Install Windows 7 through USB on PC without DVD / CD – Download Tool

We have earlier written many articles on how to install Windows 7 through USB & how to install Windows XP through USB all of which are bit lengthy options. While in this article we will be giving you a new tool by Microsoft which helps you in installing the OS on a netbook without CD/DVD Drive within a few minutes.

System Requirements :

  • Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended
  • 50MB of free space on your hard drive
  • DVD-R drive or 4GB removable USB flash drive

Once its installed you need to run the USB Tool and you will get the option to Choose ISO File from your computer or the Optical Drive.
