In this guide, we’ll treat (with pictures) how to install Windows 7 using either the Windows CD / DVD or a USB drive. The procedures for installing Windows 7 and 8 are almost the same (See https://journal.hovatek.com/how-to-install-windows-8-with-and-without-the-operating-system-cd-dvd/ ) except that Windows 8 might require you to enter the licence key before installation.

Part 1: Getting the Operating System (OS) files in bootable format

If you already have the Operating System CD/DVD then skip this step. If on the other hand the PC in question doesn’t have a CD/DVD drive or you don’t have the OS CD/DVD then this part is for you
Requirements

Procedure

  • Launch Windows 7 USB DVD Download tool and click on “Browse”
  • In the window that pops us, select the ISO file then click “Open”
  • Click “Next”
  • Under Choose media type, select “USB Device”
  • Select the USB device of your Choice then click “Begin copying” . If prompted to format it, Click Yes/ OK
  • Once the task is 100% complete, close Windows 7 USB DVD Download tool and remove the USB drive

Now that you have bootable OS files, you can proceed to Part 2.

Part 2: Installing Windows 7 using CD/DVD/Bootable USB drive
