Install Microsoft Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 from setup files stored in Hard Disk

Most of the time people do not carry Windows setup Dvd. If the installed windows gets corrupt or system won’t boot then you are in trouble. One solution is to keep Microsoft windows vista/7/8.1/10 setup files in hard disk that is bootable and can be used for installation.

Requirements

  1. Insert Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 setup dvd into the dvd drive. If you have Windows iso image file then mount the image using image mounting software(Daemon tools, power iso).
  2. Partition manager is used to create separate partition in which Windows setup files will be copied. Partition with 4GB size or more  is required. I suggest you create a 6 GB partition. You may not have free space in hard disk to create 4 GB partition. So you will have to resize the existing partition to get 4GB free space. Careful if make any mistake in resizing and creating partition then you are risking the deletion of your existing partition and files. (Make sure you do not lose power during resizing or creating the partition.)
  3. Copy all the files of Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 DVD or iso image files to the newly created partition.
  4. Easy BCD software will be used to add an entry in the bootloader. In the copied Windows setup files you will find “sources” folder in which you will find “\sources\boot.wim
