Step 1: If you have followed the instruction up till now, you should have the Windows 7 Iso image and the Active@ Iso burner which we'll be using to burn the iso image into the blank DVD CD. Install Active@ Iso burner if you haven't. Open Active@ iso, and grab the Windows 7 Iso image onto the Active@ iso browser bar and click "Burn".
Step 2: Now that you have the Windows 7 installation CD it's time to transfer the files you downloaded into the flash drive. Once you have done that insert the installation DVD and turn off the computer. Move on to the next step.
Step 3: If your computer goes to installation mode when you turn it on skip this step. Since some computer are not set to start up the disk drive before the hardrive which causes the computer to ignore the installation CD. We will have to set it up ourselves. Turn your computer on go into the BIOS settings by pressing F12 or F2. Find the boot up section and change the boot up order. Move the disk drive in place of the first one.
Step 4: Now restart your computer, you will be prompt with a message that says "Press any key to boot from CD", go ahead and do so. Windows will load all the necessary files and start the installation process. Select your language, time zone, accept agreement etc, but STOP once you get to the hardrive selection prompt.
Step 5: We will need to wipe our hardrive in order to install the operating system. Select your hardrive, and click "drive options". Delete the current partition and create a new one. After creating a new partition format it and click next.
Step 6: The installation will now begin and it will take about 30 to 40 minutes to finish. Once the installation has finished you will need to activate your operating system. There are two ways of doing it. One is to buy a product key and two is to use Windows Loader which is as effective as a genuine product key.
