Sandisk Cruzer 8GB
I’ve just tried to install Windows 7 on my new desktop after using the Microsoft Windows 7 USB DVD download tool.
(And yes I do have a genuine legal image so it isn’t the Windows 7 image which is causing the problem)
Everything seemed to go well - said it copied and completed correctly.
I inserted the drive in the PC, choose to boot from it - but go the error message NTLDR is missing.
Thought I’d try again.
Put it back in the laptop and restarted Windows download tool - received the error message to the effect of some other program is using it - which must be closed first.
I rebooted the laptop and tried again. Same error message.
I then gave up and thought I’d try formatting the drive (with the possibility of restarting the process - but thought I might just go for the dvd option - problem is no blank disks at home)
Windows tried to reformat to 16mb then said it couldn’t
I then tried the HP tool which similarly claimed only 16mb and again failed to reformat.
Anyone got any ideas.
