Configuring the BIOS
You should now reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to boot from USB. Instructions for doing so vary wildly from system to system, but generally entail the following:
- Reboot the system.
- While booting (before Windows starts loading), get into the BIOS configuration screen by hitting something like F1, F2, Delete or Escape. Hotkey instructions are generally provided on the screen.
- Go to the section that contains your boot devices.
- With your USB drive plugged in, the USB drive should be listed. If it isn’t, your system might not support booting from USB. Assuming that it is supported (as is the case with virtually all modern hardware), promote your USB drive to the primary boot device.
- Exit from the BIOS configuration, saving all changes.
Please notice that you can seriously screw up your system by providing incorrect BIOS settings!
Booting and Setup Windows From USB Drive
Assuming that you properly configured your BIOS and your USB drive supports booting, Windows setup should now load. Depending on the speed of your USB drive, this may take a while.
If it isn’t working, then double-check the following before making a scene:
- Is your BIOS properly configured for booting from the USB device? (Is the USB device listed and does it have top priority?)
- Have you correctly prepared the USB drive in step one? (Restart the procedure.)
- Does your USB drive properly support being booted from? (Try another one!)
Note: The above guide works with Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1, or Windows Vista. For Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.
