Windows 8 – Boot from USB disk

Now you can create bootable USB for Windows 7 or Windows 8. Microsoft has released a new tool for this task to achieve

  • First download an ISO file of your Windows 7 onto your media
  • Download the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (This is a onetime process)
  • Run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

The advantage to following this process and creating bootable media is that it allows you to install Windows 7 without having to first run an existing operating system on your machine. If you change the boot order of drives in your computer’s BIOS, you can run the Windows 7 installation directly from your USB flash drive or from a DVD when you first turn your computer on.

System Requirements

  • You need to be an administrator on the computer you are installing the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool.
  • The tool requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher.
  • This tool requires the USB flash drive to be completely blank before the Windows 7 files are copied.  This helps ensure that the device is bootable after the copying has completed.
  • Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended).
  • 50MB of free space on your hard drive.
  • DVD-R drive or 4GB removable USB flash drive.

Enjoy!!!
