How to install Windows 7 OS in pendrive?

Specs: Windows 7
I have a old laptop. I think the harddisk is crashed. So I want to use it by installing OS in pendrive of 32GB. I have already made a ISO file of the OS. I used wintousb but it isn't working. So I need another method.

An ISO is a file that burner software uses to create a disk. Once you create the disk--and assuming it's a regular windows 7 installation disk--then you boot it from the DVD drive and choose to install on the pen drive.

However, it's a much better idea to just get another hard drive and install it there.

--Yes but it's a dry heat.

"I think the harddisk is crashed"

What are the symptoms?

I think what you created is a Win7 installation pendrive. What you need to create is a portable Windows pendrive but Win7 isn't the best choice. Read the NOTES on this page: http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/

If you are looking to test the hardware or run the system temporarily from the pen drive, Puppy Linux is a better option and you can see if there is any access to the hard drive while you are at it to confirm that the drive is dead or just that the system is 'messed up' (technical term) and just needs to be reinstalled.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You can run a light version of Windows from a pendrive but not the full blown Windows. Why not just buy a new hard drive for your laptop, they are dirt cheap these days.

How did you write the ISO to the pendrive, did you just copy the ISO to the drive or did you expand it with a program to write ISO's to pendrives?
