Install Windows 7 from USB/External Hardisk

We are not much into installing Windows via a USB Device(we were had no need). Now Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) can be downloaded as an .iso file (A standard disk image format).

If you dont have a DVD Drive(Who uses a DVD Drive Now!!!), dont worry. You are a minute away from knowing how to install Windows without DVD Drive or with USB or what ever it may be( Dont chop my flow).

Before starting make up your BIOS to allow your USB deivce to Boot.


1. Insert you External HDD or USB Drive

2. Right Click MyComputer.

3. Click Manage.

4. Scroll Down and Select Disk Management.

5. Now Extract the Windows .iso file to the Exteernal Drive (Magic ISO, Ultr ISO can do the Job)

(Warning : Dont mount the .iso file in an Emulation Drive and Copy the Contents. That wont work as the boot record wont get Copied)

6. Right Click your USB Device and Select Mark Active Partition.

(Warning : Do this Only if you are going to install atonce you do this step. Else YOur Current Wont boot as the Active Partition is Moved. If you Planned to install later do this step later)

7. Now Reboot the System , the Installation Should Work Fine.

Difference Between Cloudy Vision and Blurred Vision

Blurred Vision:

If the Sharpness of the Image goes of, its blurred Vision. The image appears like its is not Clear and details wont be clear enough to analyze what is what. In the worst case, the Shape of the Image goes blurred, even a Cow appear as an ATM Machine

Cloudy Vision:

Cloudy vision means
Consider a glass of water , add a drop of Milk in it.
Then see how it looks.
That is how you would see the world. The whole thing is clear but you would see a Mild Screen.
