Whats the best and easiest way for creating a Windows 7 USB Flash drive on Windowx XP?
My computers heavily infected, and so I have to create a Windows 7 USB drive on a Cyber Cafe which has only Windows XP Professional SP1s and SP2s.
I used Novicorp WinToFlash to copy Windows 7 along with SP1 to my 4GB USB drive. I used the wizard and advanced tab, and at both times the amount of files copied was around 600MB.
Whats the best method that do not require administrator privileges and simple to be done on a Cyber Cafe?
And did WinToFLash work?

Finally got a new laptop harddrive, need some help before I swap them.
As the title says, I ordered a new HDD for my HP G62 laptop and it finally came in. I just have a few questions before I swap them.
I already know how to physically swap the harddrives, but I'm unsure as to how I go about reinstalling my OS and drivers properly. I'm currently using windows 7, and as far as I know it's legit, although if someone can tell how to find out for sure I'd appreciate it. EDIT: Googled this, used the "Activate Windows" Option from the control panel and it said it was genuine.
I have a 4GB USB Drive that I want to put the install for Windows 7 on, so when I put the new harddrive in it boots from the flash drive and installs windows 7. But I don't know how to do this, and I don't know where to find my registration key for windows 7 to re-enter when I install the OS.
Also, after the OS is installed and all, what do I do about my drivers for graphics card/etc.? Will they automatically detect and update or is that something I'd have to do manually?
Sorry for the lengthy post, hopefully someone can help me out. Some step by step directions would be awesome.
And a last note, I've already backed up my files and it's ready to go.
Thanks in advance!
