    Hello,
    I would like to be able to install Windows Ultimate 7 SP1 x32 from a Corsair 16Gb Flash Voyager drive. I downloaded the Windows 7 utility from M$, installed it. Then, very carefully I went ahead and prepared my Corsair Flash Drive with Diskpart. I did the following commands:


    list disk

    select disk 3 (my USB Corsair 16Gb Flash Voyager drive)

    clean

    create partition primary

    active

    format fs=ntfs label="Win7Ult-SP1-x86-en-US"

    assign

    Note, that I did NOT do a quick format because I tried two other USB boot programs (YUMI 0.0.9.2 & Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.3.0.exe) and they didn't boot to install Win Ult 7SP1. I do have to say that YUMI did boot to the main menu, and when I went to select Win7/8 Install, I got an error message.

    When I booted from my freshly formatted and WinUlt7SP1 copied to the USB flash drive with M$ Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe (v 8.0.7600.16385), I received the same error! The error was:

    File: \Boot\BCD
    Status: 0xc000000e
    Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

    Press Enter to continue.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and/or missing? I would appreciate it very much.
    Thank You. :eek::worthy:
