    Windows 7 Installation Process completes only after removing Bootable USB

    I was trying to install windows 7 through Bootable USB but I was unable to complete the installation process. I tried many times but all attempts failed. At last I tried to complete the installation process by removing the Bootable USB from the port in later stage.I was shocked to see that the installation process completed successfully. I want to know whether it is normal?

    It is a not a normal process. This will never happen if you are using original windows 7 ISO Images to make the USB bootable. This problem occurs when you create a bootable usb from a pirated windows 7 DVD. If you are using pirated product and still want to continue the process then you will have to remove the Bootable USB to complete the installation process.However I want to inform you that using a pirated DVD is an offence and you should always use only the Original windows 7 DVD.

    Dear,
    This will not happen if you will use the original Window 7 DVD to boot the computer. your problem occurred due to the using the Duplicate print of the window 7 DVD. so use the original DVD to boot the computer, there are many benefits of using the original DVD of the operating. It will reduces the chances of Crash of the operating. it also reduces the chance of the virus attacks. It takes the less time to Upade the Operting for the application.

    hi there,

    I'ts not really a problem. It sometimes happens and the reason is not specific. Sometimes it happens due to the software you used to make the usb bootable, OR it may be on cause of wrong BIOS configuration. It may also happen due to the process threads being locked with the read stream from the flash drive, or it may be just an hardware access control point.

    Well, I understand it may sound a little technical to you, but one main thing to remember here is that such things are quite normal with the installation through USB. There's nothing to worry about.

    Thank You..!!

    Hii dear....let me know you that you are facing the problem because you are booting the windows 7 by a usb.

    So to solve your problem first go to your BIOS setting and choose your computer hard disk as your the default boot device .

    And choose network harddisk as your boot device priority.

    After that you will not face this type of problem while installing windows 7.

    Hello friend,

    Windows 7 Installation Process completes only after removing Bootable USB
    I was trying to install windows 7 through Bootable USB but I was unable to complete the installation process. I tried many times but all attempts failed. At last I tried to complete the installation process by removing the Bootable USB from the port in later stage.I was shocked to see that the installation process completed successfully. I want to know whether it is normal?
    Yeah your are right you can't complete process without removing the USB Bootable . I will give you the full explanation for this , as well as whole process involved in it .

    Steps involved in Installing new Windows from USB Boot-able device


    1. First you set you BIOS to boot from USB Drive .
    2. It will load drivers initially and check all hardware .
    3. Then you select where to install the Windows .
    4. It will copy all files to that drive and make a windows.old folder if you want don't want to delete earlier windows .
    5. After that it will expand files that is uncompress files .
    6. Now it will reboot for installation of windows , and as you have set BIOS to boot from USB it will again boot from USB and a Loop will form . So inspite of again booting it should go for installation phase thats why it's need to remove USB Device .

    If you remove USB Drive it will load OS file that are recently copied and expanded .

    Hoping this will clear your Question ...!!
