Specs: Windows, 2 gigs ram
My windows 8 ISO turned out to be corrupted so I tried to use a bootable use to install windows 7 instead but When I used the usb with windows 7 ISO in it, it says "remove disk or other media". Help me...

An ISO is just an image file, did you extract the ISO to the USB drive? Also what method did you use to make the USB device bootable?

✔ Best Answer
Just in case you don't already know, with an ISO or image file you don't just copy the file onto the disk. It is a form of compressed file so you would normally have to use "burn an image" feature, which is available with most burner software. However, this freebie will do that as well as creating a bootable USB flash drive:

As always with all downloads (from anywhere) watch out for goodies that you don't want being pre-checked for you. A custom install, when available is a good bet.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
