Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool streamlines the process of downloading the Windows 7 operating system image from Microsoft and then installing it.

Digital copies of software are convenient and often include a discount. Thus, many users opt for this format over a physical release. This holds true even when purchasing the likes of an operating system, such as Windows 7. When purchasing the digital version of Windows 7, Microsoft provides the user with an image. The user must transfer that image to a DVD, USB flash drive or other suitable media in order for it to be usable. While Microsoft does provide a mechanism for doing that, the process is not user-friendly. Rather, it gears toward customization.

The Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool provides an alternative that aims to help beginners. First, the user downloads and installs this tool. Once they have purchased the Windows 7 digital version, this tool downloads the image. It then prepares it and transfers it to either a DVD or USB flash drive. The user only needs to execute the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool. Afterward, he or she has to provide it with a writable DVD or USB flash stick when instructed to do so. When the process complete, the user can then boot from that DVD or USB flash drive and install the Windows 7 operating system.

Note that the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool does not allow the user to adjust the install configuration. Thus, this is not a suitable option for users performing batch installations of the OS. Most would argue that a configuration tool should be useful to many users. However, it is important to keep in mind that this is intended to be a mostly hands-off solution for beginners. It also benefits users who want to avoid the hassle, and it achieves that objective in very impressive fashion.
