How to Create Windows 7 Bootable USB From ISO File
Want to create a windows 7 bootable USB drive? If yes then this post is definitely for you.

Gone are the days when we used to install our Windows Operating system on our PCs using Cd/Dvds.

And wait for at least 1 hour to complete the Windows 7 installation process.

But these days USB drives have completely vanished the use of Optical discs.

And also only very few companies are still manufacturing their new generation laptops which include Optical drive as standard hardware.

Although, laptops still have some scope of using these Cd/Dvds but what if you are having a small notebook, tablet or some other digital devices.

And want to install windows 7 on it.

In that case, you need a Windows 7 bootable USB drive and that's why this post is really important for you.

But How would you create it?

Simply Copying/pasting from Windows 7 DVD to a USB flash drive won't help you.

For this, you need to make a special bootable USB device and then safely copy all the Windows 7 installation files to it.

Let's see How.
