Hello, I'm in a pretty hard situation with booting through USB and it's quite hard to explain but at the moment what I need to know for succeeding with the installation. Creating a portable Windows 10/8/7 on a USB drive is widely common in order to use the OS with any computer. Generally, you can use Windows to Go and third-party software to get it done. But considering the limit of Windows to GO, you are recommended to create a portable Windows on a USB drive using EaseUS Todo Backup. Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files) If you need to install or reinstall Windows 7 you can use this page to download a disc image (ISO file) to create your own installation media using either a USB flash drive or a DVD.
Recently, I got a new laptop with Windows 8 and I want to install Windows 7 on it. Usually we use a DVD drive to install Windows 7 on our computer. Unfortunately, this is not the solution for my laptop, as it does not have a DVD drive. Thus, I tried to create a bootable USB stick that can also boot in UEFI mode, but so far I have not been successful. So my question is, if anyone knows how I can put the Windows 7 ISO on my USB stick so that I can use it to install Windows 7 on a UEFI computer?
Did you run into the similiar situation? By default, the Windows 7 installation ISO does not support UEFI boot, so the bootable USB installation drive created with the Windows 7 installation ISO does not support UEFI boot. To create a bootable Windows 7 installation USB drive, the program must make changes to the content extracted from the ISO. Now WinToUSB releases a new feature called 'Windows Installation USB Creator' which allows you to create a Windows 7 installation USB drive with a few simple steps, with this feature you can create a Windows installation USB drive to install Windows 7 on both Traditional BIOS and UEFI computers by using the same USB drive. Please note that only 64-bit Windows 7 supports UEFI boot, so you cannot use a 32-bit Windows 7 to create a UEFI bootable USB installation drive.
Tutorial to use with WinToUSB to create an UEFI bootable Windows 7 installation USB drive to install Windows 7.
Step 1. Connect the destination USB flash drive to the computer with an installed copy of WinToUSB.
Step 2. Run WinToUSB as administrator.
Step 3. Click 'Tools' > 'Windows Installation USB Creator'.
Step 4. Click the button and select the Windows 7 installation ISO from the open dialog box.
Step 5. Select the USB drive in the drop-down list. If your USB drive is not correctly recognized by WinToUSB, you need to click the button for the program to recognize the USB drive. After you select the USB drive, a pop-up will appear asking you if you want to format it to continue.
Step 6. Click 'Yes'. After clicking 'Yes', WinToUSB begins formatting. Please wait until that format operation is complete.
Step 7. After successfully formated the USB drive, click 'OK', WinToUSB begins creating the Winddows installation USB drive.
Step 8. Click 'OK' when the creation is complete.Follow these simple steps, you can create a UEFI bootable Windows 7 installation USB flash drive from a Windows 7 installation ISO with WinToUSB easily, then you can use this bootable USB drive to install Windows 7 on both Traditional BIOS and UEFI computers.
