Windows 7 install from an SD card
  

Hello everyone!

I have been purchasing a mini pc (Giata Slim N-10) without cd/dvd. I created a bootable SD card with my Windows CD and seven with the tool Windows7-USB-DVD-Tool.exe , I have chosen to boot the card reader of MiniPC in the bios.

I have this error at startup: error \BOOT\BCD

I also tried by using: diskpart, list disk, select disk, clean, create partition primary, format FS = NTFS etc. ...

But still Same error. My windows CD works perfectly on my second pc.

What to do?

Re: Windows 7 install from an SD card

Have you tried without your software? I've always succeeded at once by a simple copy and paste the contents of the DVD media (on a USB stick). The formatting you've done via cmd is not compulsory. Have you tried a standard USB key?
