I downloaded Windows Vista from Dell. Instead of a normal ISO file, some
.wim files are provided. I followed the instructions to create a USB drive from the files, and came across this error
windows could not determine if this computer contains a valid system volume
which after looking appears to do with the fact that Vista is being installed from a flash drive rather than DVD. I saw the dell site an option for DVD, but it involves instructions like this
To the left will be your Vista folder, to the right make sure, you have checked Make Image Bootable, changed the Developer ID: Microsoft Corporation, load segment: 07C0 and Sectors to load: 4.
with no explanation as to why those settings need to be as they are. So I would like to create a DVD but would like another option if possible.
