HI all, i tried replying to an open thread, but pretty sure this solution will help a lot of people who are trying to install a windows from a USB drive.

If youve followed a guide like the following:

http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/

but are still getting the BOOTMGR missing when you start the computer with the USB drive in, its because it is trying to load an operating system from the HDD (which is empty).

In the bios setting make sure ALL the USB devices (USB stick, external hard drive, external device) are above the CD/DVD drive AND the Hard Disk. This worked for me after hours of messing around (not sure if USB stick size has something to do with the way that it is recognised by some computers....

hope this helps
