    I am no expert and infact I have NEVER used Daemon Tools..

    Now forgive me but this is just a image mounting tool, is it not ?

    Surely this needs Windows to mount an image. I can not imagine how windows could mount an image and install a new copy of itself.

    You have a machine without any USB slots ? What is it ?

    Make a 4GB partiton on the HDD, extract setup files from ISO to there, run setup from Sources folder for clean install, run setup from root for upgrade

    Do you mean creating a bootable partition on the HDD with install files and installing to the same drive? Fu***** brilliant idea! I hope it works as that would mean the end of redundant media (FDD, CD/DVD, SD cards, USB HDD etc.) for installation.
    I gotta try it.... LOLOLOLOLO

    Done did it and it works a charm. Problem occured when booting to Windows 7 and making Windows partition as active. The boot manager was still on the bootable install partition and I didn't really think to change it while within Windows 7. Obviously there was boot manager issues at next boot. lol Any quicker way to fix the boot issues than google. :popcorn:
    I have an Win 7 AIO OEM installer (with WinRE for x64 [thanks MDLF!:vertag:]) that I use for work (which I used). Can't remember what bootmgr is used.
    Anyway; think I've found an aternative way to install Win 7 (at least) sans external medium. Thanks OP for bringing this up....
    Coolest s*** I ever saw.:eek:
    Thanks MDLF.
    Word!

    Edit: Thanks for the link; quicker than google...
    "Preparing the partition to make it bootable

    Open the command prompt and run this:

    x:

    cd /boot

    bootsect /nt60 X:
    (x being your partition) "


    Edit: Above did not work. Looking for an easier way to move bootmgr within new install.
    Any help with this as I am but a lowly hardware geek with a twist of who the f*** cares.
