The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage. They also know when to stop panic. Inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control finance." -Rep Charles Lindbergh, referring to the Federal Reserve System
I want to install Windows 7 on a separation partition but I don't have a DVD drive in my computer. How do I mak a boot thumb drive? It's actually pretty easy:
Insert a thumb drive with at least 3GB space
Format it as NTFS or Fat32
Copy the Windows 7 DVD contents or iso file contents onto the thumb drive
Open a command prompt
change directories to the thumb drive, for example, type E:\
change directories to the boot directory: type cd boot
At the command prompt, type: bootsect.exe /NT60 E:
Where the drive letter E is where my USB drive was mounted.
The only caveat is that the final command to write the boot sector to the thumb drive must be done from a machine of the same architecture. So if you are trying to make a thumb drive with 64-bit windows on it, you have to run that command from 64-bit windows.
