How to Make Bootable Pen Drive of Wondow 7

This guide will outline making a bootable USB flash drive with Windows XP, Vista, or 7. Before we begin, it is important to note that the computer you want to use your bootable USB drive must have the ability of booting to a USB drive. Most computers built since Windows Vista was released are capable of booting to a USB device. Prior to the Windows Vista time frame, it's hit or miss with motherboards.

To determine if a computer is capable of booting to a USB device, access the computer's BIOS and check the bootable device list. If a USB device is listed, set the USB drive to be the first boot device. If you do not see a USB device in the list of bootable devices, your BIOS is not capable of booting to a USB device.

Note: You may need to have your USB flash drive plugged in when you access the BIOS).

Windows Vista and Windows 7 users

To make a bootable USB drive for Windows Vista or Windows 7, you need to have Windows Vista or 7 installed on your computer. It is recommended that you have a flash drive of at least 4 GB in size, in order to store all the necessary files.

Tip: Before you start, plug in the USB drive and backup any files you have stored on the USB drive. The drive will be formatted during this process and all files on it will be deleted.

Note: You need to have a Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD for these instructions to be successful.
  1. Open an elevated Windows command line window by clicking Start, typing in cmd in the search text field, then pressing CTRL + Shift + Enter on your keyboard (at the same time). You can also access this by navigating to Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click with your mouse on the Command Prompt menu item and select Run as Administrator.
  2. At the command prompt, type cd c:\windows\system32 to change the directory to the Windows system32 directory. Ensure your USB drive is plugged in, type DISKPART, then press Enter. Type LIST DISK and press Enter.
  3. You will see a listing of the disk drives connected to your computer. Find the disk number of    your USB drive and type SELECT DISK [USB disk #], where "[USB disk #]" is the disk # for your USB drive. It should now state that your USB drive is the selected disk. If you're not sure what disk is the USB disk, eject the USB drive, perform step number 2 again, connect the USB drive again, and compare the results. Usually the USB drive will be the last drive.
  4. Type in the following commands, one by one, pressing Enter after each command.
FORMAT FS=NTFS  (may take a couple minutes, depending on the USB drive size)
Keep the command prompt window open, but you can minimize it for a little bit.

      5. You will now need your Windows Vista or 7 Installation DVD. Put the DVD in your        
         computer's DVD drive. Open up My Computer and note which drive letter is assigned to your  
         DVD Drive and your USB flash drive.
      6. Go back to the command prompt window and type in D: CD BOOT (substitute your DVD                   drive letter for "D:", if necessary) and press Enter. Type CD BOOT again and press Enter.                   Lastly, type BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H: (substitute your USB flash drive letter for "H:", if
          necessary) and press Enter.
       7. The last step is to copy the entire contents of the Windows DVD to your USB flash drive. To
           do this, in the My Computer window (opened in step 5 above), right-click on the DVD drive
           and select Open to view the contents of the DVD. Copy all the files and folders on the DVD to            the USB flash drive.

Your USB flash drive is now set up to be a bootable USB drive for Windows XP using the Bart PE interface.

  1. Use Microsoft's own Windows USB/DVD download tool to create a bootable drive you can install Windows from. You'll need a Windows installer ISO file to run this tool.Also i need to add some information.The mobile environment changed the concept of phonebooks, making it more difficult to identify unknown callers and reconnect with those whose information you've misplaced.Tracking mobile numbers has become very important for us because we all are flooded with many marketing calls, SMSs and fraud calls.
