    Nice little walk-through on making a USB stick bootable to install an OS from.

    Just came across this nice little walk-through on making a USB stick bootable to install an OS from on the SpiceWorks community and thought it might be useful:

    Configure a USB drive to be bootable (useful for installing the OS) - Spiceworks Community

    The bit at the bottom is interesting where he says he "was able to install Windows 7 x64 on an HP Elite 7000 in just under 7 minutes from first boot to desktop".....I've a got a 7000 at home so I'm going to do a comparison tonight.

    This also works for Vista too.

    By the way, if you want to save a bit of time use FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK for Step 10.

    use the HP USB tool.

    if you wan to install fresh over the network ....
    have a look at ( Ultimate Deployment ) then use autoIT to finish the install.

    it will install Windows XP/2000/2003+R2 and Linux. and if you have OEM CDs put therm all on there like i have for ACer PC's , IBM Laptops, Tosh Laptops, Dell laptops, HP USFF PC's.
    there working on Vista and Windows 7 and 2008+R2.

    or go to bootland and look for install from USB it will do XP and Vista so you can have 1gb for XP 2k/3/R2 and 4 GB for vista, Win 7 , 2k8/R2
    small bat file But cool..
