Installing Windows 7 through USB drive

February 22, 2009 Leave a comment


Open the command prompt and do the following procedures

  • Run select disk 1 where the "1" is actually the corresponding number of your USB drive.
  • Run clean.
  • Once the thumb drive is clean, you can run create partition primary.
  • Now make the partition active by entering active
  • Then you need to set up the file system as Fat32 by running format fs=fat32 quick (quick, of course, specifies that you want to perform a quick format to speed up the process).
  • Entering the assign command gives the USB drive a drive letter, making it easy to access from Windows Explorer
  • Then you can copy everything from the Windows 7 installation DVD onto the USB key (a simple drag and drop will do).
  • Now you can insert the thumb drive into the system you want to install Windows 7 onto and boot the system. The installation will now proceed as usual—but faster.
  • Remember to set your boot bias to USB drive.

    Redirect html page – 2 methods

    We often deliver a link to the clients / customers which points to a html page.

    Now after the advancements,now if we want to redirect it to another page, we obviously could not publish another url to all our customers. This becomes a tedious process and also the client should not be confused with too many urls.

    Thus the HTML redirection is the best way to do this. There are two ways we can do this.

    1. Java Script

    <script type = "text/javascript">
    window.location= "sample.html"

    2. Through meta data

    <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="2;url=sample.html"></HEAD>

    this meta tag has to be places in the head tags.
