Could we put XP in USB Flash Disk? without harddrive.
Any tiny XP software run in USB Flash Disk?
It will be very useful for me.
I meant for maintenance purpose.
Thanks a lot.
Possibly, but probably not knowing Microsoft, and I don't know of any howtos for it.
Best bet for a portable OS is Knoppix or similar, though that's Linux which you may not want (but I can very much recommend!)
It is possible to run WinXP off a USB Drive (google for BartPE) but much harder installing it from a usbdisk.
If you find one you will have to make sure the PC you wish to run it on can boot from USB (bios settings).
it is possible ... but it is very slow..
yes you can usb flash disks now comes with 32 Gb I guess so there is too much room for you files. but you can't use it for maintenance purposes. why? because the settings/hardware information you have on your PC might be different from the PC that you will be working with. and if it will boot, you will get a blue screen of death.
If there is storage space and your mainboard can read it you can run anything from solid state memory.
wel, I think that it could lead to some problems as with running it on Different Versions of BIOS and different Hardware, and its easily to get corrupted
yes it's possible, there is a version out there of xp that is meant for flash disk drives, i was goin to get it but i didnt want it, it's sweet, actually, u can boot up any computer with it....except macs, i hate macs.
Sorry freind but at this moment, it s not possible. you have to wait may be Bill Gate will do it as soon as possible.
But for maintenance i think the real soft 4 Windows is ERD Commander.
It cost but very useful. it start windows even if ther is a problem with tha intalled os or your HDD.
You boot from the CD and you have you windows on the screen like the installed one.
