My friend having a similar problem came to me, he was not having any optical media drive in hp Mini laptop.

Here is the whole guide to create Windows 7 USB installation


Preparing the USB drive

  • Format the pen drive in NTFS file system and copy all the data of Windows Installation DVD into USB drive.
  • Click on start and click Run… Type cmd and press enter. Run cmd as administartor.
  • Now open the USB drive, for example J: drive is my USB drive, I’ll type J: and press enter.
  • Type-
    cd boot
    bootsect /nt60 J: /force
