    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.

    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 ?
