Create a bootable pen drive


Many times we need to have a bootable pen drive if we are a netbook user or sometimes we don’t have a dvd to use, but to create one bootable usb drive is very easy if you follow the below steps:


1. Insert your formatted USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system.

2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator or open RUN ,type cmd and hit enter.

3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:

DISKPART and hit enter.

LIST DISK and hit enter.

Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter.

SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)

CLEAN

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE

FORMAT FS=NTFS

(Format process may take few seconds)

ASSIGN

EXIT

Bootable USB

now minimise the command window.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I am using “D” as my optical (DVD) drive letter and “H” as my USB drive letter.

6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:

D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:

(Where “H” is your USB drive letter)

USB Bootable

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.

now you have completed making a bootable pen drive , you can preserve it for any no of uses and format it too if u want it back to be used as a data traveller device.

NOTE:In making a pen drive bootable we convert it into NTFS format from FAT 32,this makes USB losses its efficiency,so,i prefer not to make pen drives bootable.

Operating system in an operating system


Well with the gaining popularity of windows 7 and the upsurging higher versions of operating systems ,the OS with low versions such as Windows XP and Windows Vista are loosing their existance may be that is due to they lack in certain features or they are not standing firmly in the security norms.

But the problem we face in windows 7  is its unsupportability towards some programs which are specially designed to work in lower versions of operating systems ,may that can be a simple game , a compiler or a designing software.

But there is  a solution to that ,there are many such softwares in the market which provide the previlage to install an operating system into an another system that may be lower into an higher or vise versa, and that too without formatting the previous one.It is not like that first you have to remove the first one,nor am talking about the dual booting process,but here the case is that first you starts your operating system ,starts your software and the run another operating system into that software.

The some of the softwares which are really trustable and i have personally used them are VMWARE WORKSTATION and the VIRTUAL BOX.They creates a virtual machine into your computer,or in other words a computer into a computer with the required configurations and thus provide an platform to run your all softwares and programs.

Please give your comments over the topic and also write us for any problem you face in that.Enjoy…
