windows xp x64 sp2 setup from USB memory.....

Post by spawn » Sat Feb 05, 2011 3:37 am

I'd love to learn an easy way to install windows xp x64 from usb memory stick. I have a 4gb verbatim store n go flash drive.
I have made so many dud discs from breaking xp installs and i cannot test on vm cuz my sustem won't support it (intel EM64T)
my system supports booting from usb i have ran dos from it.
perhaps that uh ryanvm integrator could add such as a feature?
but if theres anyone there who can help anything prooven to work will do.
Thanyou for reading :)

The method allready exist. Firstly read about this 4 things:
LiveXP WinBuilder PeToUSB WinNTSetup
WinNTSetup will give you even ability to add drivers at install time.

VMWare should work on your system to test.

There is also a lot of different ways to boot from usb ... just "google".
I personally use "Wintoflash"

Code: Select all

A new WinNTSetup version can be found here. Support for it has moved to the MSFN boards. You might want to ask there about the 900MB restriction.

WinNTSetup is quick and easy.
Also, I'd like to recommend winsetupfromusb-with-gui it has great freatures for the experienced and works with more oses than windows (unix, linux, bartpe, etc)
