well i know xp can be done because i made xp and vista together but i thought just maybe i could get all of them so i can have a usb key for 32 bit versions of xp,vista,and 7 and have another key for 64bit versions of xp,vista,and 7. Ill take a look at your links now.

If your OS is on CD..just create an ISO image of the CD.Otherwise download it from Microsoft. Use UltraISO to burn to a flash drive. This video will help. I have used it and it works great!
