I have Windows installers that I obtained through my university. The installers come in the form of an .iso archive that contains the setup.exe file and autorun.inf. My notebook does not have a cd burner, nor do I want to go that option. Additionally The .iso archives do not contain any boot info, so some of the other methods I have investigated don't work for me. Currently I am able to boot Windows Vista on my old drive so if there is a process I can do from there that should work. I have a USB stick that is big enough to hold the Vista .iso. So is there a way to make my USB stick install Vista, and how do I do that without the boot files that I would normally obtain from a cd? Thank you.
I am trying to install to a fresh hard drive. I cannot just run the setup from my old drive. It is a notebook so I cannot have one drive be slave.
The installers that I have are not the standard ones from a Windows DVD.
