    hey guys, i tried to create a bootable flash install of windows seven on a reformated hard drive, the flash drive (16gb) was brand new and formated to ntfs, i followed the instructions from this link:

    tried to boot from it and got the message "operating system missing", any ideas why this might not have worked? thanks.

    Is your Bios set up to look at flash drives as part of the boot order?
