How to copy data...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was installing windows 7 on my cousins laptop, and I popped the disc into my dads machine and copied all the files (about 4gb) onto the desktop. Is there a way I can make a bootable image from these?

You can create an installer on a usb drive, but I don't think you can boot off of it.

I have ran across a few ways on how to do it in windows,

follow the directions here

You could also use command prompt, from Arts technica

I'm not sure about doing so in linux... let me know if you figure that out.biggrin.gif

Ahha! I found this tutorial on how to create it in a linux distro (Ubuntu).

Use this program as it is 100% free and works great. I went from using Acronis to EaseUS Todo Backup Free and never looked back. Thanks

Make a bootable Windows 7 USB:
  1. Open the Start Menu, type diskpart, press Enter
  2. Type list disk, press Enter
  3. Type select disk X (where X is the number your USB drive shows up as), press Enter
  4. Type clean, press Enter
  5. Type create partition primary, press Enter
  6. Type active, press Enter
  7. Type format quick fs=fat32, press Enter
  8. Type assign, press Enter
  9. Type exit, press Enter
  10. Copy everything from the Windows 7 installation DVD onto the USB key (a simple drag and drop will do; if you have an .iso extract first).
