Is there a way to install windows 7 without
Dvd Writer or Usb pendrive...

I mean, put windos 7 files in a folder and install
using the folder like this...
"C:/Windows7/(an exe?)".
or maybe i create a new partition set it as bootable
drive, and put the files or the ISO(i have the original DVD!!
no to piracy!),also tell me something good for partitions.

I wonder if you could mount the .iso in a virtual drive, and install the way you did.

Edit:
If you want to try the virtual drive, I use this...

You're on your own from me though, as I've never tried installing an O/S that way.

How about if i use DOS to directly install the files this way.
1) i copy the Windows 7 ENTIRE dvd files to the "X:" partition (15gbs)..
2) i use DOS or something to "boot" it, if it is possible..
3) i start installing in the C: partition, because de D: is the backup
4) i merge the X with the C

Lol im watchin`family guy :D 5 am in the morning and still in this thing :p
Merry christmas!

my neighbour copyed the ISO from his computer, and transfered me the iso via wireless, (the router)..
Dont worry :p im against piracy...well... when i have some money.. this one is in english(my 7), cuz my cousin brought it from USA.. and anyway there is an language update i guess..
And, so that will work?...
