Why do I need to install Vista from a flash drive when there is a disk and drive?
Imagine that in a bag with your laptop or in a pocket there is a 32GB long flash drive 2 cm thick and 5 mm thick, with which you can not only reinstall Windows, but also install the necessary drivers and programs after you and you will understand everything. It is simply irreplaceable on business trips: do not carry a couple of dozen disks with you in case of a system crash.What do you need?
1. USB flash drive with a capacity of 8 to 32GB (even 4GB approached me, since I have an OEM).
2. DVD distribution kit of Microsoft Windows Vista (any will approach, even Home Basic)What to do?
1. open the console (START ->EXECUTE ->CMD) and write in it
2. recruit a command and get a list of disks
3. find a flash drive in the list (I have Disk 1) and select it with the command
4. further in turn we enter commands
5. exit diskpart with the command
6. in the console, type the path to the file bootsect.exe, which is located on the disk with the Vista distribution, the name of this file, a space, / nt60, a space, a flash drive letter, a colon, should turn out like this (I have a drive: d :, and a flash drive - g :):
d: \ boot \ bootsect.exe / nt60 g:
6. rewrite all the contents (including hidden files) of the disk with the Vista distribution on the USB flash driveAnd it's all?
Yes, just copy the drivers and programs you need into it. To boot from it, do not forget to give it priority in the BIOS.
