Hi,

Have you formatted and partitioned in windows before use (What version you using?).

Lot of help on these forums for that product, Smartware etc?

Do you have your bios set up to boot off the usb drive first?

In your BIOS is it setup to boot from your USB WD Book drive before your hard drive?
