I recently wiped my notebook with Wipe-Drive and i need to reinstall drive. I don't have a external dvd drive. Can i convert the contents of the driver installation disc that came with noteboook to a usb stick?
If so. How do i go about making a iso (which software to use) and adding to USB stick.
Thanks in advance.

This is for making a Windows iso for running off a USB stick.
I need to install driver before i can install Windows. I'm hoping i can make the same kind of stick to put driver onto notebook. This is a pic of my driver installation disc.
Maybe I am off the wall here but if this is a Windows driver disk then Windows is installed first.
Or are you saying that you can not install Windows because the drive is not recognised when the Windows install disk is inserted ?
Surely, in that scenario, you can set the bios to read from the drive , put the disk in, re-boot and the bios runs the disk to install the drivers. You then re-boot but with the Windows disk in place.

not much info to go on here. unless it's a fairly new notebook it's not going to boot from a usb stick. you have to go into the bios and set it to boot from usb as first device.
what version of windows? what's the make/model of the notebook?--

Agreed. It doesn't make much sense. Install "drivers" for what? The screen capture menu posted doesn't appear to have Windows on the program. It looks like a driver replacement disc, not a Windows system disc.Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things.

Thanks for replies.
I wanted to put the contents of the system recovery disc on a USB stick if possible and try and boot the nootebook. The same way a external drive works.
Don't matter now.
Thanks for everyone's help.
You can't install drivers to an empty hard drive. Drivers are not installed to hard drives. The notebook hard drive must have an operating system installed on it before you can install drivers.
The image of a menu that you posted in post #3 is not a menu from a Windows system recovery disc.
What is the operating system you are trying to install? What is the make and model of your notebook?Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end. -- Henry David Thoreau
It looks more like a Mainboard driver disk. And as I previously pointed you in the way to install that.
Your comments 'Don't matter now' pretty much put two fingers in the direction of those who tried to help. What has NOT helped is your total lack of information or replies to the questions raised.
