Failed while updating the boot sectors for disk1 partition1
The Windows 7 beta has been released for quite a while now.
If you want to follow the crowd and test it in your system, but do not want to burn into a DVD, here is how you can create a bootable USB drive to install Windows 7 on your system.
Microsoft even describes the Disk Part command as enabling a of the actions that are supported by the Disk Management snap-in. In experimenting with this, I have not been able to successfully prepare a bootable USB flash drive from the Disk Management Console. However, using the Disk Part command with its very specific command structure, I have always been able to prepare a bootable USB flash drive.No volume information for disk 0x81 Sector Size: 512 bytes Cylinders: 1897, Tracks Per Cylinder: 255, Sectors Per Track: 63 Partition type: MBR, NB Partitions: 1 Disk ID: 0x00000001 Partition 1: Type: Small FAT16 (0x04) Size: 14.5 GB (15606349824 bytes) Start Sector: 0, Boot: No, Recognized: Yes Same happened to mine today, can't give the log for when it happened, but that's what I get when trying to write to it now, as well as it's not appearing anymore in my computer, but is seen in computer management / disk management as Removeable (F:) No Media Found device 'Generic USB Flash Disk USB Device' (058F:1234) Ignoring label for drive F: No media 1 device found No volume information for disk 0x82 Could not get geometry for drive 0x82: [0x00000015] The device is not ready.
