    I think your guide looks really nice jlgager.

    I did some search here at the forum and found a similar guide that covered this:

    Code:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7850-Installing-Windows-7-From-USB-Drive-3-Steps-Easy-Process
    and

    Code:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126-The-Official-Windows-7-Repository
    See section Part 3 of 4: Install Windows 7 which also provides the link to the above.

    Though I must say I think you got it a little more covered and detailed.

    Great work.

    No unfortunately not, I'm just lurking around over there.
    It's a great forum though no question about it, great posts about everything.
    I usually hang around here for most part.

    A couple of Win 7 pre-installation questions.

    1) In the MDL website to download the 3 files prior to installation, it is not clear whether this is an upgrade or a full installation kit.

    2) If it is a full installation kit, does anyone know whether Microsoft licensing checks whether the activation key is valid for an upgrade or a brand new (full) installation? In my case, I bought an upgrade key and but would like to install Win 7 in a completely new partition if possible as my XP system is running nicely without problems.

    Thanks.

    So its not clear what it is?

    1: Full of course...
    2: what? then do a new install and use your key. No problemo eh?

    Thanks for giving the loader a mention but just one thing, I changed it's name from "Windows 7 Loader" to plain "Windows Loader" due to it's Vista and Server compatibility :p

    Could you give the original links to the ISO downloads on The Pirate Bay?

    So if I install Windows 7 on my friend's computer and they are currently running Vista, I can select to upgrade and they'll be able to keep all of their stuff?
