Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool

Posted by Awinish on July 9, 2012

My system’s OS was corrupt due to virus attack & i was helpless, because of malfunctioning of my DVD(Blu Ray drive) drive. I decided to buy another DVD drive of the same model, but found its too expensive for the my pocket. My laptop is Sony Vaio & parts of the Sony vaio are too costly. Since, the DVD drive on my system is rarely used & spending money just for installing OS, i was not comfortable to spend the money. Also, if these DVD drives are not been used, you never know how long they will function & requires you to empty your pocket.

I decided to search online what others used to do, when they are into similar situations like me. I found there are options available to install OS using USB/Pen drive. I found a cool utility named Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool which can convert ISO image to a bootable image on the USB drive & the same USB drive can be used to install OS. The utility is very simple & it worked flawlessly for me during conversion of windows 7 ISO to USB bootable image. I also find the tool can also create a bootable Disc too from ISO file.

Steps to create a bootable USB drive are:

  • Download & Install the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool
  • Open the tool by clicking on it.
  • Locate the ISO file of the OS needs to be converted by clicking on the Browse button.
  • Click Next.
  • Connect the USB device. Make sure it is at least 4 GB, if the selected OS is windows 7.
  • Choose a media type by clicking on the USB Device.
  • You will see USB device appears.
  • Finally, click on copying & once done you are ready to use for the OS installtion.

Note: You need to enable boot from  USB or External devices in Bios on the system loaded with new OS.
