Virtualization, Cloud, Infrastructure and all that stuff in-between

My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Installing Windows 7 from a USB Flash Drive and Multi-Boot from VHD

 

This is a useful tool which I haven’t come across before  – Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool – it will create a bootable USB flash drive which you can use to install Windows 7

Combine this with a boot from .VHD setup and you have a very flexible multi-boot solution, it also seems to work with Windows 2008 R2 if you need to install Hyper-V on your laptop, and then combine this with virtualized ESXi in VMware Workstation (or boot ESXi from USB) and you have an excellent hypervisor demo machine and general Windows laptop.
