with my new Lenovo E145 I am stuck when it comes to installing a fresh Windows 7/ dual boot device.
The laptop has no CD/DVD drive, and had Windows 7 pre-installed. I downloaded an ISO image X17... and put this image on the USB stick. The stick boots fine, but after pressing "Install Windows" - I end up in an endless loop about missing drivers on the stick.
In the BIOS, I've tried to set the SATA driver to "compatibility" mode already, and everything else to "Legacy" - but no luck. The installation boot ends up asking about drivers.
Researching more, I found some hints on using the Windows Deployment Kit. But it is here, where it gets fuzzy for me. The process refers to making an ISO file with drivers out of the initial Windows 7 CD - which I don't have.
How can I make a bootable USB stick?
