Bootable U.S.B need help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i lost my windows disk and i am going to build a new computer so i decided to get an ISO file and boot off of a U.S.B  however i have had nothing but troubles, i have tried 2 different bootable USB programs (rufus, and flash2boot or something like that) and each one gives me an error (on rufus this read: ERROR reading UDF file) I then tried to do it manually but what was once a 3GB download has suddenly become a 832KB file?!?!?!?

 

If someone could find my error or atleast post another method to booting off of a usb that would be great ( I also read that some ISOs are corrupt if thats true can someone post an ISO link)

 

Thank you :D

 

windows 7 preferably

I had a similar issue with the UDF file rubbish, I think you need to mount the image then re-save it as an ISO with a certain parameter - can't remember what exactly it was, I'll have a look around.

Hope it helps!

The program from windows does not work with non genuine license.

These are all the links to download Windows 7 ISOs from Microsofts Digital River file hosting. These ISOs will not work without a legitimate license, instead installing a 30 day trial and are completely legal to download:

You can use the MS software that others have linked above, but I have found that Rufus can get past some errors that this software encounters. If you have any more issues please just ask :)

Download the Windows 7 ISO from here and use rufus to burn it to a usb drive.

 

I got windows 7 from the same source and used rufus aswell to install it to my usb drive

Try running Rufusas admin, unless it already prompts you to do that anyway. In which case, I'm sorry and I dont know
