This installer is a set of cmd batch files.
Download and extract it to a folder. For copyright reason, I can't include the imagex, bcdboot and bootsect. You need to find them by yourself and put them in the folder.
1. imagex.exe from win7 7600 waik (imagex from vista can't show the wim contents properly)
2. bcdboot.exe from win7 (win7 beta 7000 is recommended, higher version may not run in xp based winpe and win 2000 )
3. bootsect.exe from vista or win7 (win7 7600 is recommended).
Then, run the installer.cmd.
1. If you install vista or 2008 from the original iso with this installer, the windows partition will occupy d:.
2. After installing the OS on a USB hard drive, you should open the write cache of the hard drive in device manager to speedup the system.
3. If you want to plug the usb OS to another PC, please run the command as administrator\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdownAfter the shutting down the computer, you can plug the hard disk to another computer.

There is some form of miscommunication.
Thanks for the responses. Yes, Wonko, I was using the information in the thread you provide the link for. It seems to have worked for some using the 'set_7_usb_boot.cmd' but unfortunately not for me. It seems to hang there for a whille before it reboots. Someone else suggested using PWBoot through which you can also apply a patch for the USB to work. I don't know if anyone has tried that.

It seems to me like a brief flash on the USB disk is not really-really something for which I would spend a "so I'm pretty sure".
When I run the 'set_7_usb_boot.cmd', I can see the USB hard drive light come on, so I'm pretty sure the patch is applied to the correct OS.

Which windows source files do you use?
How do I fix the stop 7b error?

Which windows source files do you use?
Did it boot once?
Did you install SP1 after?
Which hardware do you use?
Try Windows 7 gold files.
And try Windows Embedded Standard 7 USB driver stack.
And try Windows 8.

Yes, that's a major difference.
The only difference between this and my previous attempt with installing Windows 7 SP1 is that this time I used the ISO file with SP1 already in it rather then installing the non-SP1 Windows 7 and then applying the patch afterwards.
Which version do you use? Do you use x86 or x64?
I used Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 integrated.
Issue may relate to windows, hardware, BIOS,...
I have an Acer Aspire 5750 Laptop and hooked an external 2TB 3.5 HD to it via USB 3.
Where do I find the Windows Embedded Standard 7 USB driver stack? I have the DVD of it.
Not tested, original Windwos 7 x64 SP1 installs fine here to USB:
Then how do I apply it to the image.
Dism /Image:G:\ /Add-Driver /Driver:F:\USB\Embedded\amd64~winemb-usbboot /Recurse /ForceUnsignedAdjust path to your configuration.

Well, here works Windows 7 gold at native USB boot. And installing SP1 is possible later. Windows 7 SP1 does boot still.
So, no doubt that you need to use the official Windows 7 SP1 ISO to get things to work.
