYSTEM ! and have the system installed on it. You can find on the Web a light version of WINDOWS XP called LIGHT to put it on your USB device I think it is an USB flash drive, Is it?
If it is an external HDD you can install the entire system of Windows and boot by it bur select the right boot sequence in the BIOS setup.
