    Default Need some info on making a bootable usb

    Hi, I recently tried to load a windows 7 iso to my usb (128gbs) using a free ABUSB utility.

    I had managed to get through to the end, and now I don't know what is wrong, when I try to look at what is in the usb, it says E:\ is not accessible the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. So I'm kinda stuck on what to do next, didn't think it would be this hard to get this done lol. I'm currently on a windows xp sp3 comp. I would post links to the utility, I am not currently allowed to post urls or insert images... any help would be great.

    Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.It can be be especially useful for cases where:

    a)you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, etc.)
    b)you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
    c) you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
    d)you want to run a low-level utility

    Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything as per your requirement.

    Creating a bootable USB stick is not that easy. You need:

    1. A seperate product key for Windows 7 or an Enterprise edition

    2. You need a fast USB3 stick. Forget USB2, it is just too slow.

    3. You need the right procedure.

    I have made bootable Windows 8 systems on USB sticks. The procedure how I did that you can find on my Skydrive. It is a PDF you can either download or view in a PDF enabled browser (e.g. Chrome).
