    I looked around with google and seen no one installs their o/s from a flash drive. I found out that it works very very well.

    you can add &fmt=18 to end of the video address to watch it in high quality. add &fmt=22 for HD, but that doesn't work on this video,

    Thanks for posting a video for us! :toast:

    Too bad you can't link this video to your builds.
    DaMulta says thanks.
  17. wolf2009 Guest

    the profile thing doesn't work if the youtube player doesn't show "Watch in High Quality". Then the video plays in low quality.

    To enable High Quality if the "Watch in High Quality" link doesn't appear, use &fmt=18

    Well D, I ended up having to burn a DVD. My DFI board must not like it cause I followed everything, NTFS Format and extract with WinRAR (I own a license and use 3.80 Pro). Came back invalid boot disk press enter. :ohwell:

    I wonder why it didn't like it.

    I didn't do a quick format did you?
