Hello everyone, newbie to site here!.....I just built an HTPC and I do not have a floppy drive. I can get into the bios utility setup just fine and I set the boot sequence to boot from usb removable drive(I think)....how do I get the dos commands onto my flash so I can fdisk and format my hard drive to be able to install Windows 7????

Thanks,

If you are installing windows 7 and have a dvd drive you should not have to fdisk and formate the drive - Windows installation should take care of that. If you want multiple partitions on the HDD just select custom install and set up the partitions.

Thanks RetiredChief,

Worked like a charm!! I was used to having to use fdisk and format before installing the OS.

Warmest regards,
