Windows 7 boot from flash drive

Hello,
I have f* up my MBR partition(FAT32, is invalid now) and now W7 won't start. I haveen't made a rescue CD, as my lappy has no CD/DVD drive.
Is there a tool to start W7 via USB port?

THX for any help...

  1. That was quick! thx.
    But unfortunately that won't work: I have no rescue disk.
  2. What version of 7 do you have and is your license genuine?
  3. 32 bit, it is genuine (i swear) but the licence nr on the back is faded I 've heard one could find in bios as well, if that's true...
  4. Is it home premium or starter?
  5. home premium :)
  6. Any help, anyone?
    I am trying to make things work with YUMI now, but I am still stuck...

    Long story short ... brand new build ad cd drive will not run, neither will new replacement (different brand). I have a Win7 Home Premium OEM CD and a 8GB USB (still in package).

    Will the link above work if I put the Win7 CD in my old XP PC? I assume the site describes the gory details ... I'm basically trying to install Win7 from CD without a CD drive.
  9. FYI ... wintoflash rocks ... downloaded app ... usb and Win7 cd in my old winXP box and it just made theings happen (I just had to click a couple buttons). Put usb in a mobo port and thing started loading win7. This got me past my cd issue (not sure what's up with that yet)!
