hello... i need to make a bootable usb drive to make a recovery disk for my unable to boot windows 7 ultimate 32 bit laptop..

 

 

Because i dont have relatives/ near friends that has a working computer, I am not able to burn the iso that i have just downloaded.

I been going around the city to look for a shop that offers burning an os iso, and my effort is nonsense since no one from them offers to burn it.

 

I have searched the other way and i think creating a bootable usb will let me fix my computer..Currently i am in an internet cafe that is the only shop where i figured out that users are able to run cmd,(though not using it as an administrator because of some restriction). I am using windows xp professional. I just dont know if it is already sp1,2, or 3 because properties are locked...

 

I know i dont own this computer but i can follow exact instruction to prevent system errors..

 

Taking the oppurtunity, can anyone help me through step by step guide how i can make a bootable win 7 (ultimate 32)usb drive using windows xp..

Yes sir. You are right. It is still a problem to me.

 

If you have any suggestions on how i could fix it, please let me know..

 

For now, im hoping i could run the windows repair later on when i get home. If it will not, im hoping my mother wont kick me out when she figure it out..... HMMMMM(what a hard joke for myself).

an update... running the windows repair from it does not fix the problem.

it only helps to bring back f8 functionality.
what i have tried so far:
run start up repair, memory diagnostic, cmd with chckdisk,fixMbr, sfc /scannow offboot..., copy registry from system32config\regback to system32\config.



restore points are already gone. so i cant make use of system restore.

If i choose to upgrade my windows, will it remove my files? I have already downloaded an iso with sp1.

Also, there are lots of logs i have noticed on my windows drive and mostly some of them are modified right before my pc is escaping the boot process... I want to upload them but i dont see any upload button with this mobile site version.
