Problems of installing Windows 7 from USB.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I encountered problems of installing Windows 7 from USB. Let me describe my procedure to do that and show you what happens as follows.

Procedure to make a bootable USB for Windows 7:

1) Reference the link http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd-on-usb-disk and do the same things step by step.

2) After installing Grub4Dos, Extract and copy all files from DVD ISO of Windows 7 to my USB stick.

3) Edit and add a title for menu.lst under the root of USB stick.

title Install Windows 7

find --set-root /bootmgr

chainloader /bootmgr

An error message is shwon after entering "Install Windows 7" in Grub4Dos:

Windows Boot Manager says Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause etc, etc, then ->

File: \Boot\BCD

Status: 0xc000000e

Info: An error occurred while trying to read the boot configuration data.

Do I miss something to configure Grub4Dos or lacks of instructions to set the MBR of my USB stick? Need your kindly help, thanks a million!

P.S My USB stick works here as an USB-HDD for ASUS P4C800-E motherboard.

My observation these day as follows for your information.

========== My menu.lst ==========

timeout 60

default 3

title Boot from Hard Drive

rootnoverify (hd1,0)

chainloader (hd1,0)+1

title --------------------

root

title Start WAREZ

find --set-root /WAREZ/boot.gz

map --mem /WAREZ/boot.gz (fd0)

map --hook

chainloader (fd0)+1

rootnoverify (fd0)

map --floppies=1

boot

title WAREZ Windows Xp

find --set-root /WAREZ/XPLOADER.BIN

chainloader /WAREZ/XPLOADER.BIN

title Install Windows 7

find --set-root /bootmgr

chainloader /bootmgr

=============================

When I boot my Lenovo Thinkpad R61 with this USB stick, it works fine and Windows 7 can be installed from USB. But it doesn't wrok for my desktop ASUS P4C800-E/Intel 875 chipset Motherboard!

Anyone knows why this situation aries? Does this problem come from BIOS? I am getting confused yet.

:wacko:
