USB Flash Drives with ReadyBoost Feature are required to use the feature of Windows Vista. First U will need this and then just plug it in USB Port, Right Click on the Drive you will find a tab to configure the device as RAM.

Note : Tab appears on all USB Flash Drives but the feature is configurable only over readyboost enabled ones

It will not work with xp or any other version of windows except vista, and it has to be a readyboot compatible flash drive to work.

Very slow transfer to Kingston 8GB datatraveler


HI,

- Check if your PC is running at its maximum efficiency
- Close all side processes that are not of any use to you. This can be done by pressing :Ctrl+Shift+Esc and then going to processes. In there only close the processes that are under your user name and are of no use. NOTE: DON'T CLOSE "EXPLORER.EXE". This will free a sizeable amount of your RAM, making your PC generally faster.
- While copying anything, avoid multi-tasking as that will simply slow down your PC, causing a delay in the copying.
IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, then create a back-up of all the software in your Pen-Drive and then format it.
This should just about do it.
If still the problem persists, go to your dealer- your pen-drive must be in its warranty period.

How to install vista from pendrive


Its very difficult to install windows vista if you are not having a DVD drive, Especially when you are planning to upgrade your windows xp system you would like to see how vista looks. So you need to install it and see. Requirements: USB pen drive 4GB or more
Windows vista DVD

Step 1: Download HP USB storage format tool from here and install on your computer.
Step 2: Once you finish installation, double click on HP USB storage format tool and format your pen drive in NTFS
For this, select NTFS from File system option and Check quick format option and click on start.

Once the format finished you will get a message with the details and Click
on OK

Now insert Windows vista DVD in to DVD Drive and go to command prompt.
For that go to start -> RUN and type CMD and press enter or OK

You will see the command prompt with black back ground
Now you need to change the directory to your DVD drive where you put the windows vista DVD.

For that type G: and press enter (here I am using G because in my system DVD drive letter is G. So you need to check your DVD drive letter and type accordingly)

So the directory will change to G:>
Now type cd boot and press enter
Now the interface will be like G:boot>
Then type bootsect.exe /nt60 h: (where h is the drive letter of your pen drive)
Now you will get a successful message like below

Now you can close the command prompt and copy all the contents from the windows vista DVD to the pen drive

It will start copying now

Once it’s finished, you need to restart your pc and access the bios of your system and make first boot device as USB pen drive.
That’s it, now you can see installation starts from the USB pen drive.

I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive


Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.
