I haven't messed with booting from flash drives in a long time but was trying to help a friend with this notebook. Basically, he is going to install is own copy of Windows 7 and mirror it to a drive for his two other notebooks (same model). The problem is the application he is using doesn't seem to load drivers for an external drive, at least not for this notebook.

Is it possible to load something like parted magic for a flash drive then apply the mirror that way or what suggestions do you all have? He needs something cheap if not free at this point. lol

Thanks for any help!

What I would do in this situation would be:
1. Download the free Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool
2. Make an .iso image (or obtain one legally) of the windows 7 install disc.
3. Use the tool to create a bootable installer flash drive.

Once made, install windows 7 to the laptop(s) via the flash drive. I do not have a method for cloning the drive, but this might get you started.
