I used Dban to wipe off my HD before selling laptop. But when trying to reinstall windows 7 by booting into USB stick I get the following error:

'c:\multiboot\Windows-7-all-in-one' is not recognized as an internal or external command, followed by x:\Sources>

Please see screenshot: https://photos.app.goo.gl/XYwjboree7FiPZsL8 I know probably related to fact that 'Windows-7-all-in-one' is not official Microsoft version. Is there a way to get past this error? When I type DIR, i get many files and directories.

  • the install script broke, and that was the resulting error message. x:\sources\ is the location of the windows install files. I'd guess that the packaging to get it on the thumbdrive didn't work right. – Frank Thomas May 21 at 0:26
  • Thanks for the response. You were right. Once I redid the thumbdrive it didn't throw that error. Thank you. – polaatx May 21 at 3:57
