Windows 7/8 USB/DVD Download Tool With XP support ending April 2014, the time to migrate to Windows 7/8 is now. The Windows 7/8 USB/DVD Download Tool helps you create a copy of your Windows 7/8 ISO file and install it onto a bootable DVD or USB drive. Granted, network deployments typically offer faster means for image installs, but smaller shops may still go with a manual one-by-one deployment. Installing Windows from an ISO typically means booting up your existing OS and downloading an ISO-mounting solution (like Magic Disk) before mounting and installing your new OS. This tool makes that process much faster, so long as the system BIOS supports a USB boot and you change the BIOS boot order of drives.
