I have 2 laptops and want to install Windows 7 on the laptops. I have tried: Download Windows 7 on a USB but didn't work. I think it was caused by: I don't know


You do not need to download Windows onto a USB stick. You will need to save the ISO image first onto your disk drive and use Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (step 1 of the tutorial) to install the ISO image onto the USB stick, making it bootable. This means that you will be able to start your computer by loading from the USB stick, not the internal disk drive; but you have to enable booting up from USB in your BIOS.

To access BIOS, you need to press a key or a key combination during the first few seconds of turning on your laptop, which is described in your manual that comes with the notebook or which can be downloaded online. To find out the manual you need, you will need to locate the model of the laptop and its brand on the body of the laptop. Then, visit the web site of the manufacturer and find the support section where you can enter your model number and look for manuals, This manual will also describe the BIOS menu items that should be modified to let you boot up from a flash drive (usually, it is something like "boot-disk priority").

My laptop does not want to boot correctly. It gives me the boot menu?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, when I select any of the options it gives me the Client Mac ADDR: 14 FE B5 AD 25 3B Guide ; 44454C4c - 4400 - 1046 - 8036 - b3c04f305131 DHCP....... I have tried: Selecting all of the options and pressing F8.. I think it was caused by: There was a disk in the DVD drive that contained the drivers for the USB and a link to Windows 7, so when it started up I think it ran the disk with the link. Now it does not want to boot up.
