Free M$ utility to install Windows 7 from Flash drive

Recommended Posts


jrf2027    0

Good to see MS is making a utility to allow installs of Win 7 from a flash drive. Installation is much quicker, and quieter without the DVD drive spinning at full speed.

Anybody know if this works for any Win 7 media, or just media purchased for download from the Microsoft Store?

Thanks for the info. I will pass it to some friends that are still in the process of migrating data before installing Windows 7.

I may not use it because I already have a Win7 source in a dedicated USB stick since the early betas to do unattended installs.

This is not a nice tool but a foolish one.

It must format your flash disk and must make it with ntfs file type.

In fact, xcopy + bootsect can finished this work quickly.

No contribution does it made to the copitablility of USB boot.

The link to the Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe is not there anymore.

The tool requires required .Net, in order to be simple and small.....:whistle:
