A Bootable USB: Utility to Create Bootable USB Drive to Install Windows Vista, Server 2008 and 7

July 27, 2009

Imagine a situation where you need to install Windows Vista or 7 in a system but you don’t have access to DVD drive. We all know Windows Vista, Server 2008 or 7 comes in DVDs and you’ll need a DVD drive to install them. Then how will you install them? The solution is, you can create a bootable USB drive which can be used to install Windows without using DVD drive.

There is a new GUI based tool available here at Tweaking with Vishal which will allow you to easily create this bootable USB OS install. Now THIS is going to come in handy. Especially for all those Netbooks being sold today!

Thanks to Tim Barrett of No Geek Left Behind for providing a link to this handy tool!

Bing Search Portal

Can any search engine take away GOOGLE’s reign as hte number one search engine on the web? BING just might be the one!

Microsoft made the preview of BING public today, and you can tell it’s not your fathers search engine. Taking a bit of a new approach to internet searching, BING provides not only very relevant results, but also provides great tools such as related searches, on page live video previews, and even live pricing of airline fares, etc.

I know many who have made BING their default search engine and/or home page already.

What an interesting time for the web. BING, Google Wave… as if we already didn’t have enough reasons to sit at the computer 🙂
