    Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit


    Finally got the Windows developer download.
    I used "Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool" burn it onto my 8GB USb drive. I boot from it and it stuck on the choose drive. It says I don't have a drive that contains something. My laptop has only 320Gb. When I install Windows 7, I cut it to a C: and a G: (why use G:? because the C: is used on the cd drive for some reason)
    Do I really need to make a partition before installing it? and how do I make it? I tried to shrink my G: which is the largest, but it says do not have enough space.

    I get this error
    "No Device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers and then click ok."
    This is for my USB

    For my DVD, I got black screen after pressing any key to boot it.

    I'm pretty sure it's looking for a C drive. you may need to rename your drives so C; is your boot Drive.

    It mix it up. In Windows 7, my boot drive is C:, for some reason, my G: also has a folder call "user", "ProgramData" and I file call "bootmgr".
