So it's in the title "How do i boot from a USB/Flash drive?"
Check this out mate Boot on a Pendrive
Funny enough i've just found that page
And i figured i should of thought about the title more it should of been "how do i make a bootable pen drive" or something, lol.
Is that right what i said, lol. i just want to be able to install my XP from a pen drive, lol.
Ahh wait I've got a linky for that
Install xp from usb flash drive
Tried it on my friends lappy that has no dvd/cd drive and it works.
Seems an awful lot just to make an OS install from a pen drive.
Think i'll get on it tomorrow when im more awake!
Right good luck and get some rest
Wouldn't someone be able to send me a pre-made image file for the pen drive? I could always put the OS on myself then?
XP doesnt really work on flash drives, its complicated because it reboots too many times, and drive letters can change.
Vista and 7 its a hell of a lot easier - you're really just copying the files from the DVD to the flash drive.
I always instsall my OS's from a flash drive these days, saves disks.
