I needed to install Windows a few months ago, and didn't have a DVD drive included in my PC build. I looked online to find an alternative way to install Windows, and I found out that you can actually install Windows by using a USB stick, just like you can install Linux. Here is how you do it. First off, you must have an official Windows Operating system disk or an ISO file. Then download this program - http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool Follow the simple instructions it gives you and you're good to go. It's pretty simple, just make sure that you have a good USB stick that has relatively fast speeds, and make sure that you have at least 8gb of space.
