How to Boot and Install Windows 7 from a USB (even without an ISO file)


While searching in internet I found 3 ways of doing this thing. I will explain all of them here.
1st Method: (The simple one) * Requires a valid ISO image.
Download Microsoft's official tool to install Windows 7 from your USB stick.
Links below:
From CNET: http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-U...?tag=mncol;pop
MS Store: http://images2.store.microsoft.com/p...B-DVD-tool.exe - Microsoft Store Info Here.
To install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool:


  1. Click to open the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool installation file.
  2. When you are prompted to either save the file to disk or run it, choose Run.
  3. Follow the steps in the setup dialogs. You'll have the option to specify where to install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
Note: You need to be an administrator on the computer you are installing the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool on. The tool requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher.
2nd Method: (Reliable method, Supports multiple types of image files) Requirements:
Now insert the USB drive, run UNetbootin, and select Disk Image as ISO( or select the type of image file of which you have).
Browse your local drive for Windows 7 that you downloaded and click Open.
Now Select Type as USB and choose the drive.Once done, it will look like a bit similar to the screenshot shown below.

unetbootinmainwindows77.png Click OK and it will begin extracting all installation files to the USB drive. The whole process will take some time(10-15 minutes), so have patience.
Once the installation is complete, reboot your computer. Now while your system is starting up press the appropriate button(usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, Backspace, or Escape) to bring up Bios Boot Menu. Change the startup order to boot USB by default, usually you will have to press F6 to move the selected USB device on top. Once done, save changes and restart the system.
3rd Method:( Try this if both above methods are not working) Using Ultra ISO application.
1) Download the free UltraISO trial by clicking on this
2) Start UltraISO as administrator
3) "Burn" the iso image to the USB stick by following these steps
With UltraISO:
- Open the image of Vista/Win7 with UltraISO
- Under BOOTABLE tab choose WRITE DISK IMAGE
- Choose your USB stick under "Disk Drive"
- Choose a method (It's recommended to use USB-HDD+)
- Press Write
PS: Make sure to change your BOOT order in BIOS to boot from your USB drive first.

Hi, I would recommend that we first establish what your USB drive is actually registering as with the computer. Assuming that you're running a Windows operating system - Go into My Computer or "Computer" on Windows Vista, 7, or 8, and then right-click on your USB drive and select Properties. On the General, it should tell you the total capacity of the USB drive. The capacity should have a number displayed in "bytes" which is long - and then a second number which is short - like "4GB" or "8GB". It would help to know what these numbers are.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

Unfortunately it seems you USB drive has had a critical failure. If it is less than 1 year old, you can contact the manufacturer for a replacement. USB drives, like any other drive, should always be backed up. If you would be lost or dismayed by loosing the information, back it up somewhere and maybe even two or three somewheres.

Why my acer e500 cannot install 64 bit window 7 it say no driver when need to choose hard disk to install


you need to install Uli sata drivers in order for your motherboard to recognize the harddrive and cd drive.

download the drivers here: http://www.soft32.com/download_184082.html

and put them on a cd or memory card, when the system prompts you that you have no harddrive, you can load the drivers from a memory card or cd however if you use a cd you will face other issues. then you will be able to install windows 7 ;)

I did it on my acer e500 and it runs good.
I didn't install the 64 bits version though but the 32 bits.

for all the people saying that his pc is too old: if the pc can run under vista, it runs better under windows 7
