I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 ( pretty old hehe )
I want to install Windows 7 through a USB, I have the Windows 7.iso file, My DVD drive has gone berserk and there is no way to fix it. I read http://www.netbookreviews.com/instal...-2-easy-steps/ and I was like is it that simple? I just mount the iso with daemon tools and install it?
I want to do a clean installation and if I mount through daemon tools is going to store the files somewhere on the computer?

I am really confused...

sorry you cant do a clean install without booting from the DVD/CD Drive, Get an external one or borrow from someone for a few hours :)

You can only do an upgrade.

I agree a clean install is possible from a thumb drive. I don't think Microsoft would have put the procedures online for people to use if it wasn't possible.
