Is it possible to use a backup from usb-windows (win7sp1x64) for the internal hdd?
What are the differences between a normal installation and the win2usb-installation?
(BCD-settings and drive identifiers are not the problem)
The most important difference is the registry keys.
Please follow the steps below to convert the WinToUSB drive to a local installation drive.
1. Boot into the WinToUSB drive.
2. Run regedit.exe as administrator.
3. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\PnP" and set the value "PollBootPartitionTimeout" to 0.
4. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\ControlSet001\Control" and set the value "BootDriverFlags" to 0.
5. Turn off the computer.
6. Connect the hard disk drive to a internal hard disk controller, then you can boot from it.
