I've previously installed Windows 7 w/ this method and am now trying it again w/ build 7127. However I'm running into some problems, basically I can't see the pen drive in BIOS. I go to boot sequence and it's not there.

Any ideas? :toast:

You have to set it so that the USB drive is listed as a Harddrive in the bios.

Oh and thanks for using my guide :)

I'm not sure my BIOS have an option for that. As I say, it worked fine in the past using your method.

Anyway, I got impatient and wasted a DVD :(
