    Bro let me tell you what I did lol. Downloaded a clean iso, extracted the .iso into a folder so it separated all the parts in the .iso after doing so there will be a bunch of files and a 'setup.exe' file at the end, double click that and Window's 7 will install from your desktop, I'd recommend turning off all antivirus and what not or it'll interrupt the installation like it did for me the first time >.< but now I got Window 7 Ultimate, JUST GOT IT! :D

    EDIT: But yes you can use a flash drive

    @ Rawb, jabben00 does not have OS installed so there is no desktop to run setup from.

    Just a few questions, if you could please help me:

    1. I'm on Vista, wanting a clean install of W7. Do I have to manually format or do anything to my hard drive before beginning installation, or will all that be done during installation?

    2. I forgot where I read this, but I read that you have to take the USB out at some point during the installation, is that true? If so, when?

    3. Is it better to put the loader onto the USB as you say in the tutorial, or is it better to install W7 first and then setup the loader later?

    Thanks.

    1. Just press format.
    2. take out the usb, why? Installing via usb? You might have to remove the usb after first reboot i think it was.
    3. Doesnt matter.

    How to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate from a Genuine Windows 7 Home?

    Right now, I have a genuine Windows 7 Home.
    How to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate from a Genuine Windows 7 Home?

    Can I use the Windows Loader to do that? Or is there other ways to do it?

    I have tons of useful programs installed already and want to save time, so reinstalling the OS is my last resort.
