Hi to all!
Today I have a problem with installation of windows 7x64.
When I install win7 from dvd there are no problems, but If i copy the content of cd to and usb stick, make the partition active and I try to install, the wizard can't find hard disk and ask me to install drivers.
I don't understand why the installation from usb stick have that problem..files are the same of DVD!
Thanks :)

Could not have been easier.
You have to enable booting from USB in the BIOS of the computer. Consult the manual on your motherboard on how to do it.

I have seen that happen now and then on certain mainboards. Meanwhile I use WinSetupFromUSB to create my USB sticks, and I haven't seen that issue since then. Besides, this tool allows you to have more than one bootable iso on the stick, and you aren't limited to Windows, Linux works too. A further advantage is that iso's larger than 4GB are split, which means you can use FAT32 for the stick, which is essential should you want to install Windows to a GPT disk on a UEFI BIOS, and if the wim file inside your iso is too large for FAT32.

@ScottCha i try your solution and it works with no problem
@Josef Al-Chacar i follow the guide in the link and I had a little problem with iso, then i remake iso with Imgburn with filesystem ISO9660+Joliet+UDF and i solve it.
@rindi I have a problem with this procedure. When I put stick, boot stop and give me this error

Boot from a USB 2 port, and not a USB 3 port. I've seen issues like that when USB 3 ports were used.

@rindi I think that laptop have only 3.0 usb. How i can verify wich is 3.0 or 2.0?

USB 3 ports are usually colored in blue, while USB 2 ports are black.

Commented:
All ports in my laptop are black, but there are usb 3.0.
At this point I'll try to inject drivers in the iso.
Thanks you so much.
If you expand "Boot options" on the last screenshot, what are those, and which one is selected?

Can you change the mode from USB 3 to USB 2 in the BIOS?
