Tech Tip: Create Bootable USB Pen Drive for Windows 7

In this post, I will show you how to load the Windows installation on to your USB flash drive and make it bootable just like the DVD.

There are Several Options:
1. Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool
2. Basic Option
3. Using PowerISO tool
1. Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool:

 Step1: Just Download this Tool using Link1 or Link2
 Step2: Install in your Desired PC,
 Step3: then follow some easy Steps
2. Basic Option:

Tools Required:
1. USB flash drive with a minimum capacity of 4 GB.

2. Windows 7 Setup DVD. 


Step 1 : Plug-in your USB flash drive.

Step 2 : Open the Command Prompt (or use PowerShell). If you are using Windows 7/Vista then open it with administrator rights*.
* Goto Start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->Windows PowerShell ->  Right-click on “Windows PowerShell” and select “Run as Administrator”.
Step 3: In the cmd, type

DISKPART
This will start window as below

Give the following command:
LIST DISK

This will show you a list of  available disks on your system. Disk 0 is usually the hard disk. In my case, Disk 1 is the USB drive (this can be a different one in your case). Now Give the command as shown below:

 SELECT DISK 1

above command, 1 is the USB drive number on my system. If you have a different number on your system, then you need to replace 1 with that number.

Step-4: Now issue the following list of commands one by one as shown below:

CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
ASSIGN
EXIT

Close Power Shell and proceed to the next step.
Step 5: Insert the Windows 7/Vista installation disc and note down the “drive letter” of your DVD drive. In my case, it is “H:”.

Open the command prompt. If you are using Windows 7/Vista then open it with administrator rights*.
* Goto Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right-click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run as Administrator”.

Now type the following list of commands as shown below:
H:
CD BOOT
BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 G:(NOTE:
G: is your USB drive letter)

EXIT

Step-6: Copy the contents of your Windows 7/Vista installation disk into the USB flash drive.
Directly Copy-Paste All DVD file into Usb Stick.

Your USB stick is now ready to boot and install the OS for you.


3. Using PowerISO tool

Step1: Download the PowerIso Tool.
Step2: Make .iso file with WIN7 Os installation files.
Step3: Now, In powerISO Select Tools-> Create Bootable USB.
Step 4: Select the .iso file created.
Step5: After finishing the process, It’s done.
Don’t forget to enable the “USB Boot” option and change the “Boot priority to USB device from hard disk” in your BIOS settings.
