    late 2011 13" base macbook air w/ refit

    Working windows 7 on pny "attache" 8gb usb drive

    what I have tried:

    bootcamp ver of windows 7 usb
    windows usb program
    command prompt


    every version of the usb stick has netted the same result (with and without the use of refit)

    "no bootable device found"

    I know the iso is good b/c it was a paid for direct dl from microsoft. That leads me to believe that some usb drives just don't work as bootable devices.

    :confused:

    Quick questions, do you have Win7 installed on the USB key or just the iso file ? Does Win7 boot from the thumb drive on any other computers ?
