Install Windows 7 from your thumb driveDamien Moye
With the release of Windows 7, Microsoft has seen something of a resurgence in its standing, delivering on promises that past versions of their operating system has failed to fulfill. Microsoft offers users the opportunity to download an .ISO image of Windows 7. This is convenient if you have a netbook to which you’d like to install the program.
If you’re looking for a quick and painless way of simply taking that .ISO image and installing it with a thumb drive, which is particularly useful if you want to use Windows 7 with a netbook, the following tool will allow you to do so.
Called the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool , this utility creates a bootable flash drive – or, if you so choose, a DVD –from the .ISO image, taking just a few steps to have a quick solution for whenever you wish to install Windows 7. For those using a flash drive, you’ll require one with a capacity that’s equal to or greater than 4GB.
This is a quick solution for installing Windows 7 on your netbook, but it’ll also prove helpful if you’re someone who opted to download Windows 7 from Microsoft rather than order the installation DVD.
