Installing Windows XP from USB Flash Drive

Postby dawood.muslim » Wed Nov 14, 2007 9:58 pm

Hi Guys!
I was wondering if it is possible to copy all the setup files of Windows XP from Windows XP CD to a USB Flash drive and then start the installation from there? I mean it is possible to boot from usb flash drives. Is it possible to make the flash drive bootable as motherboards support this thing and then start windows xp installation because I don't have access to a cd rom or a floppy drive but i have all the xp set files on my harddisk.
I will appreciate your help

Just extract ISO image of your boot able windows into your flash drive and set your motherboard bios 1st boot device flash drive and give it a try. It should work. Let us know by giving it a try.
