No Comments
Suppose you don’t have a DVD drive or it is not working or you don’t have USB drive with you and your copy of windows is corrupted. Now, you might be thinking that is now impossible to install windows and thinking to take it to mechanic. You don’t need to do that. You may be wondering how to do it without external DVD drive or even USB Drive. Isn’t it? In such a condition, what can be a perfect way to install windows. If you are suffering from the same problem then you have come to the right place. We will help you to get out of the problem.
Installing windows with SD Card or Memory Card is quite same job as installing it from DVD drive or USB Drive. To install from SD Card or Memory Card, we need to make the SD Card bootable. Here we will suggest you two ways to install windows.

Note 1: Essential:- First we need to have Memory Card(SD Card) Reader. Listen It is not Memory Card(SD Card) Adaptor. For you information, the drive which we use should have their own drivers and hence Memory Card(SD Card) doesn’t have their own drivers so Reader is required. Images are shown to select which.

Note 2:  During booting, on BIOS screen, boot from SD Card and not from Hard disk. You have to manually do that by pressing prompted function keys.

Note 3: All you need to have a minimum of 4 GB SD Card. I recommend to disable your anti-virus program because it will not allow to copy “autorun.inf” to SD Card.

Installing with Novicorp WinToFlash utility:-

1. If you have an ISO image of windows or any other zip compressed or any other type, just extract it to a folder.

2. Plug in Memory Card into your system.
3. Format the Memory Card as FAT32 file system.

4. Open the software by double clicking on WinToFlash.exe. However currently it is in beta version. So you don’t need to install it.
      5.  Follow on-screen instructions.
6. Click on Windows Setup Transfer Wizard. (If shown)

7. Now choose the windows path where your Windows folder is stored and Memory Card.

8. Accept the terms and conditions.

9. This format warning screen may appear, do accept it.

10. During transfer again a warning screen may appear regarding locking drive, select OK.

11. Wait until transfer process completes.

 All done.

Installing windows without any software or utility. (Recommended):-

This method doesn’t  require any software. I always transfer windows by this method into my USB drive. Hope it work.
Follow steps 1-3 if required. and then :-

4. Go to the folder where your windows copy is saved. (Means where you extracted it)

5. Go inside the folders where all the windows installation files and folders are. As shown in the image.

6. Copy all files and folders and paste them directly to your USB drive.

Wait until it is finished. And you are now ready to install.

Attention: Please copy files and folders from within the windows folder and not one level up. Because during booting and installing, system picks the files and folders directly from the USB drive not from inside the folders. I wish you got. Feel free to clear doubts.
