I have a notebook Fujitsu s7211. Recently my DVD Rome is out of order (cannot read DVDs). I recently needed to install OS (Windows 7) and I thought of doing that using a flash drive of 8GB. In order to make my flash drive Bootable I used DOS "diskpart" and tried to create a primary partition. Everything was going fine. When I made the command "format fs=NTFS" and tried to "assign" something went wrong and it did not work. Now the problem is that my windows cannot recognize my Pen drive. When I am inserting it and trying go inside it says, "please insert a disk into Removable disk (j)". I tried to format it but it says, "Windows was unable to complete the format". I also tried it using DOS however it did not work. I don’t know what to do. Can you help me with this problem??
OS Setup using a flash drive
There's actually an easier way to do what you want.
Download "Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool". A quick Google search will yield several sites you can download it from. It's free from Microsoft.
What you'll need:
1. Flash drive (with at least 4GB free space)
2. .iso file of your Windows 7 installer. If you have it on DVD, you will have to use ImgBurn or some other CD burning program to convert it to *.iso format.
Once you have "Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool" installed, click on it's icon and follow the instructions given by the tool.
If you follow the instructions correctly and everything goes well, your flash drive should now be ready to use. Don't forget to set your BIOS to boot from USB so you can boot from your flash drive.
Hope this helps.
