How to make a bootable Windows 7 USB stick

Today I will show you how to install Windows 7 without using a DVD.  Yep today we are going to make a bootable Windows 7 USB stick.  This comes in really handy when you are installing Windows 7 onto netbooks or computers that don’t have DVD drives.  It is also a lot quicker than DVD installations too!!

The first thing we need to do is download a piece of software called  Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool from the Microsoft website.  Once downloaded and installed you should get the following screenshot.

Choose the location of your ISO file and click next.  On the next screen you will be asked to choose your media type.  Pick USB device.

You will then be asked to pick your USB device and when you have done so click Begin Copying.  This installs the ISO image onto the USB stick and makes it bootable.
