Install Windows 7 From Custom USB Flash Drive

With the backlash and failure of Vista, Windows is quickly moving to Windows 7.  This OS is focused on correcting all the Vista short comings, while providing a faster operating system and speedy USB enumeration. However, upgrading or installing Windows 7 from a DVD takes a long time.  You can speed up the process by putting the Windows 7 ISO file on a USB stick and install from there.

The guys at Think Computers, put together a nice tutorial.  The USB tutorial covers the placement of Win7 on a custom USB flash drive, then doing a complete install from the UFD. Windows 7 is about 2.5GBs so make sure you have a 4GB flash drive before you think about starting this process. I read through the tutorial, it isn’t hard and not complicated.  I’d give her a shot myself but I don’t have the luxury to devote a PC to this project.  So I’m passing it along. Windows 7 is currently in Beta mode and available for Free to anyone willing to test her out. Source:  Think Computers.
