The 'USB Boot Prep' tool let's you prepare your USB stick so that you can install Windows Vista/7 from it, your computer does require support to boot from USB for the USB stick to work.

Caution: The 'Full (Format)' button will format everything on the USB stick. W7T will ask if you're sure though.

Yellow: Usually means it is RAW and has not been formatted, not bootable.

Green: This means the drive is already bootable.

Step 1: Plug in your USB stick

This tool won't work without a USB Stick so go ahead and insert one.

Step 2: Select your stick

Hopefully W7T will detect your stick and list it, select the disk/partition you want to be bootable and click start.

Step 3: Select Quick or Full

Quick: This will just mark the partition as 'Active' and convert it to NTFS if needed.

Full: This will 'Clean' the USB stick remove all partitions and data.

W7T will work it's magic and let you know when it's done, once done you just need to copy and paste your installation files onto the USB stick.

Boot from, ie the OS is installed on the External Hard Drive, or Install from, ie the install source is on the External Hard Drive and you are going to actually install to some internal drive in your system?

 

Cheers and Regards

Hi

I have a Prob with a new USB Stick. After inserting the Line was yellow Filesystem "Fat32", Bootable "False", Status "False".  Ater clicking "Quick" the Line turn to "green", Filesystem "Fat32", Bootable "True" but the Status is "False". A test PC did not find a bootable device.

 

Any idea why?

 

:doh:  I did not change Biossettings. :blush:
