Default How to Install Windows 7 From a USB Drive

It took me about a day of messing around with Linux�s Easy Peasy OS, designed for the EEE netbook, to realize that I wanted anything but Easy Peasy. So I went on a Google search trying to figure out how to get Windows 7 on my netbook without springing for an external optical drive. The answer was obvious; I had to use a flash drive. Now, getting a computer to see a flash drive as a bootable source isn�t easy. You basically have to turn your flash drive into a hard drive with boot sectors, an exact replica of the original Windows CD or DVD. It sounds hard, and unless you know what you�re doing, it is. It took me hours of searching before I came across a forum that had instructions that worked. That�s what I�m sharing with you today.
