I would think that installing Win 7 from a USB Flash Drive would be facilitated by using one with the 200X write speed that some of the newer dual channel USB Flash Drives have.

jjj- Although I have other more in depth benchmarking programs the one that I find myself using most often for both its quickness and accuracy is Crystal DiskMark v2.2 freeware which is simple to use and can do benchmarks that range from very quick to longer and even more accurate. Crystal DiskMark will test any local or attached drive both hard disc and solid state Flash Drives for both Read and Write speed at any file length and any duration that you set.


If you are also interested in a portable benchmarking application the Crystal DiskMark Portable App loads onto a USB Flash Drive which may come in handy when you are out on a service call to show your client exactly how much jjj sped up their computer!
