If you would like to install a new version of Windows or you would like to install another operating system on your Windows 7 PC, you will likely need to boot your PC either from a USB drive or a CD drive. In this guide, we’re going to talk about how you can boot your Windows 7 PC from a USB pen drive.

If you have a bootable USB pen drive, then you are good to go to install a new operating system on your PC as a bootable USB works just as fine as an actual bootable CD or DVD. All you have to do is plug in your USB drive to your PC and then instruct your PC so that it boots up from the USB drive and not from the hard drive which it usually does.

If you have never booted your PC from a USB drive, you might think it is hard to do that. In fact, it is just as easy as normally booting up your PC. You just have to press a key while your PC is booting up and you will be able to boot it up from your USB drive.
