Bootable windows 7 install USB stick not detected as boot device Tags: Chipsets Windows 7 Boot Devices Motherboards Last response: January 27, 2013 10:17 PM in Motherboards Share jcpbandb January 27, 2013 9:49:10 PM For a while now I have had a copy of windows 7 ult. On a flash drive, and have booted from it multiple times on other PCs, but I just tried it on another pc, and it doesn't work. I sort through BIOS so I can change boot order and install windows 7 from the USB stick, but it isn't found as a boot device. it is, however, detected as a hard drive. I am a little confused, because i just tried it on my personal PC and it was detected just fine as a boot device. any help would be awesome! thanks!
