Article: Microsoft releases Windows 7 upgrade tool for netbooks

InfoWorld reports: "Microsoft has released a tool that lets netbook owners install Windows 7 on their machines using a USB flash drive, sidestepping the usual requirement of a DVD drive."

Before starting this, you need to make sure that computer you're trying to upgrade to Windows 7 is bootable via USB drive, although most modern computers support this feature. You will also need a flash drive that is 4GB or greater.
