WinXP Install from USB Flash Drive...

cyberghost_1
My Q: is can I extract an ISO of WinXP to a Flash Drive instead of burning it to a DVD-R... the reason being is that I have a Netbook and currently don?t have an external DVD-RW Drive...so I have no other option and by the way this is the way I installed Win7 Ultimate on my Netbook, so it should work with XP as well right?? I?m creating a new partition just for XP so I can have a dual OS system...

And you won't have to waste time rebooting to bring up XP. It'll run under "7" just fine.

About loading a flash drive from an ISO I can't help you there. Sorry.

Actually I do have a Virtual Drive... I have MagicISO + MagicDisk. I also have tried Alcohol 120% and Daemon Tools, but with the ISO I have it keeps asking me to insert the XP disk into the drive which I don?t have since its a Netbook. One thing, the Virtual Drive letter I set to V:, but either way it still asks me to insert the disk even if i set the Virtual Drive letter to D:...any further advise??

this program will do it all for you, just goto the website download, and if you need any help there should be a guide, but it is pretty self explanatory.

Seriously, I loaded XP on a netbook in about 45 minutes, without having to extract any ISOs or fiddle with anything special.
