install windows 7 without cd rom?(without 4gb usb drive) - Page 3

post #21 of 35
I unplugged my DVD drive about 2 weeks ago because i needed to back up a hard drive, i haven't missed it yet. I need to burn a CD to put in my car though but that's the first time i've needed it.

It's going the way of the floppy disk drive.

I use another PC to burn CD's.

It is very easy.

  • Make an .iso image of your Windows 7 DVD with an app like imgburn
  • Install and run that tool
  • Select your .iso
  • Select your USB flash drive
  • Wait for it to finish copying files over
Now you have a bootable copy of Windows 7 on your flash drive! Make sure your hard drives and boot order are correct in BIOS before you install.
