Solved Installing from Image? Tags: Windows 7 Optical Media Last response: August 9, 2010 5:51 PM in Windows 7 Share xxgamxx August 7, 2010 2:58:35 PM If I mounted the installation image to my pc and had no optical drive, I would be able to just install windows 7 just by running the installer while XP is on? I'm asking because I can't boot from anything on this pc that has windows 7.
