windows on USB
« on: September 26, 2013, 08:03:20 PM »
Hi Shane,

    I want to remove my cd rom drive ( I don't ever use it, except to load windows). What is the best way to put my windows 7 home premium sp1 disk on USB?

With the usb tool, there are others as well

And if you ever lose your cd, or if your cd doesnt have SP1 on it already then just grab an ISO from here :-)

At least a 8GB to be safe, 4GB might work, not sure.

I always used 8GB or bigger.
