* Type "active"

* Type "format fs=fat32 quick"

Copying Windows 7 files

● Insert the DVD of seven in your DVD player.

● Also in a command prompt, type "xcopy X:\*.*/s/e/f Y:\" (where X and Y are the letter of your DVD drive and the USB key letter respectively)

● Validate Once the files are copied to the key, simply modify the bios so that the boot sequence takes into account the USB device first. It's over.
