Better installer for Windows 7 tweaked setup

Better installer for Windows 7

This installer has 4 advantages compared to the original setup.exe:
1. This installer supports install vista and win7 in the xp based winpe.
2. You can install the OS directly onto a USB external hard drive.
3. You can choose which partition to put the bootmgr and bcd manually, which can prevent putting
the boot files onto usb disks when booting winpe from usb.
4. If you install win7/2008 with setup.exe from winpe, the OS partition will occupy C: no matter
which partition you choose. With this installer, you can decide which letter to be used for
the OS partition in Windows.

1. If you install vista or 2008 with this installer, the windows partition will occupy d:.
2. After installing the OS on a USB hard drive, you are recommended to open the write cache of
the hard drive in device manager.
3. If you want to plug the usb OS to another PC, please run
\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdown
After the shutting down the computer, you can plug the hard disk to another computer.
