I was reading Ashraf’s article on installing Windows 7 through a USB, but for whatever reason, I couldnt get either program to work. So I did some research and found UNetbootin.

Despite the devs insisting that it creates only Linux USBs, it really works with any OS. I have personally used it to create a Windows 7 BUSB and it worked perfectly. But what makes it so great is that you can choose a linux distribution from the dropdown list (its a little outdated :frown:), and it will give you a description. THEN it can download and install it to the USB, all automatically. It also supports many live disk utilities and recovery tools. It can install from online or an ISO. It also has a “custom” option, but since I dont know anything about creating linux distros, I wouldnt know how useful it is. All in all, very useful, AND portable (:lol:)

Thanks, that is good info. I still need to make an ISO out of my 3 part Windows 7 install. I was hoping to have the Disk I ordered by now, but I guess they are operating on Microsoft time.
