Couldn't this already be done without their tool? I remember installing Windows 7 Beta on an older Dell I had, it wouldn't boot from DVD so I had to put it on a USB to install it. I think HP has a free tool that helps you do this already.
My flash drive already does this, why do I need a tool? Takes about 5 minutes to setup any flash drive to install any os. I've personally done it with various flavors of linux, mac os x, win xp, vista, and 7, server 2k3 and 2k8.
So, that is setting the record straight: m$ did use GPLed code illegally, without respecting the licenses, and providing due credit.
Where are all those wintarded micro$uxx fankiddies whining that their god was wrongly accused?
