I am trying to install my Windows 7 OS from the disk, onto the USB drive and into my new computer. I have a 16gb USB and when i try and format the USB in the cmd prompt it says "The file system is incompatible." How do i fix this?

you need to load the disc to be able to make a iso for the usb key or the other way is to use the drive maker transfer tool to transfer a copy of your drive on the new one .

ok so i got Windows 7 onto the USB drive and started installing windows, im now trying to download it but every time it says it needs to restart the computer to continue it restarts the whole process over again and it keeps making me download the same thing over again.
