Heya people,

I've recently acquired Windows 7 on a bootable USB, and everything works well, (especially since my old operating system DIED on me two days ago and i had to resort to this).

Anywho, since i am booting from USB, i was wondering whether i could perhaps copy it onto my hard drive, so i wouldn't have to rely on the USB every time i boot the PC.

Is this possible, and if so, how could i do it?

Many thanks.

I don't know, but you might want to play around with some hard disk cloning software. They often copy everything that's on it. You can burn what's on it onto a DVD and then copy the DVD onto the hard drive using the cloning application's bootable interface. Try Norton Ghost. I don't guarantee it'll work, but it sounds like a good direction to go.
