Burn ISO to HDD or SSD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would it be possible to burn a windows installer iso to an internal drive and then boot from it to install windows on another drive? I want to get rid of my cd drive lol and don't like usb thumb drives for installers.
Thanks!

...I don't get it. Why would you not like USB thumb drives for an installer? A 8GB thumb drive is a lot cheaper and easier than a HDD or SSD.
Once again...

Just open the case and plug in the cd drive when you need it. It's what I do and it can be a little inconvenient but the fact is I only use it when installing windows and that's not often. Can keep the front of my case looking nice and clean then. smile.gif

I just have a bunch of issues using flash drives, most liekely user error though. I also have a couple of spare HDDs lying around.

I might just end up doing this. Or buying a cheap external DVD burner.
