Windows.iso To Flash Drive

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi wonderful people of OCN!

My rig is ready to be overclocked, but first I need to get the operating system on the HDD. I am using a virtual drive program and the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to get the iso onto the flash drive, but it fails to recognize it, let alone start to download.

Any assistance, as always is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Why not copy the files of the ISO into a folder then use the program WinToFlash that copies the files from that folder onto the USB and makes it bootable?

I tried that. The WinToFlash program took 30 minutes trying to format the USB and then said it took to long and failed to transfer the data.

Well, that's interesting... Never had that happen before...
It should take like 10 seconds.

Mount the .iso file with something like Magic Disk and use these command lines in CMD (Make sure you run CMD as admin)

diskpart
list disk
select disk #
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=fat32 quick
assign
exit
xcopy "Drive Letter":*.* /s/e/f "Flash Disk Letter":
