How to Setup a USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 7

If you have a netbook and would like to upgrade it to Windows 7, you may be wondering how to do it without an external DVD Drive. Netbook computers are typically shipped without CD drives to facilitate their smaller size and lower price tag and require installation of Windows 7 from a USB flash drive. Installing Windows 7 from a flash drive is essentially the same as installing it from a DVD. Most of the work is setting up your flash drive so it becomes a boot-able device with the OS on it.If you want to create shortcut key in windows 7 then follow my blog-How to Set Shortcut Keys in Windows 7  ,which i have discussed in same blog. 

Step1: If you have an ISO image of Windows 7, using Microsoft’s free utility is a quick and easy option to get the image on your USB flash drive. Otherwise Open your Web browser and download Microsoft's USB/DVD Tool from the microsoftstore.com website.
