Software pirates in China realized that there is a great demand for a copy of Windows 7 on an USB stick.
Especially, netbook users have been looking for ways to install Windows 7 from an USB or flash drive rather than from DVD.

Microsoft considered this option, but they did not act!

The pirated Windows 7 USB Flash drive has 8GB and includes a copy of the Windows 7 10-in-1 Ultimate Steve Ballmer Signature Edition that is either bootable or can be used to install Windows 7 on your own HDD. Of course, the USB Flash drive from Netac is also pirated.

The price for the pirated USB drive including Windows 7 10-in-1 is only about $14 (about 9,5€). For a price of $291.99 (, wouldn’t it be great to receive a bootable copy of Windows 7?

3. Follow the instructions on the screen, but don’t install Windows 7, instead click on “Repair your computer“:

The installer will now search for Windows installations on your PC and list them all. Select your Windows 7 installation and click on next.

4. Open the command prompt.

Attention: Do NOT click on “System Restore” or “System Image Recovery”. If you try to restore/recover your system that way, you might damage your Windows 7 installation irreversibly.

5.You will probably be in a folder X:\sources\ . Don’t worry, if your partitions are still there you can run a chkdsk on them.

chkdsk c: /f/r

/f /r will both fix errors and recover lost data.

/f will only fix errors on your disk

/r will only recover lost data
