I have two quick questions, I used the Windows USB tool to put ISO on my flash drive, but it made me delete everything first. Do you know why this is?

Also, once I have Windows on there, is it okay for me to put other things on my flash driver? Like drivers I want/like or even music? Or will it only work as bootable if just windows 7 is specially put on there?

Thanks.

In order to make the drive bootable this had to be done. You can put other things on it if you want.

The correct way If you want to make a flash drive bootable for installation of Windows:

1: Insert a flash drive ( 8GB )
2: Command Prompt (DOS PROMPT)
3: DISKPART
4: LIST DISK
5: SELECT DISK ( DRIVE NUMBER)
6: CLEAN
7: CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
8: SELECT PARTITION 1
9: ACTIVE
10: FORMAT FS=NTFS
11: ASSIGN
12: EXIT
13: COPY ALL DVD FILES TO FLASHDRIVE

Yes, it's normal. In order for windows to be written into the flash drive, it must be deleted.
