Wondered if those 3 programs - FRST.exe , rufus-1.4.12.exe , vista32 rc.iso - have to be on blank USB stick or if that matters.
Rufus stays on the desktop on the borrowed Laptop. Leave Rufus there that's his home an primary position.
About the blank USB, That USB is going to have to be at least 120
Megabytes free to put the ISO File on it. I would suggest getting rid of any other data on it and start fresh. We have enough going on here as it is.
Remember all Rufus is doing for us is moving the ISO FILE
that you have on the desktop to the USB stick CONNECTED to the borrowed Laptop and that USB will need to have at least 120MB of free space to accommodate the size of the ISO File you downloaded to the desktop on the borrowed Laptop.In review
First of all you downloaded all 3
programs "to" the borrowed Laptop that you're using to post with.
- 32 Bit FRST
- The Vista rc32Bit ISO File
So everything is in place and ready to go, the computer is waiting for correct instruction from you.
Now Insert the USB that we you will use into the borrowed computer, I'd wait for it to be recognized by the computer and make sure you can see it in Mycomputer and Note the drive letter that windows assigned to it, usually the letter "E"next
All 3 programs should the desktop on the borrowed Laptop
You inserted the USB, it has at least 120MB of free space, and you noted the drive letter.Next
Where's Rufus we need him now, and you have to tell him what to do.
Rufus should be on the desktop, right click Rufus and run as administrator.
Now Rufus wants something from you, he wants the ISO FILE so he can move it to the USB stick that you plugged in with a 120MB FREE space
Inside the Rufus program is a place to select ISO file, please review the prior instructions and pictures provided, look at Rufus closely you can see the arrow for ISO FILE selection, it's like a drop down menu.
Once the ISO FILE is on the USB all we need to do is copy FRST to the same USB.
Let me know how you get along here, re read all the instructions and look at all pictures and become familiar with it.
